Captain Ed is vexed:
Ahmadinejad’s request has nothing to do with analyzing the package; he simply wants to stall as long as possible. August 22nd comes exactly two months from tomorrow, contradicting Bush’s insistence on “weeks, not months” for a substantive response. It’s so silly and childish that one wonders what else of significance might happen in the nine weeks between now and his proposed deadline. Could the Iranians be that close to starting a massive cascade of centrifuges that could produce weapons-grade uranium by that date?
