Or, is Chimp back lying agin? According to sources via The Guardian, oh yeah baby...

Remember all that fab intel about Iraq? And we learned it was all made up? And now, Chimpy's at it agin about Iran being all mean and all...

The claims, reminiscent of the intelligence fiasco surrounding the Iraq war, coincided with a sharp increase in international tension as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran was defying a UN security council ultimatum to freeze its nuclear programme.

That report, delivered to the security council by the IAEA director general, Mohamed ElBaradei, sets the stage for a fierce international debate on the imposition of stricter sanctions on Iran, and raises the possibility that the US might resort to military action against Iranian nuclear sites.

No! You don't say??

"Most of it has turned out to be incorrect," said a diplomat at the IAEA with detailed knowledge of the agency's investigations. "They gave us a paper with a list of sites. [The inspectors] did some follow-up, they went to some military sites, but there was no sign of [banned nuclear] activities."

Um, didn't old Hans Blix say that a time back about Iraq and Chimpy's claims that Saddam was building hisself a Death Star? Or something like that?

Shucks, it ain't gonna matter none! Why ole Chimpy's going in anyhoo! You betcha, lies and all!!
