Media Conspiracy?

It really is amazing!

On the 23rd of November, 2011, an event of major importance took place in Kuala Lumpur – A War Crimes Tribunal in Malaysia has found former US President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair guilty of war crimes for their roles in the Iraq war – and the main media sites in the UK, ie. BBC, Guardian, Telegraph, reported – NOTHING!

A search was made on each of these sites to ensure that I had not missed the report inadvertently. The search drew a blank in every case. I suspect the same will be true of all major media outlets. There seems to be a blanket agreement to keep the matter from the public eye. However, my sources of information pointed me to the right spot – http://www.presstv.ir/detail/211590.html – Bush, Blair found guilty of war crimes

If you Google for “Bush, Blair war criminals”, you will find other sources too, but none of them mainstream news sites.

Bush may be comparatively safe, if he stays at home, as the US is not a signatory to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. But Blair, and the UK, are quite a different matter.

Even now, Bush is taking the risk of being arrested abroad rather seriously. A search for “Bush cancelled speaking engagement” returns 125,000 results on Google, and I note that arrest warrants have been issued for him in Switzerland. The web page at http://mycatbirdseat.com/2011/02/gordon-duff-bush-“blood-money”-tour-cancelled/ carries the leader “Former President George “W” Bush has been forced to cancel a highly paid speaking engagement to an Israeli group in Switzerland. Bush was going to be arrested as a war criminal. He is now fighting extradition. This will not be reported in any American mainstream media.”

On 28th November, 2011, I wrote to the editors of the BBC, Guardian and Telegraph websites to ask why a matter of such widespread importance was not being reported on their site. Until now, I have not received a reply.
