Iran Never Had a Nuke Weapons Program


Antiwar.com’s Dr. Gordon Prather explains his suspicions that the CIA doesn’t have any credible evidence that Iran ever had a nuclear weapons program to halt in 2003 and that the timing of the NIE may have been meant to undercut ElBaradei’s anticipated report to that effect later this month.

  1. Thank you! I was waiting for someone to say this.

    The needle on my bull$#!& detector pegged when I heard they claimed Iran ‘canceled’ their supposed nuclear weapons program in 2003. It’s a completely brilliant move on the warmongers’ part. It allows them to avoid being embarrassingly wrong about the current state of Iran’s nuclear program, but without conceding that Iraq might not be the threat they claim it is. I was getting worried that no one seemed to be challenging it.

  2. When can you tell the Bush administration is lying? Their lips move. How corrupt is a country’s people to allow such liars to rule? The Bush agenda has nothing to do with governing in the interests of the people and everything to do with governing in the interests of some of the people. The greatest threat to humanity comes not from Iran but from Mr. Bush and his minions.

    1. We the People are entitled to get rid of those lying criminals in the White House. We MUST to save what little shreds of democraacy there is left. THE REMEDY IS IMPEACHMENT!

      Impeach Cheney NOW

      Defense of the Constitution Knows No Party

      The Bush administration has illegally seized and imprisoned Americans without benefit of their trial by jury, has spied on Americans without warrant in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, has lied America into a disastrous war, and has betrayed an American intelligence officer, who was working on weapons of mass destruction networks, to our enemies (Valerie Plame.)

      Impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney are now a distinct possibility, thanks to a recent outpouring of public support for impeachment by Americans across the political spectrum. Your calls and faxes to House Judiciary Committee members are needed to keep up the pressure.

      Leave a message for your Congressman, to demand he obey his oath to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Act now to restore your rights and the rule of law bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers, which brave men have died defending throughout our history.

      Call the House Judiciary Committee

      and demand that Impeachment hearings begin ASAP!

      *What Happened to Make This All Possible?

      On November 6, 2007, Rep. Dennis Kucinich brought H.Res.333, for the impeachment of Cheney, to the House Floor for debate. It was broadcast on CSPAN. A sudden outpouring of public support for impeachment forced lawmakers to keep the resolution alive. Democrats, most of whom currently resist demands for impeachment, were unwilling to kill the bill with the public watching. Republicans and some Democrats, mindful of impeachment sentiment, voted to debate the bill, but failed. At the end of the day, Americans of both parties had made it clear whose “table” this is, and that they want to see impeachment on it.
