As an American seeing the headline, I just would have assumed that we had "specific and credible information" that the Yorkshirians were harboring al Queda terrorists--and that Blair had been "thoroughly briefed" and agreed, approving the bombing himself. "If the Yorkshirians are not with us in our fight, they will see more bombs at a time and place of our choosing," said Presidente Bush.
