Oh guess what? While the President was suggesting “World War III” if America didn’t go get Iran—turns out it’s another “oops.” US intelligence now says Iran’s been out of the nuclear weapons business for years.
For those who have doubts about miracles, a double one occurred today. An honest National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran’s nuclear program has been issued and its Key Judgments were made public. …
“We judge that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program…
“We assess with moderate confidence Tehran has not restarted its nuclear weapons program as of mid-2007. …
“We do not have sufficient intelligence to judge confidently whether Tehran is willing to maintain the halt of its nuclear weapons program indefinitely…
“We judge with moderate confidence Iran probably would be technically capable of producing enough highly enriched uranium sometime during the 2010-2015 time frame.
“We judge with high confidence that Iran will not be technically capable of producing and reprocessing enough plutonium for a weapon before about 2015.” …
This NIE does not [italics in original] assume that Iran intends to acquire nuclear weapons
Strike two on nuke spooks, Mr. President:
- None in Iraq, Americans believe you, a million perish.
- None in Iran, Americans say “Hold on a minute,” disaster barely averted.
Wow, Mr. President, is this what neo-conservatism means? War, unless the evidence arrives before the bombing begins? Propaganda without facts?
Honestly, who’s the person most likely to get people killed? It’s not Osama; it never was Ahmadinejad. Are you, Mr. President, the most dangerous man in the world?
