| Main japanese opposition party questions 9/11 in parliament - broadcasted on public TV
Japan's prime minister and main opposition rival clashed on Jan. 9th, 2008 over the controversial naval mission in support of U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan as the ruling bloc prepared to force an enabling law through parliament
Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, squaring off in parliament with Democratic Party leader Ichiro Ozawa for the first time since taking office, praised the navy's refueling mission as helping the global war on terrorism and urged the opposition-controlled upper house to vote on it before parliament ends on Jan. 15.
Ozawa insists the refueling mission violates Japan's pacifist constitution, and has not been approved formally by the United Nationsa position Fukuda flatly rejected.
Ozawas Japan Democratic party which is in the opposition tried to block the resumption of the mission, which supplies fuel and water to US-led forces operating in the Indian Ocean.
It claims that oil supplied by Japanese ships has been diverted for use in operations in Iraq, an accusation the Americans deny.
