The Bush administration has decided to reverse longs standing US policy and oppose the inspections component of the treaty to ban nuclear weapons components.

They claim to still support the treaty, but feel the inspections process would be "too expensive, too invasive, and ineffective".

WTF? The nightmare scenario is terrorists with nukes. I can't think of a more important policy than doing everything humanly possible to support the nonproliferation of weapons and putting tight controls on what's already out there.

This means Pakistan, India, China, North Korea, et al can claim to be abiding by the terms of the treaty while they stockpile weapons.

Why? It doesn't make sense politically, strategically, or practically. I am really at a loss.

Anybody have any ideas about why they've chosen this path?
