Reason Nuclear Weapons Story Dropped Like a Hot Potato from Associated Press Listing

(AP) A United Nations report on nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons lasted such a short time on the Associated Press list of stories due to its critical comments towards the United States. The author of the report, Hans Blix, suggested that U.S. non-support for banning nuclear weapons tests contributes to other countries efforts to seek and test nuclear bomb capabilities.

He suggested the current Bush administration and Congress would not take the recommended action to reduce the threat of nuclear weapons. The Independent Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission submitted their 231 page report to U.N. Sec. General Kofi Annan on June 1, 2006.

The author of this article noted the stories disappearance on Friday June 2, 2006 and wrote about this odd occurrence in his blog that very day.
