Olmert's Faux Pas

A while back, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert made a faux pas in Germany when he inadvertently admitted that Israel had nuclear weapons, in violation of Israel's long-standing nuclear ambiguity stance.

This admission brought fire upon Olmert immediately, with many inside Israel calling for his immediate resignation.

It is hard to get past the inherent double-standard concerning US rhetoric about a nuclear-free Middle East when the US's main ally has nukes.

In 1977, a law passed prohibiting the US to give aid to nations that secretly develop nuclear weapons, which means that every cent of US aid since 1977 is illegal by our own laws !

Iraq was supposedly invaded to prevent Hussein from acquiring nuclear weapons, and the same justification will be used against Iran, even though that's not the main concern. And yet the most aggressive nation militarily in the Middle East in modern history has nukes, and could conceivably use them, and you will not find a single member of Congress that openly discusses this issue because of the aforementioned law.
