How Bush helped the turrists Nov 04

The American administration has done some dumb things, along which invading Iraq stands tall. Although the President declared “Mission accomplished” soon afterwards, it’s fair to say there are still a few sceptics on both sides of the Atlantic. One of the US Government’s plans to win people over was to release onto teh internets a host of Iraqi documents that predated the invasion. They hoped that the internet people would help to translate these and would come across something incriminating that would retrospectively prove their war justified.

Unfortunately, according to the New York Times, in their haste, they managed to put online information on how to build an atomic bomb.

The government had received earlier warnings about the contents of the Web site. Last spring, after the site began posting old Iraqi documents about chemical weapons, United Nations arms-control officials in New York won the withdrawal of a report that gave information on how to make tabun and sarin, nerve agents that kill by causing respiratory failure.

Good work, guys. The West is saved once again. (Via dKos.)
