    The truth is only as dangerous as our dependencies upon lies.

    If the truth about the financial crisis were to get out, the liars would have no place to hide.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Truth is only dangerous to the dishonest in most cases. When it comes to national security some things have to be omitted from the public awareness. Such as the weapons grade yellow cake that was in Saddam's nuke research lab. Its location was known by us before the invasion and we sat on it till May of 2008. The Iraq government then sold it to Canada for conversion to fuel. Bush took the heat and political destruction that came along with keeping quiet so as to make it less likely that the enemy would get their hands on it. This was a very admirable thing to have done. Until May I was frustrated with the continual statements by his administration trying to keep people in the dark about WMD. Now I understand why. If the enemy does not think there is any we are much less likely to have it fall into his hands. All during the war we kept finding various types of WMD but the reports were continually ignored by Bush and most of the press. He had everything he needed for a nuke except the know how. That would have come along in time.
