One day after Mike Bloomberg said he wasn’t an “ex­pert” on the Ir­aq war, he “weighed in” on the Nat’l In­tel­li­gence Es­tim­ate that found Ir­an stopped nuc­le­ar weapons work in ‘03. Bloomberg: “If it turns out they’re not pur­su­ing nuc­le­ar weapons, that’s good. I think the re­port did not say that they have stopped re­fin­ing urani­um and oth­er things that would be use­ful in cre­at­ing nuc­le­ar weapons. I don’t think we should stop wor­ry­ing.”

More Bloomberg on 12/3, ask­ing about Ir­aq war surge re­ports: “Every­body wants the see the con­flict in Ir­aq ended and our troops brought home safely” (Rauh, New York Sun, 12/5).
