Well, isn’t this interesting. Dennis Blair, Obamas own Director of National Intelligence seems to be contradicting his boss, the President. As you recall, Obama, Panetta and Clinton are going around spouting off their mouths about how Iran is definitely in hot pursuit of a nuclear weapons program… in spite of the 2007 NIE which states that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 (of course I have seen no credible evidence to suggest that they ever had a nuclear weapons program in the first place, but that’s for another post).
The AFP writes:
US intelligence does not know whether Iran intends to develop nuclear weapons, but at a minimum Tehran is keeping that option open, the new US intelligence director said.
Retired admiral Dennis Blair said US intelligence assesses that Iran has not restarted nuclear weapons design and weaponization work that it halted in late 2003.
Don’t you love it when someone on the team doesn’t get the memo about the official propaganda line that needs to be repeated in order to fix the intelligence to fit the policy?
