Because its too good for one post

TKS on National Review Online: "Is this sentence referring to 1990, before the Persian Gulf War? Or 2002, months before the invasion of Iraq? Because 'Iraq is a year away from building a nuclear bomb' was supposed to be a myth, a lie that Bush used to trick us into war.

And yet here is the New York Times, saying that Iraq had a 'how to manual' on how to build a nuclear bomb, and could have had a nuke in a year."

And I'm sitting here thinkin' it was probably no more than has been public for fifty years. I could be wrong, of course, but I'm going to wait awhile to take a position on these papers. Are there copies anywhere?

But having the NYT play the game this way *is* weird. It is truly the crazy season.

I am flabergasted. What prompted the NY Times to publish this piece? This is a gift to the Republican Party. Rush Limbaugh and the other conservative radio talk show host will make this widely known.

"What prompted the NY Times to publish this piece?"

Just a wild guess but it may be part of a preemptive PR strategy concerning coming indictments of the Times. It's not a legal strategy at all but it could serve as a liner for the butt cover they're knitting.

curiouser and curiouser.

One thing that I have argued with the left from day one has always been, remember the 90's. Remember what Saddam was known to be.

But nooooo, they had to start playing the Saddam the victim game, and here they are printing a reminder of who and what we were really dealing with.
