About the al Jazeera memo

I got into this through writing for OhmyNews about the al Jazeera memo, as reported by the London Daily Mirror a record of a conversation about possible action against the offices of the TV station. This is now subject to the Official Secrets Act in the UK. Maybe this should be presented as a feedom of speech issue. As in it is a limitation on free speech to be bombed. If that was proposed. Even if meant as a joke such a discussion would be a concern if it actually happened.

Looking through Google News it turned out that Dan Froomkin was about the only person writing about this in Washington. and he did add a comment that this issue merited a follow up question or two.
