Greg Palast on how George Bush gave North Korea "the bomb"

Shocking story over at gregpalast.com about how the United States turned its head and let Pakistan give North Korea all the plans and raw materials for making an atomic weapon. Why did the US turn its head?

Because the money that paid for the research and transfer of the nuclear property led directly to Saudi Arabia.

If there's one thing we don't do, it's question the Saudis. They're so forthright and honest, not to mention of the highest integrity. It doesn't matter that 16 of the 19 hijackers on September 11, 2001, were Saudis. It also doesn't matter that they control the price and production of oil, something near and dear to the hearts of the leaders of the world, Bush & Cheney.
