It's go time

The Bush administration posted Iraqi documents in the hopes of bolstering its case against Saddam Hussein.

According to the NY Times article:

Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to "leverage the Internet" to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq's secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.[Italics mine]

This crass political move was designed to demonstrate just how heroic the GOP was in capturing Hussein and just how much safer we are because of it.  These documents were supposed to show just how close things were to being really awful.  Except, here's the problem part of the information posted was essentially instructions on how to build atomic bombs.  That's right, we cannot tell you about any of our secret plans to spy on Americans, cannot release records on anything in the Administration for fear of helping the terrorists.  But it's completely cool to post a DIY Atomic Bomb link.  I wonder if the folks from MAKEblog are working with the Administration to make this feasible. 

In the end I think the only logical conclusion based on previous Bush actions, is to assume that the 101 Keyboard Kommandos are gearing up for their true test, the true reason that all these Conservatives have been jockeying for war from their Dorito stained Aeron chairs--- it's time to invade the Internets.  We already know that the Internets have recently had access to the plans for creating atomic weapons.  The Internets have long harbored conversations between terrorists and MoveOn members. The Internets have been a vehicle for tempting high ranking Republican leaders to try and have sex with young boys. It was bad enough when Trekkie Monster revealed the true use of the Internets (For Porn!). But now the Internets are really more of an Internest filled with terrorists, hedonists and bomb-maker-ists. I believe the course of action is clear. We invade. I suggest that odd groups go left. I also think the President should check on troop levels, and consult with the Generals about whether we have sufficient dots. It's quite possible we need more dots.
