George Bush had Jack Straw sacked as UK Foreign Secretary?

Jack Straw opposed a military strike on Iran.

Jack Straw has been pushed out of the Foreign Office by Blair.

Straw had said repeatedly that a military strike on Iran is "inconceivable".

Straw had dismissed as "nuts" a report that George Bush was keeping on the table the option of using tactical nuclear weapons against Tehran's nuclear plants.

(The two crucial mistakes that cost Straw his job )

On 6 May 2006, Ewen MacAskill, diplomatic editor of The Guardian, wrote of Straw:

His fate was sealed when the White House called Mr Blair and asked why the foreign secretary kept saying these things.

Britain's new Foreign secretary, Margaret Beckett, will fly to New York on Monday for a meeting with Condoleezza Rice.
