"U.S. and European counterproliferation experts believe that Iran's centrifuge program has already produced enough low-enriched uranium, an essential precursor to the production of bomb-grade material, to provide feedstock to produce enough highly enriched uranium to make a bomb. However, that is an arduous and technically complicated process. Many U.S. and European experts say that Iran is still experiencing technical problems with centrifuges it would use to produce bomb-grade uranium, which could delay any Iranian bomb program for years.
An Obama administration official says that top policymakers are being told that there is no significant disagreement among U.S. intelligence agencies and experts about the latest assessments regarding Iran's nuclear effort. That may encourage the White House's efforts to continue to try to engage Iran in diplomatic dialogue, including discussion of Iran's nuclear ambitions." Newsweek
Dan Rather, the prize asset of HDtv, was on the Joe and Mika show today pushing his new "special" on the subject of Iran. When asked the right programmed question, Rather solemnly pronounced that he has reached the conclusion that Iran is proceeding methodically toward deliverable nuclear weapons and opined that they could assemble a weapon "any time." He said that he had been talking to "some people" who had convinced him that this is the truth.
Who are these people to whom he spoke? Did the owner of HDtv get him this access to these sources of information? Are they American? What does David Albright have to say about this? What does Kyran Mish have to say about it?
It should be no secret now that a massive political warfare campaign is underway that is intended to push the United States into war with Iran.
The truth matters, not the truthiness of Rather's production concerning Iran's capabilities and intentions, but the actual truth. pl
