    (CNSNews.com) - John Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is one of two Americans who have been nominated for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

    Bolton and Kenneth R. Timmerman were formally nominated by Sweden's former deputy prime minister Per Ahlmark, for playing a major role in exposing Iran's secret plans to develop nuclear weapons. They documented Iran's secret nuclear buildup and revealed Iran's "repeated lying" and false reports to the International Atomic Energy Agency, a press release said.

    Bolton formerly served as U.S. undersecretary for arms control and international security, and he authored the Proliferation Security Initiative, an international effort to block WMD shipments. The effort eventually unmasked the secret nuclear network directed by Pakistan nuclear scientist A. Q. Khan.

    Timmerman, an independent researcher, has written extensively on Iran's nuclear activities for more than 20 years. His report for the Simon Wiesenthal Center in 1992 first detailed Iran's ties to A.Q. Khan. His most recent book, "Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran," was published last year.One of Bolton's Republican critics - Sen. George Voinovich of Ohio -- now says he thinks Bolton is doing a good job.

    what am I wrong on? did I even make a point there? If I had, it would have been that that sounds alot like a fictional news outlet. Much like Jeff Gannons "Talon News" remember Gannon? The gay prostitute that accessed the white house over 100 times for some mysterious, classified meetings with top officials.

    you guys are awfully defensive...lighten up

    Nice try. You yourself KNOW that you, et. al. exhibit a pattern of behaviour oft denying or criticizing the source for news you find unpalatable. Unless of course it's some wacko lefty site posted by NEM.
