cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is set to leave for a round of visits abroad this week, after recently returning from Africa, South America, and the Balkans.

This time Lieberman will visit Austria, Kazakhstan, Holland, and Denmark, mainly in order to discuss the topic of Iran.

Lieberman says he wants to "invest effort in nations that have not received attention from Israel until now".

The foreign minister is also scheduled to meet with his French counterpart, Bernard Kouchner, following the latter's request. Lieberman has clarified that the object of this meeting, as well as those in Holland and Denmark, is "to bolster Israel's status by widening the wingspan of its foreign policy".

Lieberman will also meet with Israeli ambassadors to Britain, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, as well as the ambassador to the EU.

Napolitano says al qaeda style terrorists are in US

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said law-enforcement authorities are tracking terrorists with al-Qaeda leanings in the U.S.

“It is fair to say there are individuals in the United States who ascribe to al-Qaeda-type beliefs,” Napolitano said in an interview with Bloomberg Television today. “And so it makes information-sharing, it makes effective law enforcement and it makes the shared responsibility of law enforcement ever so important.”

[Hey hey could it be any vaguer and more subjective??? We don't like your "style." We don't like your "type" of belief. You must be a terrorist. - ed.]

Information-sharing between federal, state and local law- enforcement agencies is “much improved” since the Sept. 11 attacks, she said.

...The threat of attack “is always with us,” Napolitano said today. Benchmark stock indexes trimmed gains after her comments.

...The secretary said she met today with financial institutions on threats to computer systems.


“The financial institutions of this country are part of our bedrock infrastructure,” she said. “They need to be protected. We need to be able to protect them.”

They discussed companies’ needs, barriers they are confronting and international threats, she said. Napolitano declined to name the people she met with, saying she didn’t have a list.

The U.S. is concerned about the use of computer systems to commit fraud or interfere with infrastructure, she said.

...On another issue, Napolitano said she expected many U.S. residents to be vaccinated against the swine flu, also known as H1N1, once the vaccine becomes widely available.


The H1NI vaccine “is a very safe vaccine,” Napolitano said. “We can prevent a lot of illness and perhaps death, the more people we can vaccinate.”

The secretary said she’s concerned about polls that show many Americans won’t be getting a swine flu shot.

“This is something where getting the vaccine is so much the better” than not, she said. “We need to keep pumping out that information.”
