Project Sudan? (tip to ExpatYank)

An international news story this week, little heard in the US, told of how America had secretly tested nukes in Sudan in the 1960s. Sudanese officials demanded the US explain itself. The Chinese news picked up the story, as well as Al Jazeera. The Sudanese government representatives went on TV blaming the US for the spread of cancer resulting from the tests of so-called Project Sudan.

Unfortunately, there was no Project Sudan. The transcript of a speech mistakenly turned Project Sedan, a two- or four-door automobile having a front and rear seat, into Project Sudan, a hideously barbaric African country where slavery, famine and genocide are used by the Islamist government in civil warfare.

Whoops.
