Now Admiral McConnell:Reversing NIE on Iran
Reversing NIE on Iran
Now Admiral McConnell is clearly trying to repair the damage, even if he can’t say so directly, reports the WSJ of remarks made by the Director of National Intelligence to the Senate Intelligence Committee: “I think I would change the way that we described [the] nuclear program,” he admitted to Evan Bayh (D., Ind.) during the hearing, adding that weapon design and weaponization were “the least significant portion” of a nuclear weapons program. Read more of the coverage of McConnell’s testimony before the senate committee, which the WSJ describes as amounting to a reversal of the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) of last December.
Expect resignation after he reverses the Iranian NIE.
