I think this is the thread where we discussed this previously. I remember being surprised with the 3 year sentence. Quietly dropping it to 1 year when the world stops paying attention seems to be the best solution for the Iraqi government.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I'm actually supprised they droped it - on balance it might work out quite a good deal for him - I doubt he'll want for job offers and opportunities when he gets out.

Cool. Iran has 7k centrifuges now - 3k more then the last IAEA report said they had. Their heavy water reactor in Arak will be finished sometime in the next 2-4 years. Yay.

It's too bad PJ's out for a few days—I'd love to ding him yet again for another wild success of UN-led "containment" via sanctions and political isolation.
