Iran is not building nuclear weapons confirmed by US Intelligence

You will almost never see in a major U.S. newspaper the assessment – backed by the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies – that Iran is NOT building nuclear weapons.

Last year, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stood firm, despite severe pressure to paint Iran in more pernicious terms, that Iran is NOT working on a nuclear weapon.

Watching top U.S. intelligence officials present the newest annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment” before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Clapper’s testimony reiterated the conclusions of a formal National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) of November 2007, issued unanimously by all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, including judgments like this:

“We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program; … Tehran’s decision to halt its nuclear weapons program suggests it is less determined to develop nuclear weapons than we have been judging since 2005.”

Sadly, this judgment still comes as news to many of Americans.

According to some reports, 70 percent of Americans believe Iran has a nuclear weapon even despite Secretary Defense Leon Panetta admitting that is false.

America’s mainstream media consistently ignores the official NIE when writing news stories hyping Iran’s nuclear threat. However, if you read the articles very closely you may see references to Iran supposedly working toward the “capacity to build” nuclear weapons, not that Iran is actually working on building a nuclear bomb. –It is so subtle as to be misleading. Most casual readers would simply assume that Iran is building a nuclear bomb.

One Response to “Iran is not building nuclear weapons confirmed by US Intelligence”

  1. I just read that Iran has successfully launched an orbiting satellite. If they can do that they can drop an atomic device anywhere in the world. What is the government waiting for? Let’s have a response. And I don’t mean a verbal one.
