Everybody is talking about the recent Bush conference and his idea that although the intelligence report that has been repressed for a year indicates that Iran halted its nuclear arms program in 2003, Bush insists that this means that Iran is more of a threat than ever.
Yes, I know that he is practicing doublespeak, I know that this is further evidence that nothing that the president says can be believed, I know that his saber rattling is a frightening indication that he wants to start another war, blah blah blah.
I am dumbfounded that nobody is talking about this quote as compared to a story that was buried about a year ago. The quote:"Iran was dangerous, Iran is dangerous, and Iran will be dangerous if they have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon,"
Bush told a White House news conference. iht.com
Hello!?!? Has everybody forgotten that Bush has already given the secrets of building an atomic bomb not only to Iran, but to every
evil empire in the world?
I remember when this story first broke. It's lifespan in the news cycle lasted from Friday afternoon to a Saturday morning. Supposedly the story was dropped because it was "unfair" and "too partisan" to run it because of the upcoming election.
A little over a year ago Bush put up a website that contained information that was captured in Iraq. Amongst this treasure trove the administration accidently overlooked part of the information that contained all of the secrets needed to build an atomic bomb.
The website was called "Operation Iraqi Freedom Document Portal",
which is of course no longer online. The damage is already done, however. Every intelligence agency in the world is constantly watching the White House website like a hawk. There can be no doubt that the nuclear secrets are now practically in the public domain.
