But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.

doesn't count

So then explain why this info was bad to have on the site?

The info was found in Iraq in 2003.

FROM NRO:

The antiwar crowd is going to have to argue that the information somehow wasn’t dangerous in the hands of Saddam Hussein, but was dangerous posted on the Internet. It doesn’t work. It can’t be both no threat to America and yet also somehow a threat to America once it’s in the hands of Iran.

Iraq had not yet come up with a design for a workable weapon in 1991. Try again.

"doesn't count"

That's right ... even if Saddam had all the info stashed in secret documents that he could have wheeled out and created a bomb out of in a crash program in 1 year (the experts' estimate) once the sanctions were lifted, it 'doesnt count' because .... well, because!
