BALI BOMBING

------------


Scoop Editorial - NZers Are Entitled To The Truth

- “The bottom line is, neither the US nor Australia nor NZ nor anyone else had information that would lead them to tell their nationals not to go to Bali,” says Prime Minister Helen Clark on Radio New Zealand this afternoon. And apparently Radio New Zealand is willing to accept this – at least at this stage anyway. Scoop is not. See... Scoop Editorial: Our PM And The Business Of Lying [1]

Bali Bombing: Where To Buy Your Own C-4
