An Iranian exile group claims that Iran bought blueprints for a nuclear bomb and obtained weapons-grade uranium on the black market. This is the same group that brought the secret Natanz facility to the attention of the West. The Washington Post reports that "Powell Says Iran Is Pursuing Bomb" (Hat tip: Carnivorous Conservative). An Alert Reader draws attention to the fact that the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve is at 96% capacity and rising, by order of the President, way back in 2001. Just let the information wash over you . . . it will all come in handy down the road.
