Misha said "Seems like the Iranians have sympathizers in the US. Who are these unnamed "senior US intelligence officials"? This is pure propaganda, don`t believe a word of it." If what you said is true, that would mean that George Bush, and Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell would be the "Iranian Sympathizers" you are talking about. The original source material for this news report is an official press release from the United States Office of National Intelligence. For it to be released as an official DNI press release, it has to get Presidential approval. The DNI is the office in charge of US intel organizations, such as the CIA, etc... goto the Department of National Intelligence (dni) official .gov website and follow the link on the home page to the "National Intelligence Estimate Key Judgments: Iran: Nuclear Intentions and Capabilities". This isn't the work of Iranian Sympathizers. This is the work of Republicans loyal to President Bush.
