The article reports that National Intelligence Director John Negroponte has shut down a website sponsored by the U. S. government because it contained nuclear research documents from pre-Gulf War Iraq. The site also posted such important information as the 1987 Baghdad phonebook and a letter to Saddam Hussein from a woman claiming to be an alien. The site was set up in an attempt to prove that Iraq did in fact have, or was on its way to having, weapons of mass destruction.
