Is there a collective amnesia at work here? Both Ha'aretz and The Jerusalem Post itself reported on Feb 9 under the headline "Ahmadinejad: Iran is already a nuclear power" that Ahmadinejad in Cairo proclaimed that Iran already has nuclear capabilities but is not planning to attack Israel, because Tehran’s capabilities are “defensive-oriented.” What is going on? Are we all supposed to have forgotten his statement as if it had never been said? Here is the President of Iran admitting that he has been lying all these years about Iran acquiring the nuclear know-how for peaceful purposes only. So either he lied then, or he is lying now or he lied both then and is lying now. So by simple logic he is a mathematically proven liar. But even if he is a proven liar, shouldn't his statement be at least acknowledged in present and future analyses?
