    If Iran supposedly has announced plans to attack Israel, Ms. Bachman better come up with the exact citation.

    Only America, Israel’s overly fearful leaders, and now Cameron of England are afraid that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon with which it will hit Israel. We/they are using the new IAEA report –the one that, according to Seymour Hersh, is the result not of actual inspections but of old intelligence from 2004 and prior received from different countries. Its author is a scientist, but not a nuclear scientist, who has stated that he is “with” the U.S. all the way.

    We are watching the “WMD” phase of the neocon dream-come-to-life of attacking Iran just as we did Iraq. I hope Americans will begin to pay attention soon — especially to Hillary Clinton, the president, and (except for Ron Paul) every Republican candidate. They and others seem to have swallowed this WMD whole and without question.

    Michele seems to be getting her foreign-policy info from little snippets here and there. I guess this is a bit better than getting her vaccine info form ladies at the Piggly-Wiggly, but not a lot better The “too nuclear to fail” sound-bite not original, it is from a recent story in “The Atlantic”. The snippet about “terrorist attacks on nuclear sites” is just plain wrong, as is the bit about Israel’s number of missiles. Nt a good record for accuracy for someone on an intelligence committee.
