The Emperor's Clothes

President Bush held a press conference today. Announcing that despite the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) claim that Iran stopped pursuing nuclear weapons in 2003, Iran remains a threat to our national security and international interests.

Why does the NIE have information in it that is supposedly not available to our President, who claims to have only seen this information this week. Why has it taken this long to discredit the President's erroneous claim?

Bottom line, Iran was not and is not looking to start World War III like our President claims. If not them, then who? I'm going to ask the man in the shiny new suit of clothes.

Iran Stopped Weapons Program in 2003

I don't really remember what happened in 2003, I had to Google it. Here's a refresher in case you forgot. The Raiders were in the Super Bowl, and lost to Tampa Bay.

What else happened in 2003? Oh yeah, the invasion of Iraq. The Department of Homeland Security was founded. It was a banner year for the administration. Karl Rove and Scooter were destroying the careers of Valerie
"Fair Game Plame and Joe "Eat your yellowcake" Wilson

The drumbeats should fade away along with this administration and their deceptive ways. Iran is not a real threat. There is a good probability that Ahmadinejad will lose his election. What kind of threat is Iran now?

The real crime here is that there will be no investigation into what happened with Iraq intelligence, or who was making energy policy in the Vice-President's office, and why is there a continual string of intelligence that has no backing in reality? Who created the Iran threat?

Here's a hint, it wasn't Iran.
