Just in from the New York Times, the CIA's mouthpiece:



WASHINGTON — Even as the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said in a new report Friday that Iran had accelerated its uranium enrichment program, American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb.


Very interesting read, the CIA and other intelligence agencies are renewing their official statement that there are no sings Iran is trying to produce nuclear weapons. What type of government ignores the professional assessments from their own agencies ? Maybe one that puts foreign interest above their own countries interests ?

Of course. But you're not supposed to say that...

They are going to wipe us all off the map. Even South Dakota (though who knows why).

Very interesting

lots of twists and turns with regards to Iran

lets hope all parties can get round the table and work on damage limitation ..

the middle east has seen enough blood shed ..

was Iran a diversion for Syria? ..i have no idea why Russia and China would block any moves for the united nations to get involved

people are getting slaughtered ...but i guess if they are not American or European then its OK right

Oh my god, now all the shills on ATS are jobless ...


Maybe Ben Fulford isn't all that wrong about the fact that large parts of the US military / intelligence community are actively working against the "cabal".

Absolutely. All this 'Iran has nukes' business is pure propaganda to start WW3.

Don't fall for it. Won't happen.

Good news. Now we can back off and focus on our own problems for a change. (Right).

They have not yet harvested Plutonium from their heavy water reactor at Tehran University is all that implies. It takes about two years for the spent fuel rods to cool before re-processing can occur.

There is a risk with reprocessing of taking too long and then Plutonium 240 will develop rendering it useless.

By 2004 Iran had harvested 600 grams of PU 239 from it's Tehran reactor.

Of course there's no hard evidence.

All there is are speculations by warmongering scum in Washington DC and Tel-Aviv.

I think Syria is a strategical preparation for a strike against Iran. Israel doesn't want an Iran-friendly regime at its doorstep, the Syrians have a huge arsenal of ballistic missiles that they would use against them, should Israel strike Iran. Russia and China have vital business relationships with both Syria and Iran, so it's in their intererst to veto against sanctions that would impact the economy of both countries. Plus they see that it is in the end effect directed against them, to cut them off from resources in the whole region.

There are people over there in the CIA who are good people but the irganization as a whole is a terrorist organization. Perhaps these CIA spooks don't want to be caught and executed in Iran so they are making the case that they do no want to be there

Yep. Seems to me a bunch of people at the CIA are not crazy and are releasing this report to slow down or stop the warmongers...

Good to see there's still good people in there.

This was already covered by the US government, along with the IAEA.

The US has been consistent in regards to Iran and building a bomb - that is has not happened.

The issue has, and still does, remain around the ability to build one. Thats why there is concern over enrichment levels. The ability has always been at the forefront of the issues.

Even the op article states this.

I got a nice warning...well, maybe i deserve it, i was probably going over the line.

So, i will try now, this time only asking, like a simple man :

Why would anyone give credit CIA now, on this matter, and not beleive it on ANY other matter?

There is truth and lies, and CIA does both great.What kind of information is this one : a true one or just a lie?
Its a actual information or a disinformation?

I believe that before give them credit, to remember what CIA is.

wheels within wheels, chess games within chess games.

The CIA loses power when a war is declared. They end up with far fewer black-op dollars once a war turns hot, because Defense Intel takes over.

They remain upset that Afghanistan was "taken" from them by Bush. And then Bin Laden was killed by the seals---more DOD again, instead of spooks.

It's no secret that the CIA hated Bush. The whole Valerie Plame event was a set-up to try and damage his white house. They are the ones that told Bush there were WMD in Iraq in the first place. They let Colin Powell testify in front of the UN with phony intelligence they had written themselves. This was done to embarrass State---ever since 9-11, there was a growing push even during the Clinton years to put CIA under the State Department. Just like there is now a push to put them "under" defense.

This is the CIA way of remaining independent. If anyone takes out Iran now, it cant be US DOD or Israeli Defense Force. Instead, it will have to be a CIA covert op.

More money, more operations for their department.

Office politics with nuclear weapons.

No wonder all the bank employees are bailing, if even the CIA won't endorse the lies that send us into the money making wars...is the Military-Industrial Complex perhaps splitting
Maybe someone, high up has finally found a conscience that can't be over-ridden by an extra inch to his wallet. Surely not

Indeed and they are saying that officially now. The issue is not so much Iran's intention but Iran's capability.

Ok, But wouldn't every country with a nuke plant therefore have the Capability.
Shouldn't we pre-empt strike on those countries as well?
