Nobel laureate rips Bush, his "bleating little lamb"
class=img_thumbleft>75-year-old British playwrightHarold Pinter
won't be able to attend the ceremony for his Nobel Prize this Saturday, but he's already videotaped hisacceptance speech
. He describes the Iraq War as "blatant state terrorism," and reserves extra tongue lashing for the "pathetic and supine" Tony Blair, suggesting that Blair be tried as a war criminal. Pinter points out that he'd see President George W. Bush tried as well, but the crafty W. has made the scenario impossible by refusing to recognize international courts. The White House has released no immediate word whether Pinter will be included in this year's Christmas card list.
