There's an extraordinary story in the UK Guardian this morning that reveals that the "tip-offs" about Iran's supposed nuclear activities, from the CIA to the IAEA, have proved to be unfounded. "Much of the intelligence on Iran's nuclear facilities provided to UN inspectors by American spy agencies has turned out to be unfounded, according to diplomatic sources in Vienna. The claims, reminiscent of the intelligence fiasco surrounding the Iraq war, coincided with a sharp increase in international tension as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran was defying a UN security council ultimatum to freeze its nuclear programme." http://www.guardian.co.uk/iran/story/0,,2019519,00.html This is what happens when you have an agency that doesn't like to get its smart shirts and suits dirty, relying instead on the study of intercepts in their comfortable offices in Langley.
