From The Times of Israel:
James Clapper, our Director of National Intelligence delivered a report to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence this week entitled “US Intelligence Worldwide Threat Assessment.” The media has kept the report under wraps – mostly because of the content not because of the sensitive nature of the material.
Clapper admitted that Iran has the technical infrastructure to produce nuclear weapons.
“Tehran has made technical progress in a number of areas — including uranium enrichment, nuclear reactors, and ballistic missiles — from which it could draw if it decided to build missile-deliverable nuclear weapons. These technical advancements strengthen our assessment that Iran has the scientific, technical, and industrial capacity to eventually produce nuclear weapons. This makes the central issue its political will to do so.”
Clapper also claimed that we would find out if such a weapon were made based on the new “transparency” agreed to by the Iranians in Geneva last November. Clapper also towed the Obama administration’s narrative that imposing more sanctions against Iran would be “counterproductive.”
Now the ball is in Israel’s court.
