The Iranian nuclear lie gets bigger

We've heard the U.S. accusing Iran of developing nuclear weapons, and heard them accusing Iran of "threatening" Israel. Now (with a hearty hat tip to WIIIAI), we have not one but two new interviews in which George Bush doubles down on those false claims:

First up: "They've declared they want to have a nuclear weapon to destroy people -- some in the Middle East." [And the rest...where?]

Two hours later: "...the government's decisions on foreign policy matters -- such as announcing they want to destroy countries with a nuclear weapon."

These being U.S.-government sponsored "news agencies" (VOA Persian News Network and Radio Farda, respectively), the interviewers didn't see fit to ask for actual, you know, evidence of these preposterous claims. Not that I think most of the reporters at a regular Presidential press conference (Helen Thomas excepted) would have done any better.
