Smoking Gun on Iran Vanishes in a Puff of Purple Smoke

::John Wayne as George Washington McClintock imitation:: I should read the Washington Post. I should. The h--- I should: This news on Iran: the Washington Post is reporting that a group of U.S. government experts and other international scientists have determined that traces of bomb-grade uranium found two years ago in Iran came from contaminated Pakistani equipment and are not evidence of a clandestine nuclear weapons program. One senior official said, "The biggest smoking gun that everyone was waving is now eliminated with these conclusions." The Bush administration had pointed to the material as evidence that Iran was making bomb-grade ingredients. The Post really does deserve a pop in its collective mouth after having helped push this nation to the brink of-- and maybe over the brink of-- war with Iran.
If Bush tries to get us into a hot war with Iran, the GOP Congress will impeach him inside of six months.

They're already scared to death over the negative effect Iraq's having on their 2006 chances. Only the sheer spinelessness -- or the sheer refusal to admit error -- of the leading Beltway Democrats (Dean and Clark excepted, but then those two will never be accepted by the ruling DLC/Blue Dog clique) is what stands between the GOP and utter electoral collapse next year.
