And Iran, Iran So Far Away-yay…


So now we hear that Bush met with religious-right bigwig James Dobson to ask him to get his people on board to back Bush's planned attack (and probable invasion) of Iran.

And now David Sanger has a new NYT article apparently designed to assist Bush in pitching his plan.

But here's something that you won't see in the NYT anytime soon — or anyplace in the US Big Media:  

VIENNA, May 11 (Xinhua) — The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Friday said Iran has not hampered the IAEA's inspection of Iran's nuclear facility.

    "The information… is untrue," IAEA spokesman Marc Vidricaire told a press conference when asked about recent reports that last month Tehran refused to give IAEA inspectors access to its Natanz uranium enrichment base.

    "We have not been denied access at any time, including in the past few weeks," he said.

    "Normally we do not comment on such reports but this time we felt we had to clarify the matter," he said.

The whole article's worth reading, but that's the money shot.  Something to think about the next time Ted Koppel (aka discredited Middle East "expert" Kenneth "Threatening Storm" Pollack's father-in-law) appears on your TV screen to tell you why we must bomb Iran.
