Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    The courage to tell bold-faced lies.

    From Terrorism News: The Independent seemed to have no trouble reporting what it was IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei said regarding Iran's nuclear programme:

    Although IAEA officials have said it would take at least two years for Natanz to become fully operational, Mr ElBaradei believes that once the facility is up and running, the Iranians could be "a few months" away from a nuclear weapon. "That's why there is the concern of the international community about Iran," he said, "because lots of people feel it could be a dual purpose programme". [emphasis mine]

    Now the version from the Jerusalem Post [read: right-wing newspaper] being hyped on the Drudge Report [read: right-wing rumour site]:

    IAEA chairman Muhammad ElBaradei on Monday confirmed Israel's assessment that Iran is only a few months away from creating an atomic bomb.

    If Teheran indeed resumed its uranium enrichment in other plants, as threatened, it will take it only "a few months" to produce a nuclear bomb, El-Baradei told The Independent.

    Thanks for this, Terrorism News.
