US intelligence: Iran will be able to build first nuclear bomb by February 2009


www.debka.com

US intelligence’s amended estimate, that Iran will be ready to build its first bomb just one month after the next US president is sworn in, is disclosed by DEBKAfile’s Washington sources as having been relayed as a guideline to the Middle East teams of both presidential candidates, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama.

The information prompted the assertion by Democratic vice presidential nominee Joseph Biden in Seattle Sunday, Oct. 19: “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy.”

DEBKAfile’s military sources cite the new US timeline: By late January, 2009, Iran will have accumulated enough low-grade enriched uranium (up to 5%) for its “break-out” to weapons grade (90%) material within a short time. For this, the Iranians have achieved the necessary technology. In February, they can move on to start building their first nuclear bomb.

Ironically, this is also the timeline suggested for the bankruptcy of the US government (IE February 2009).

Many independent sources (a lot of them threaded here) reported on secret Congressional hearings in March this year in which Senators and Representatives were presented with the grim news of economic crisis by the end of September 2008 and total economic collapse by February 2009.

Not to say these two issues are related but the next chief executive will have a lot on his (or her) plate come February.
