"Let's Bomb Them Unless They Act Like Fox!"

First, the Downing Street memo described Senior British intelligence officials as stating, in an internal communique, that, in America the "intelligence was being fixed around the policy" of invading Iraq.

Now, a British man is being prosecuted for revealing official state secrets. The secret documents: a classified memo that describes President Bush voicing his desire to bomb the offices of Al Jazerra.

I'm speechless, again.

Here's Jane Smiley's excellent essay about what it means to be a superpower and why we're no longer fitting the bill. Kind of seems timely and appropriate in light of the revelation that our chosen leader wants to, once again, shoot first and ask questions later...

Here's an article I found at alternet.org from The Nation on the subject.
