1% Doctrine

Ron Suskind has a new book about the Bush administration, keying on a speech in which Cheney said that if "there is even a 1% chance that a nation could provide nuclear arms to terrorists" then we have a right to act.

Interesting insight into the administration's policy: we can bypass the analysis of the entire intelligence community, or the civil rights of thousands of people, if there is even a small chance we are acting in the national interest. In fact, it is the government's right and duty to do so.
