Shhh!!

No can do. It's a secret. AP (12.11.07):
"President Bush on Tuesday called on Iran to explain why it had a secretive nuclear weapons program, and warned that any such efforts must not be allowed to flourish 'for the sake of world peace.'

'Iran is dangerous,' Bush said after an Oval Office meeting with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano. 'We believe Iran had a secret military weapons program, and Iran must explain to the world why they had a program.'"

Bush Demands Iran Explain Nuke Program

We'd love to tell you, but we just can't. You understand, right George? AP (11.26.07):
"In federal courts and on Capitol Hill, challenges are brewing to a key legal strategy President Bush is using to protect a secret surveillance program that monitors phone calls and e-mails inside the United States.

Under grilling from lawmakers and attack by lawsuits alleging Bush authorized the illegal wiretapping of Americans, the White House has invoked a legal defense known as the 'state secrets' doctrine — a claim that the president has inherent and unchecked power to shield national security information from disclosure, either to plaintiffs in court or to congressional overseers."
