Ruperts orders

Who was Blair taking orders from? Bush, Murdoch or both?
Tony Blair spoke to the media mogul Rupert Murdoch three times in the 10 days before the outbreak of the Iraq war - once on the eve of the US-led invasion - it was disclosed yesterday.The telephone conversations were among six calls between the two men detailed by the cabinet office in response to a freedom of information request by the Liberal Democrat peer Lord Avebury....No details were given of what subjects Mr Blair and the News Corporation chairman discussed in the calls on March 11, 13 and 19 2003, ahead of the launch of US-led military action in Iraq on March 20.

Then again, perhaps I have a suspicious mind. Maybe he just wanted to make sure Rupert's organs were going to support him in spewing his lies whilst ordinary men, women and children were incinerated in the 'Shock and Awe' blitz of Iraq. It does reveal the power of unelected moguls like Murdoch, who can exert unprecedented influence including subverting the public opposition to war.

Maybe you do have a suspicious mind, but I don't trust it all the same either. I believe in coincidences of course, coincidences happen everyday. But I certainly don't trust coincidences... I'm sure there is something to these calls.
