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.
