Stephen Coonts' Journal

with one comment

A recent article in Newsweek magazine by Mark Hosenball stated that the CIA is about to issue a new assessment of Iran’s nuclear program.  This assessment, according to Newsweek, will say that Iran has “resumed research on nuclear weapons–theoretical work on how to design and construct a weapon–but Tehran is not engaged in development–actually trying to build a weapon.”   Never mind that the Israeli Mossad, Germany’s BND and Britain’s MI-6 all think Iran is “pursuing” a nuclear weapon.

The article also points out that the Obama administration’s cautious policy on Iran is unlikely to change.  Sigh.  Washington is in a dither over a 41st Republican senator; the prospect of Islamic Nazis armed with nukes is way down on their priority list.

  1. I’ve grown to feel the CIA is pretty much useless after hearing more about the “Christmas Day” bomber, how much intel was available beforehand and wasn’t passed on and how they were watching a different Nigerian on the plane. My bet is on Israeli Intelligence and what they find.
