U.S. Web Archive Is Said to Reveal a Nuclear Primer

New York Times???

November 3, 2006
Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.

Last night, the government shut down the Web site after The New York Times asked about complaints from weapons experts and arms-control officials. A spokesman for the director of national intelligence said access to the site had been suspended “pending a review to ensure its content is appropriate for public viewing.”

So, once again, we jump into the 'way back machine' and see that the fear of "WMD's" was very accurate. Seems to me, after 9/11/2001, one of the biggest fears we had was a 'dirty bomb' being detonated in a metropolitan area. Hmmmm, I wonder where the nuclear fuel would have come from. Perhaps someone with the ability to refine Plutonium, who had a strong hatred for the President as well as the United States of America, and enough money (golden toilets) to underwrite such an attempt?

Seems to me the decision to get after Iraq and S.H. wasn't quit the Fubar as some have purported.

Stay the course or cut and run. In the late 70's here in Mexifornia (formerly California) there sat super freeway overpasses that went to nowhere. Seems the democratic Governor (Jerry Brown) decided that it was best to abandon a huge infrastructure enhancement project for the sake of $$$. His solution was 'cut and run' also. Fortunately for Mexifornia (formerly California), Republican Pete Wilson followed up and finished the job.

Let's clean up the mess we made in Iraq, and move on to the next threat against America and her Allies.
