It's interesting to know that even with two top U.S. intelligence officials saying Iran is far from a nuke, the mainstream media in the U.S is still able to make Americans think there's reason to believe otherwise.
In testimony before Congress on Tuesday, the officials - Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Maples - said Iran does not have any highly enriched uranium, the fuel used to power a nuclear warhead.
Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair also defended Charles (Chas) Freeman who was slated to be picked as the new chairman of the National Intelligence Council, but withdrew his candidacy for the post on Tuesday after criticism for not "anti-semitism", but "anti-Israel" views. http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1070041.html
"I think I can do a better job if I'm getting strong analytical viewpoints to sort out and pass on to you and to the president than if I am getting pre-cooked pablum judgments that don't really challenge," Blair told the Senate Armed Services Committee earlier on Tuesday.([b][color=red]But specifically he was replying to that scoundrel Lieberman[/color][/b]):http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2009/03/blair-defends-c.html
Amazing! We can't even nominate an intelligence official without him being pro-Israel!
