The latest National Intelligence Estimate on Iran (2007) states that Iran halted its program to develop nuclear weapons. However, where's the proof it ever had such a program?
The 2007 National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran is a tricky maneuver by the neocons to make the U.S. intelligence community appear to the public as being much more reasonable and cautious and deserving of trust than earlier. It is a much more subtle approach that is still designed to maneuver the U.S. into a position of attacking Iran.
The NIE is designed to give the U.S. and Bush administration more psychological cover for attacking Iran later after cloak and dagger operations get to a critical point.
The most important thing to see is that the U.S. is accusing Iran of having had an up-and-running nuclear weapons program even though the U.S. has no proof of any such program. This is a perception-management, psy-ops move on the part of the U.S. People will be relieved that the Iranians stopped a program in 2003, but the U.S. has then herded the masses into thinking that Iran had such a program. This thinking will then be used later when the U.S. says it has evidence that has been recently discovered that Iran really didn't stop its program but just drove it deeper underground. The people are being set up to later more readily go along with military attacks on Iran. It is part of the wearing down process by the powers that be.
The people are given so much garbage to consider that they, the people, just become tired of it all and then acquiesce under the attitude that they, the people, can't stop or control those powers that be. Of course, it isn't true that they can't stop or control the situation.
The people can just stop choosing bad leaders. It's that simple. Just start following those who follow Jesus's real lead.
