WEBSITE CONTAINING NUCLEAR SECRETS CLOSED -- REPLACED WITH U2'S 'HOW TO DISMANTLE AN ATOMIC BOMB'

Reprinted from The Satirical Political Report -- http://satiricalpolitical.com/

Castigated by the international community for its website disclosures that could aid terrorists in building nuclear weapons, the Bush Administration has proposed a unique remedy: replacing that posting with the successful U2 album, 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.'

The move was seen as an attempt to placate international institutions such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which are responsible for controlling nuclear proliferation. In addition, some saw the proposal as a cynical ploy to curry favor with Bono, U2's lead singer, who has become synonymous with the UN's world-wide poverty initiatives.

Moreover, in light of the sheer stupidity that led to the dangerous disclosures in the first place -- a "Hail Mary" play by GOP politicians to "find" evidence of Iraqi WMD -- Democrats have proposed that another U2 classic be posted: 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.'

Un-dead-ing a beaten horse? Bono at the Nat'l Prayer Breakfast

Profuse apologies if this was already blogged here (or at dKos' religion thingy, which I don't really keep track of); I did a quick search and didn't find anything, but searching non-legal databases is not my expertise.

I have no desire to beat a dead horse.  I actually think the constant, perennial cries for "values talk" and "the Left learning how to talk about Religion." I think that Liberation Theology is a better guide, not framing politics in religion, but vice versa (not in a blasphemous way, though Pope Benedict apparently believes Liberation Theology is a bit blasphemous, but in the way that as a philosophy, religion IS political).

In fact, I'm not even "religious," whatever that means.  But enough disclaimers from me.  I came across Bono's speech at the Nat'l Prayer Breakfast (here: http://www.sojo.net/index.cfm?action=soj omail.display&issue=060203&cooki es_enabled=false#3) that took place earlier this month.  It was really good.

Excerpts below.
