Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant

Boris Johnson, Member of Parliament, is willing to publish the memo describing Bush's desire to bomb al-Jazeera:
But if there is an ounce of truth in the notion that George Bush seriously proposed the destruction of al-Jazeera, and was only dissuaded by the Prime Minister, then we need to know, and we need to know urgently. We need to know what we have been fighting for, and there is only one way to find out.
If someone passes me the document within the next few days I will be very happy to publish it in The Spectator, and risk a jail sentence. The public need to judge for themselves. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. If we suppress the truth, we forget what we are fighting for, and in an important respect we become as sick and as bad as our enemies.
Bush has already forgotten what we are fighting for, if he ever knew. His war is not the war he sold the country. He's the Bait and Switch President, in oh, so many ways.

But go read Boris Johnson's posting.
