Trust But Verify

TRUST BUT VERIFY….I almost forgot, but Laura Rozen reminded me: “This administration is insane. I have no words.”

That was pretty much my reaction too when I read that Bush has decided to continue supporting an international treaty to ban production of nuclear weapons materials but to oppose provisions for inspections and verification.

Their explanation for this change in stance makes no sense, and they have so far declined to explain anything further. It’s really pretty bizarre.
