“Many states, including Florida, are switching from paper ballots to high-tech, ATM-like electronic voting machines. With the increasing use of the new machines, there is mounting evidence suggesting that touch-screen machines present a far graver threat to the integrity of America's elections.

So the US and the Saudis claim to have credible evidence that those Weapons of Oil Destruction came from Iran, their current bogey now that Saddam Hussein is no longer available.
