Do As I Say, Not As I Do.

I know its President Bush's job to take a line on the cartoon furore, and I know he was doing his level best to sound balanced, but the man just can't help leaving himself open every time he opens his mouth:

"We reject violence as a way to express discontent at what is printed" (GWB, 2/8/06)

Well, perhaps against what is printed, but other media?

11/22/05: Bush Plot to Bomb Arab Ally. "President Bush planned to bomb Arab TV station al-Jazeera in friendly Qatar, a "Top Secret" No 10 memo reveals."

Tuesday, April 8 2003: Al-Jazeera reporter killed."Al-Jazeera TV says one of its journalists was killed Tuesday when a U.S. airstrike hit a building housing Arab media..."

And so on.
