    After the Associated Press released an extremely misleading article explaining how a particular graph proved that Iran was building a nuclear weapon, scientists at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and journalists at AntiWar.com did the AP's job for them by  pointing out that the graph says nothing of the sort, and that most government agencies agree that Iran abandoned its weapons program in 2003.

    I really find it astonishing that usually dependable people on both the left and right are fooled by this notion again, considering what happened with Iraq.

      I find it unbelievable too, but unfortunately they are. I don't think it's always a case of people being fooled, but only believing what they want to believe, irrespective of the facts of the matter.
