Rudy Adviser Podhoretz Accuses CIA of Lying About NIE to Protect Iran

Uncategorized Comments (3)

After a long span of aggressively pushing the Bush administration to bomb Iran because of its alleged nuclear weapons program, Rudy Giuliani’s radical foreign policy adviser Norman Podhoretz has “dark suspicions” that the CIA fabricated the NIE findings to protect Iran from Bush and Giuliani. (via TPM)

I entertain an even darker suspicion. It is that the intelligence community, which has for some years now been leaking material calculated to undermine George W. Bush, is doing it again. This time the purpose is to head off the possibility that the President may order air strikes on the Iranian nuclear installations. As the intelligence community must know, if he were to do so, it would be as a last resort, only after it had become undeniable that neither negotiations nor sanctions could prevent Iran from getting the bomb, and only after being convinced that it was very close to succeeding. How better, then, to stop Bush in his tracks than by telling him and the world that such pressures have already been effective and that keeping them up could well bring about “a halt to Iran’s entire nuclear weapons program”—especially if the negotiations and sanctions were combined with a goodly dose of appeasement or, in the NIE’s own euphemistic formulation, “with opportunities for Iran to achieve its security, prestige, and goals for regional influence in other ways.”
