Open Thread

I don’t have much to say about this but I didn’t see anywhere to insert it into comments so let’s declare it an open thread; a place to put all those extraneous tidbits of the day that don’t seem to fit anywhere else.

Of course, you know that as swiftly as Obama pushed off any responsibility for the economy that he and the other Democrats in Congress helped cause, he’ll certainly take credit for something else Bush left for the next president to inherit. But don’t expect Bush to get any credit for it. (emphasis mine)

Manhattan district attorney’s office has smashed a sinister plot to smuggle nuclear weapons materials to Iran through unwitting New York banks, the Daily News has learned.

Officials plan to unseal a 118-count indictment Tuesday accusing a Chinese national of setting up a handful of fake companies to hide that he was selling millions of dollars in potential nuclear materials to Tehran.

“This case will cut off a major source of supply to Iran and it shows how they are going ahead full steam to get a nuclear bomb. Long-range missiles they pretty much have already,” a law enforcement source close to the case said.

“We think it is one of the largest suppliers of weapons of mass destruction to Iran.”

It’s going to be interesting to see how the Obama machine spins this in light of his plea for nuclear disarmament, which the Russians rejected.
