Blair threatens newpapers over Bush bombing threat

The <UK> Attorney General sought yesterday to squash further reports concerning the leaked record of a conversation between the Prime Minister and President Bush during which the latter suggested attacking the headquarters of the Arab satellite television channel al-Jazeera, based in Qatar, a key Gulf ally.

Lord Goldsmith warned media organisations that they might face prosecution under the Official Secrets Act if they published the contents of the top secret document.

Meanwhile, the White House denies everything as Blair threatens prosecution if newspapers print the memo, plus two men have been arrested for leaking the memo. All of which certainly implies the memo exists, now doesn’t it?
