Iraq offers tours of Nuclear Potemkin village

After our website posted images of the Tuwaitha Nuclear Center, the Iraqi foreign ministry held a press conference at which Saeed Hassan Al Mousawi used an image of Tuwaitha downloaded from, to try to demonstrate that the facility in question had no military or WMD capability. Iraqi officials then took western journalists on a carefully orchestrated field trip to a small portion of the facility in question.
