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.

...

Officials of the International Atomic Energy Agency, fearing that the information could help states like Iran develop nuclear arms, had privately protested last week to the American ambassador to the agency, according to European diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the issue’s sensitivity. One diplomat said the agency’s technical experts “were shocked” at the public disclosures.


I'm sorry, did the New York Times just put on the front page that Iraq had a nuclear weapons program and was plotting to build an atomic bomb?

What? Wait a minute. The entire mantra of the war critics has been "no WMDs, no WMDs, no threat, no threat", for the past three years solid. Now we're being told that the Bush administration erred by making public information that could help any nation build an atomic bomb.

Let's go back and clarify: IRAQ HAD NUCLEAR WEAPONS PLANS SO ADVANCED AND DETAILED THAT ANY COUNTRY COULD HAVE USED THEM.

I think the Times editors are counting on this being spun as a "Boy, did Bush screw up" meme; the problem is, to do it, they have to knock down the "there was no threat in Iraq" meme, once and for all. Because obviously, Saddam could have sold this information to anybody, any other state, or any well-funded terrorist group that had publicly pledged to kill millions of Americans and had expressed interest in nuclear arms. You know, like, oh... al-Qaeda.

The New York Times just tore the heart out of the antiwar argument, and they are apparently completely oblivous to it.

Yes, Iraq did have an extensive, advanced nuclear weapons development program before 1991. No one has ever disputed that.

Somewhere on Google, are plans READ: PLANS to make WMD. Not materials.

Maybe we should invade Google.

Let's think about this for a minute:
America has well over TEN THOUSAND nuclear warheads
America is the only one to have shown to be crazy enough to use atomic and/or nuclear capabilities on not one but two densely populated cities (Nagasaki and Hiroshima)
Since WW2 America has bombed/attacked over 40 countries. Not a single one of them had any nuclear/atomic capabilities (so it's fair to say that if you get a nuke, Yanks will leave you alone)
Pre-9/11 America was spending 200 billion/year on it's defense industry. That my friend was more than the entire world combined. But Americans have increased, almost doubled their "defense' spending since that.

Now think about it a minute, think long and hard. Do you really think Americans, the greatest most violent, most aggressive military power on earth would have anything to fear from Iran, a sand box in the middle of the desert?

I hope for the Iranians sake that they do have the bomb, this will ensure them safety from the American bully.

Oops, I didn't read properly, I though this was about Iran, not Iraq. I'll have to repost an other one accordingly.

Well there's all the answers I mentioned in this post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...
They pretty much hold true for Iraq as well as Iran but there is one important distinction between Iran ans Iraq: Americans didn't help Iran build it's nuclear capabilities.
That's right my friend, under the Reagan/Bush I years, Saddam was not only benefitting from the Americans' help to build WMDs of all sort, but they were also getting help for their nuclear capabilities. At some point, the Americans were even delivering WMD seeds directly to the Iraqi Nuclear facilities the Americans helped build. However those WMD seeds were given deceptive labels to make it look like they were intended for research and medical purpose.
