More Bad WMD Intelligence: This Time IRAN

George Bush almost led us into another war based on false and/or flawed intelligence. The Saddam WMD debacle was bad enough, but Mr. Bush was clearly whetting his knife for another preemptive attack on Iran. That other 'axis of evil.'

Hold on, George! Seems that there is now evidence in the news headline, US officials say Iran nuclear weapons program stopped in 2003. The article begins:

Iran halted its nuclear weapons development program in the fall of 2003 under international pressure but is continuing to enrich uranium, which means it may still be able to develop a weapon between 2010 and 2015, senior U.S. intelligence officials said Monday.
That finding is a change from two years ago, when U.S. intelligence agencies believed Iran was determined to develop a nuclear capability and was continuing its weapons development program. It suggests that Iran is susceptible to diplomatic pressure, the official said.

The BUT is always a problem, especially with this warmongering administration. They always look for the loophole. Bush and Cheney love blood-letting, as long as it is someone else's.

We await the spin out of the White House. It ought to be a Dramamine moment for sure.
