It was just this weekend that I was having a discussion with a gentleman about Iran and he assured me that Iran was years away from a nuclear weapon. He is certainly not alone in this belief and he offered several references. I however feel otherwise and said so. Now we have this news. Is it a wake up call or is it a hoax? You will in coming days hear both as people argue the authenticity of these discovered documents.
I will be updating this post as I get more information.
A smoking-gun document has emerged that indicates Iran is closer than ever to developing a nuclear weapon. Top-secret technical notes leaked from deep within the Iranian nuclear program – and making the rounds of Western intelligence agencies – detail research on a neutron initiator, a device that sets off a nuclear detonation. It is the smoking gun’s trigger.
The timely revelation about Iran’s secret program comes as the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council prepare to discuss possible responses to Iran’s nuclear obstinacy. The case for determined action is growing, and the bill of particulars is long. In addition to Iran’s nuclear program, Tehran is still the world’s largest state sponsor of global terrorism and supplies arms to insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan that are used to kill American troops. Iran has tested a rocket that could be the basis for an intercontinental ballistic missile, and the International Atomic Energy Agency recently confronted Tehran with evidence that Iranian scientists have experimented with an advanced nuclear warhead design. And the human rights nightmare inside the country continues to intensify.
The greatest national security challenge that will face the Obama administration is coming, and Mr. Obama will either shape events or be shaped by them. He said in Oslo that “those who seek peace cannot stand idly by as nations arm themselves for nuclear war.” However, the United States has been standing idle for years, and time is running out. Even the much-criticized 2007 National Intelligence Estimate said Iran would be “technically capable of producing enough [highly enriched uranium] for a weapon sometime during the 2010-2015 time frame.” According to our calendar, that window opens about two weeks from now.
