north. >> will tony blair's correspondence with george bush be published before mr. blair's next appearance in front of the iraq inquiry? >> my honorable friend will know that there is a long- standing convention, quite rightly, that a serving prime minister does not and cannot order the release of papers that refer to a previous prime minister. that is why the cabinet secretary will be looking at this issue, which is a matter for him. anyone unhappy with the conclusions is clearly able to write to tony blair to make their views known. for my own part, i hope this inquiry can be as open and clear as possible so that we get to the bottom of the very important issues it is looking at. >> as the prime minister will be aware, i spent most of my working life in schools and colleges, so i have overwhelming evidence of the benefits of the education maintenance allowance. it brings benefits to teenagers from modest backgrounds in terms of their employability skills and in raising their achievement. may i urge the prime minister to go back to the position when he pledged to support ema, s

emergency much research as i king george hospital, cutting frontline, shouldn't he have said i'll cut the nhs, not the deficit? >> the honorable gentleman is just one because the deficit is coming down. the nhs spending is going up to out as part of it and i know that his own health spokesman said it is irresponsible to increase spending on nhs. we didn't think it was a responsible. we think it is the right thing to do. as he knows the health secretary has set up the crotch area for all local changes, including in his constituency. it has to be proper public engagement. there has to be some clinical evidence. there has to be support from commissioners and has the proper support for patient choice. >> the prime minister has taken a strong interest in the incredible work of the oxford parent infant project in helping families who are struggling to form a strong attachment with their babies. two months ago i started a new charity in my constituency. and with the premise is interest in strengthening families, would he commit to look again at the incredible work that can be done in earlier

asked if i'd read the book by george higgins. i told him i hadn't, hadn't heard of it, and swanee said this is your kind of book. this is your kind of stuff, kiddo your run out and get it before you write another word. i got the book and read the opening sentence in the store. jackie brown, at 26, with no expression on his face, said that he could get some guns. i finished the book at home in one sitting, it was like 180 pages, and felt like i had been set free. he moved to story almost entirely with dialogue. the conversations of cops and criminals. their voices establishing the style of his writing. i stopped trying to care what was going on in my books, and begin to show, begin to show what from the points of view and the voices of the characters. bad guys and good ones, the way george higgins used his ear to tell what his people were up to. five years after the call came up, a "new york times" review of one of my books said that often cannot resist a set piece, and lowbrow or a, with a crazy kind of scatological poetry. with the manner of george v. higgins. that's pretty much

congress. after that, it would get out quickly. this is going to be a huge moment. president george w. bush said he wanted osama bin laden dead or alive. there was a key frustration of his. before he left office, there was another push to see if they could track him down. even bill clinton weighed in saying this is a profoundly important moment. the crowd outside the white house gathering. i was coming into the studio into could hear them to the blocks away chanting "usa." at baseball games, the word leaked out in the middle of the game. the fans erupted in cheers of "usa." this will be "a profound moment," to use the words of the president. >> he did use those words and say it was a significant achievement. what did they say as far as the plan next? obama said u.s. authorities had custody of osama bin laden's body. are they saying what they will do with it? >> they are not saying. it is going to be the key debate. there will be those who do not believe the united states. in the case of saddam hussein, they did put the pictures on tv. the question is whether they want to do that. this

for you, mr. george, is it seems that there is an argument being made that there was no political motivation indeed actions. is that a conclusion that you have reached? >> in the review we conducted thus far, senator, that is the conclusion was reached. >> and how do you reach that kind of conclusion? >> it is, in this instance it was as a result of the interviews that were conducted for people who are most directly involved in the overall matter. and so you take it one step by another, and we directly inquired as to whether or not there was direction from people in washington beyond those who are directly related to the determinations the unit. and their indication to us, and i have to note this is not done under oath. and began an audit and not an investigation. but they did indicate to us that they did not receive direction from people beyond the irs. >> when you see people beyond the irs, that could be anyone up the chain of the irs? >> it's very could be, but we have no evidence thus far that it was beyond begin the people, the determination skimming. >> so in other words, yo

president referred to, during the election as this young preacher from george which is dr. martin luther king junior, who sort of leads the masses from racial oppression. so this notion that rosa sat and martin could do this stuff and jesse could run and then barack could fly, all these things. they sound good but they really, they really simplify a much more complicated history. and that complicated history really involves so many african-americans, women and men, who proactively dismantle racial segregation, including rosa parks. rosa parks was an activist that she didn't just refuse to give up her seat by accident. it was a concerted, strategic ever to try to transform democratic institutions. so the lessons that we have to impart to our kids into the nation is at this isn't just something that happens by accident. by these iconic figures. like a dr. martin of the king junior come down from on high and help the rest of those. that was really a debate during the election. because remember, hillary clinton said that even though martin luther king jr. was important come it took a preside

nice kind of complementary way, the same evening that george h.w. bush spoke before a joint session of congress and called for a new world order be the six dcc countries plus syria and egypt called for a new order because the one that was shattered to smithereens because of the iraqi one there. the bottom line here is noninterference in iraq's affairs lest they open the door and leave them exposed and vulnerable at any point in iraq's interference in their affairs. and the same thing with regard to iran. there's no discussion about iran's elections. there's no discussions about fraud or free and fair or open and transparent electoral processes. there's no discussion about mahmoud ahmadinejad prospects or that faction or this faction for the same exact reasons that i gave before, about not giving iran any pretext to interfere in their societies to any greater degree than iran already has over the last 30 years. with regard to yemen this time, yes, they did address yemen but in a unanimous support for saudi arabia's position as well as the yemen government's position and going over an
