Truth to Power

So in five years…

When gas is $6 a gallon, thousands more US troops have been killed, and the Middle East is even more of a lunatic asylum than it is today, some yap is gonna go “But everybody thought that they had a bomb…”. So we can get the “I told ya so’s” out of the way, there’s this:

No evidence of Iranian nuclear-weapons program, experts say

WASHINGTON – Despite President Bush’s claims that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons that could trigger ‘‘World War III,’’ experts in and out of government say there’s no conclusive evidence that Tehran has an active nuclear-weapons program.

Even his own administration appears divided about the immediacy of the threat. While Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney speak of an Iranian weapons program as a fact, Bush’s point man on Iran, Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns, has attempted to ratchet down the rhetoric.

‘’Iran is seeking a nuclear capability . . . that some people fear might lead to a nuclear-weapons capability,’’ Burns said in an interview Oct. 25 on PBS.

‘’I don’t think that anyone right today thinks they’re working on a bomb,’’ said another U.S. official, who requested anonymity because of the issue’s sensitivity.</em>

Same lies, same liars, same sheep of a nation.

It’s groundhog day for sociopaths.
