How Did the NEI Miss Iran By So Much?

I seem to recall the Boston Globe and the rest of the Lame Stream Media breathlessly reporting the 2007 National Intelligence Estimate that claimed Iran had stopped nuclear weapons programs in 2003. It was used as a weapon to bludgeon President Bush on his Iran policy.

Now with terrorist sympathizer Muhammad El Baradei out of IAEA, we suddenly learn what we new all along. Iran is moving full steam ahead to put a nuclear warhead on a missile so they can threaten the entire region.

And at the same time, SOS Hillary Clinton announces that military options are "off the table".

Not for Israel they are not.

The big underlying story is why the National Intelligence Estimate missed so badly Iran's capability and intent to continue their nuclear weapons program. Is our intelligence community so badly compromised by either incompetence or political bias that they are willing to put out potentially false and misleading data that could endanger national security?

Someone should be fired if they are still operating in government this way.
