As an indication of how pervasive Israeli agitprop and perception management has become, I offer the following:
On the Newshour tonight there was a talking heads discussion between David Ignatius and David Makovsky the AIPAC/WiINEP person. The moderator was Ray Suarez.
Throughout this "contest" the assumption underlying the discussion was that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. This was clear in what both Makovsky and Ignatius said.
To make the matter worse, Suarez said at one point:
"RAY SUAREZ: Before we close, I would like to hear from both of you about the cost-benefit analysis being made on both sides.
If you only slow down and don't stop the Iranian program, but unleash military strikes, could the possibilities for Iranian retaliation, for destabilization in the region be so severe, that the blowback is worse than what you accomplish with the attack?"
Ray, it is the position of the US governemnt that Iran DOES NOT have a nuclear weapons program and has not had one since 2003 That is our offical position, expressed in numerous documents of the IC as late as this week in Clapper's statement to the senate.
The administration has not repudiated any of these Intelligence Community joint opinions. The acceptance of those judgement is why we are not presently bombing Iran.
