The big nuclear lie...again

Last night, Jon Stewart's guest was New York Times chief Washington correspondent, David Sanger, discussing his new book, "The Inheritance - the world Obama confronts and the challenges to American power." One guess what the very first "challenge" he mentioned was - "The Iranians are building nuclear weapons" (that's a direct quote from Sanger, and, as with every other newsperson, real or fake, no challenge to that assertion was forthcoming from Stewart).

Not "working on a nuclear program". Not "potentially developing a nuclear weapon." No, "building nuclear weapons." What will it take to drive a stake through the heart of this lie that will not die?

Not to be forgotten is that both the new President and the new Secretary of State have fully embraced this lie, even after the release of the National Intelligence Estimate which stated that no such program exists.
