Like Tom Cruise in “A Few Good Men”, I wonder when someone is going to use the “Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire” routine when referencing the White House in the future. Bush is supposed to take to the Press podium in the morning after it was disclosed that he fought the release of this report for the last YEAR as the White House attempted unsuccessfully to get the intelligence community to toe the party line.

The NIE report says Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and it remains on hold, contradicting the Bush administration’s earlier assertion that Tehran was intent on developing a bomb.

Sigh

  • There’s nothing there that sounds like they are not intent on developing a bomb… Have a program to develop nuclear weapons? Check. On hold, but not eliminated? Check.

    You know, I had plans to run to the bathroom 30 minutes ago, but I had to do work first, so I put those plans on hold. I still intended on going to the bathroom, but not at that moment. Eventually, my plans were resumed and I did run to the bathroom.

  • I don’t think this is bad news for the administration. What happened in 2003 to to cause the Iranians to put their weapons program on hold? Is it possible they were deterred by the aggressive military action in Iraq?

  • Bad news? This is the best news I’ve heard in months!! When the President goes in front of the press and talks up the possibility of “World War III” (his words) and the VP goes around the country preaching impending Armageddon, it’s a relief to hear that, in fact, Iran’s spurious nuclear program has actually been on hold for the past four years.

    And of course it’s been on hold because of our action in Iraq. I can just hear those mullah’s: “That Bush guy is NUTS – maybe we should rethink our nuclear program.” What’s hilarious is that they didn’t know that the Bush administration wouldn’t give a damn about the fact that they stopped enriching – thankfully our agenda isn’t really tied to facts on the ground; as long as the public can be scared to death, the President can do whatever he wants.
