Iraqi scientist: Nuclear bomb was 3 years away

MSNBC's Misleading headline of the day...the statement might have been true prior to 1991.

The REAL pull quote: "The scientists presented their paper Monday to the conference, declaring that most Iraqi nuclear facilities were damaged or destroyed in the 1991 U.S.-led Gulf war. They said scientists, engineers and technicians involved in the program dispersed after the war and the program was dismantled on Saddam’s orders." [emphasis mine]

Yep, the man was really trying to build a bomb and attack the U.K. and the U.S. Uh-huh.
