Polishifter has one of the best posts I’ve read regarding the recent NIE report. A shippet:
Bush once again asserted that Iran can’t even get ‘the knowledge’ of how to build a nuclear bomb. This is a completely ridiculous statement. I’ve written about it before here. Bush cannot prevent Iran from obtaining ‘the knowledge’ of how to build a nuke because that knowledge is everywhere. It’s on the internets, text books, libraries, and videos.
This blog was one of the first to report that the NIE was being delayed for political reasons. George Bush tried his moron act again today (i.e., “I didn’t find out about this until last week.”) but this time the turd ain’t floating. The news that Iran ended its nuclear program in 2003 was briefed to George Bush in the Presidential Daily Brief. He has known about this, I am told, for at least one year. George Bush is lying when he insists he had no inkling, until last week, that the intelligence community believed Iran halted its nuke program in 2003.
Very, very interesting.
