  • Former U.S. Defense Intelligence Chief Savages Iran Nuclear Negotiations as “Wishful Thinking” – David Martosko
    Lt.-Gen. Michael Flynn, who led the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency until last August, told a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Wednesday that trusting Iran’s mullahs to abandon their nuclear ambitions is “wishful thinking.” “Iran has every intention to build a nuclear weapon,” he argued. “It is clear that the nuclear deal is not a permanent fix but merely a placeholder.”
    Flynn insisted: “The notion of ‘snap back’ sanctions is fiction. The Iranian regime is already more economically stable than it was in November of 2013.” He added that international inspectors are slated to only have “‘managed access’ to nuclear facilities, and only with significant prior notification.”  (Daily Mail-UK)
