"Rock Solid" is the new "Slam Dunk" -- Israel, Bush and Iran

Just a reminder:

About two weeks before deciding to invade Iraq, President Bush was told by CIA Director George Tenet there was a "slam dunk case" that dictator Saddam Hussein had unconventional weapons, according to a new book by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward.

[Emphasis mine.]

Now back to the present, where we find this:

ISRAELI security officials are to brief President George W Bush on their latest intelligence about Iran’s nuclear programme - and how it could be destroyed - when he begins a tour of the Middle East in Jerusalem this week.

[...snip...]

Israeli intelligence is understood to agree that the project was halted around the time of America’s invasion of Iraq, but has “rock solid” information that it has since started up again.

            -- From Times Online

[Emphasis mine.]

"Rock Solid" must be the Israeli term for "Slam Dunk" this year.

With two failing military engagements already on the books and just one short year left to his Presidency, it boggles the mind that George W. Bush -- the worst, most deceitful and most dangerous President in US history -- is still pushing to find a reason to justify a strike on Iran.

Or, at least, it would boggle the mind, if one hadn't realized for a long time now that Bush had always intended to strike both Iraq and Iran, well before 9/11 ever occurred.

Congress now has several different facets pushing for the impeachment of both Bush and Cheney. Just recently, George McGovern added his vote for impeachment.

Congress needs to step up and stop this runaway criminal Administration, before the next and newest set of military strikes get underway.

the Israelis could or would just keep Bush? I'm all for letting them have him.

I wonder how a national vote would turn out...

I think I got the title right. It's about the boy who is kidnapped and his parents refuse to take him back, far less pay ransom money!

I'd pay ransom to help start that fund up!

I love it!

Great catch, Carol.
