liar, again

So, the intelligence community believes Iran actually suspended its nuclear weapons program in the fall of 2003. Very interesting. You have to believe them - you KNOW they feel strongly if they publish this estimate in what I'm sure must have been strenuous opposition from the White House and the Office of Dick Cheney Affairs. Also interesting that they actually assessed the idea that this could be a disinformation campaign - the opposite of the one Saddam's Iraq had which tried to convince Iraq's enemies that Iraq DID have weapons of mass destruction, when in fact they did not.

Presumably, this will make it harder for the de facto Bush Administration to attack Iran. But look at the timing - the intelligence types reached the conclusion that Iran does NOT have nukes and won't in the short term in the summer, and briefed the White House on that. In October, Bush said we'd have World War III if we didn't stop Iran. In other words, Bush lied to us all once again.

I'm shocked.
