Barack Obama “recently received a new National Intelligence Estimate report on
the Iranian nuclear program, which shares Israel's view that Iran has made
surprising, significant progress toward military nuclear capability.”
This NIE report on Iran was supposed to have been
submitted to Obama a few weeks ago, but it was revised to include new and
alarming intelligence information about military components of Iran's nuclear
program. Haaretz has learned that the report's conclusions are quite similar to
those drawn by Israel's intelligence community.
The NIE report contends that Iran has made surprising,
notable progress in the research and development of key components of its
military nuclear program.
