    "Among the dozens of documents in English were Iraqi reports written in the 1990s and in 2002 for United Nations inspectors in charge of making sure Iraq had abandoned its unconventional arms programs after the Persian Gulf war. Experts say that at the time, Mr. Hussein’s scientists were on the verge of building an atom bomb, as little as a year away."

    That's interesting

    It is blatantly obvious that the author of this little number did not take the time to read the article itself. Or he did, but ignored context, and made an ass of himself. Very professional.

    When drudgereport linked him up to the article, he does the usual "liberal times downplays the threat yada, yada, yada".

    This line is my favorite: "The information in these documents is so dangerous, that every step must be taken to ensure it doesn't end up in the wrong hands... except for topping the regime that actually has the documents."

    Typical conservative ignores that Iraq did not have the capability to actually build these weapons and gives no second thought to losing thousands of lives for directions to build a bomb.

    Again, if too dangerous for American sites to publish the documents, for fear it will land in the hands of Iranians or others; so too if Saddam or others had sold them.
