Al-Jazeera: show us the memo

The head of Al-Jazeera has asked British Prime Minister Tony Blair to release a memo that reportedly shows President Bush talking about bombing the network.

British newspapers and broadcasters say they have been warned that publishing the memo might be a violation of the Official Secrets Act. The attorney general now says he was only suggesting that they get legal advice before publication and not trying “to gag” them.
