I put the "if true" part in there because I have a hard time believing this hasn't come out before now. http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/09/23/1064082978207.html The Rice thing won't be so easy to prove. But if he actually has friggin' video of Powell saying that....I wanna see Axis Alex squirm his way out of that. On the one hand, my gosh, it's been 2 1/2 years since the footage was shot, and a year since it became significant. OTOH, according to the article, the reporter wasn't actually there, he just recently found out about it. And, Pilger's career has got to be over if he tries such an obvious lie. He'll have to put up or shut up. Needless to say, if that tape gets aired in the US, it's must see TV.
