Wasn't President Bush a LIAR for saying this???
What a coincidence this pops up right before the Nuclear Arms Summit (Obama photo op)??!!??!!

"Terrorists including al-Qaeda pose a serious threat to world security as they attempt to obtain atomic weapons material, Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, declared on the eve of a global summit in Washington to prevent a nuclear terror attack."


Marketing 101--they are very good at it.

Actually, the Bush administration was accused of lying when it said Iraq was actively seeking nuclear materials as part of its justification for the invasion. As it turned out, the "evidence" used was a letter that had been discredited as a forgery before the claims were made public. The threat of having Russian nuclear materials and weapons sold to terrorists has been as issue since the collapse of the Soviet Union. A number of efforts were launched under the Clinton administration and continued under the Bush administration. albeit with inadequate funding. Senator Sam Nunn from Georgia was a majorvoice calling for stronger action to secure the thousands of nuclear weapons left with minimal safeguards in Russia. When he left the Senate in 1996, he formed the non-profit Nuclear Threat Initiative with Ted Turner that continues to gather intelligence on these weapons and to broker private deals to improve security controls protecting them.

i think only a fool would NOT consider Al-Quaida a serious threat when it comes to detonating a nuclear device if they ever get their hands on one.

it should be a top priority for this administration and all future administrations to monitor them and do anything necessary to keep them from developing nuclear capability.-Paul

I would remind you that Bush is no longer President. What is pertinent is what is being done in the here and now. Maybe this time we won't look in the wrong place.

What do you mean by "we" ? ;)

Is that the Royal "we"?

The editorial "we"?

The author's "we"?

I doubt it is the inclusive "we" as in you and me.:rolleyes:

That leaves the patronizing "we". Score one for Stan.















We guess. :p

OK genius, here is what I meant.....


Me and my mouse are really impressed that a secular progressive finally understands that Bush is not President anymore.
It's a first on this site.
I'm pretty sure everybody got it but you.
Or, are you just pretending??:D

True, true, Bon, But Wii is a different animal.

I can imagine a huge plasma screen set-up in the Oval Office where the Prez and his advisors vie with one another, in a Wii bowling match, (he won't do well), cash thrown on the floor, the air thick, and the winner gets his pick of the short list. OMG...HC?

Sorry your thread got so GDG'ed up so fast rk. My bad. C'est-La-Vie. ;) JD
