Letter to the Editor
It’s getting to the point where Bush is starting scandals faster than I can write about them. Today’s scandal is that Bush posted detailed plans on how build a nuclear weapon on the Internet. Under political pressure from Republicans Bush posted many documents captured in the Iraq war on the web to help make the case that there was justification for Bush’s war. In those documents were detailed plans to build nuclear weapons from before 1991 when Saddam was our best buddy.
Last night the White House finally shut down the web site after the New York Times asked about complaints from weapons experts that Bush was giving nuclear weapons plans to the terrorists. The weapons experts were shocked by the public disclosures. Bush talks about fighting a war on terrorism yet he gives terrorists the most detailed plans to build an atomic bomb that has ever been published. How could they put nuclear plans on the Internet without knowing that they were there? It looks to me like Republicans are putting the safety of the world at risk for pure political purposes.
