Bill Clinton Gave Iran Nuclear Blueprints

According to reports and a New York Times reporter, Bill Clinton authorized the CIA to give nuclear bomb blueprints to the Iranian regime. Last night, radio talk show host and former US Justice Department official Mark Levin shocked many listeners when he reported that President Bill Clinton gave nuclear technology to the Iranians in a harebrained scheme. He said that the transfer of classified data to Iran was personally approved by then-President Clinton and that the CIA deliberately gave Iranian physicists blueprints for part of a nuclear bomb that likely helped Tehran advance its nuclear weapons development program.

The CIA, using a double-agent Russian scientist, handed a blueprint for a nuclear bomb to Iran, according to a new book "State of War" by James Risen, the New York Times reporter, who exposed the Bush administration's controversial NSA spying operation, claims the plans contained fatal flaws designed to derail Tehran's nuclear drive.

But the deliberate errors were so rudimentary they would have been easily fixed by sophisticated Russian nuclear scientists, the book said. The operation, which took place during the Clinton administration in early 2000, was code named Operation Merlin and "may have been one of the most reckless operations in the modern history of the CIA," according to Risen.

This story has been kept under wraps by many in the media, in fact, it has gone unreported. However, the other revelation of the NY Times reporter who wrote this book, was his exposing of the NSA’s terrorist surveillance program. Now, the media jumped all over that story and created an unnecessary controversy that continues today. So, one might ask why the allegation that the CIA, with the authority of Bill Clinton, assisted Iran in its quest to build nuclear weapons has yet to be blown out of proportion? Which is more important, a President recklessly advancing Iran’s nuclear prospect or George Bush tracking suspected terrorists by legally bypassing the FISA Court? If you ask me and most people, giving nuclear technology to Iran is a far more important story than tracking suspected terrorists…well, at least if your agenda is simply reporting on the news not pushing anti-Bush rhetoric. Two stories in the same book; and the one that gets picked up is the non-story about tracking terrorists…WTF!

The New York Times reporter James Risen calls this, “one of the most reckless operations in modern history” and the damn press ignored it. What was Bill Clinton thinking if he even was thinking? Let’s put this in perspective shall we. Clinton believed North Korea’s promise to suspend their weapons technology which led to North Korea creating at least two or three nuclear bombs. And before that, Mr. Clinton refused to extradite a Muslim man by the name of Osama Bin Laden which led to the attacks of 9/11. Now it comes out that Billy Boy thought providing Iran with nuclear blueprints was a good idea.

Sometimes, I think the idea of a vast left-wing media is somewhat overblown even though I know it exists on some levels. But when the press, in their misguided love for the Clintons, refuses to point out huge stories and willingly hypes non-stories to attack President Bush, well then one can’t argue with reality. The whiny left is busy complaining about this and that…why don’t they complain about the massive failure known as the 42 president of the United States. His failures led to 9/11 which led to Iraq. His idiocy helped Iran with its nuclear weapons program and his gullibility led to N. Korea acquiring nuclear weapons. WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE!?!
