American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb.
Recent assessments by American spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program years earlier, according to current and former American officials. The officials said that assessment was largely reaffirmed in a 2010 National Intelligence Estimate, and that it remains the consensus view of America’s 16 intelligence agencies.
At the center of the debate is the murky question of the ultimate ambitions of the leaders in Tehran. There is no dispute among American, Israeli and European intelligence officials that Iran has been enriching nuclear fuel and developing some necessary infrastructure to become a nuclear power. But the Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies believe that Iran has yet to decide whether to resume a parallel program to design a nuclear warhead — a program they believe was essentially halted in 2003 and which would be necessary for Iran to build a nuclear bomb. Iranian officials maintain that their nuclear program is for civilian purposes.YEAH SURE.
THIS IDIOTIC ANALYSIS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE SAME FOLKS WHO TOTALLY MISSED THE FACT THAT:
- THE USSR WAS COLLAPSING AND
- BOTH OF THE WTC ATTACKS (1993 AND 9/11/01) AND
- THE USS COLE BOMBING AND
- THE MARINE BARRACKS ATTACK IN BEIRUT AND
- THE KHOBAR TOWERS ATTACK, AND SO ON...
THE ONLY REASON IRAN HAD AND HAS FOR LYING ABOUT THEIR NUKE PROGRAM - AND FOR DESIGNING IT TO BE SECRET AND UNDERGROUND - IS TO PURSUE A BOMB PROGRAM.
THE ONLY WAY IRAN HAS STOPPED PURSUING A BOMB IS IF THEY FEEL THEY CAN BUY, OR HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT, BOMBS FROM PAKISTAN AND/OR NORTH KOREA, AND PLAN TO TEST ONE UNDERGROUND AND CREDIBLY PASS IT OFF AS ONE OF THEIR OWN, (AND CLAIM THEY HAVE MORE), THEREBY GAINING DETERRENCE AND IMMUNITY FROM AN EXTERNAL ATTACK.
THIS DISINFORMATION IS BEING PROMOTED BY THE CIA AND THE LEGACY MEDIA IN ORDER TO PRESSURE ON ISRAEL TO DELAY AN ATTACK, AND - JUST AS IMPORTANTLY FOR THE BUREAUCRATS AT THESE AGENCIES - GIVE THEM COVER AFTER THE ATTACK.
