Iraq Was Within A Year of Having Nuke in 2002

Soooo...The New York Times reports that Saddam Hussein's Iraq did have an active nuclear weapons program after all !

A recent article in the NY Times contained this information:

Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to "leverage the Internet" to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

Among the dozens of documents in English were Iraqi reports written in the 1990s and in 2002 for United Nations inspectors in charge of making sure Iraq had abandoned its unconventional arms programs after the Persian Gulf war.

Experts say that at the time, Mr. Hussein's scientists were on the verge of building an atom bomb, as little as a year away.

Nobody has yet been able to satisfactorily explain to me why it's perfectly fine for the United States to have a nuclear arsenal, but not Iraq or Iran. The following responses will be laughed at,as they are patently false:
-Because Iraq/Iran is run by an evil dictator, and the U.S. is not.
-Because they're going to use them for war, and the U.S. uses them for peace.
-Because Israel is God's chosen country and needs to be protected.
