A whopping NY Times story: Republicans' efforts to defend the invasion of Iraq by posting all kinds of Iraqi documents on the web have had the effect of putting nuclear-weapon-making information in the hands of anyone with a computer. Heckuva job, Repubs. The website has, in the last 24 hours, been shut down on account of the Times' inquiries.
Noted: It is NOT news that Saddam had such plans, which pre-date the 1991 war. The news is that the Repubs shared them with the world. We know that the earlier war and UN inspections had held his continued work in check. If Saddam's unfulfilled designs can justify a war, tell me apologists, why aren't we invading a country that's actually making the dang things (North Korea)?
