Bob Scheer on Truthdig rubs in the painful irony of our attitude toward the nuclear ambitions of some other countries on the planet. It seems we can't trust those guys from the "axis of evil" to possess or manage WMDs. Simultaneously, he notes, the only attack upon American territory involving a WMD was carried out by an American--a highly vetted, highly placed and thoroughly trusted American scientist. Never mind the fact that in spite of America's shaming of those who would seek out the most obscene of weaponry, we lead the world in research and development of the things.
