The Fantasy of an Iranian Bomb

Seymour Hersh:

The Biden administration made it plain after taking office, an informed official told me, that it has little interest in NIE[National Intelligence Estimate]s, which are prepared by CIA experts who consult with many of the best scholars in the areas being studied. For example, the final document in the 2012 study of the nuclear capability of Iran was reviewed and evaluated by an esteemed scholar teaching at a major American university who, when he and I spoke privately, vouched for the integrity of the report.

There has been no known NIE dealing with the current war in Ukraine, the on-going Israeli war in Gaza, or the consequences of an oft-threatened Israeli assault on Iran.
