A very strange speculation

The New Statesman is a proper print publication. Not a stream of wild imaginings from a chat room. They do have a blog however.

I have heard an interesting suggestion that when questions were first asked about this event, UK government officials were planning an outright denial. How could they possibly pull this off? Because apparently Bush discussed using a missile, so it wasn't strictly speaking a bomb he intended to use.

Strange or what? I think this is maybe meant to suggest to the legal authorities that preventing reporting of what was said in court can only result in speculation. Given the remarks to Channel 4 by David Blunkett there is reason to suppose that "taking out" (the phrase used by Blunkett) Al Jazeera was discussed at some point.
