(Washington Post reports)--NEW DELHI, March 2 -- President Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh struck what both leaders called an historic agreement Thursday to provide U.S. nuclear power assistance to India in exchange for new inspections of India's civilian nuclear facilities. The agreement, which requires congressional action, is a major break with prior U.S. policy, which barred nuclear assistance to nations, like India, that have refused to sign the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.Not sure what kind of message the Bush Administration is sending to the "Axis-of-evil" by exporting American nuclear technology to India, but I suspect it will not be a constructive one. Ahhhh, the mind reels.

Free Nukes and everyone gets laid!
Looks like President Bush just inked a deal to share nuclear technology with India.
