To Nuke or Not to Nuke

I find the news most confusing.

The President has labeled the reports that his administration is considering a nuclear attack on Iran as "wild speculation."

Now if this amounts to a denial, considering President Bush's reputation for honesty, it would seem to confirm the reports. On the other hand, considering the President's reputation for authorizing the leaking of classified materials whose contents he knew to be false, one would reasonably believe that the reporsts are false and intended to deceive either the Iranians or the American public--or both.

Somehow I am reminded of Nixon's claim when he was president that he wanted to frighten the Russians by making them think that he was crazy.
