U.S.: Iran Can Build and Deliver Nuclear Weapons – Josh Gerstein

(Daily Alert)

Iran’s ability to make missiles loaded with nuclear warheads now rests primarily on the “political will” of its leaders, rather than any technical constraints, according to the annual U.S. intelligence assessment presented by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.

    “Tehran has made technical progress in a number of areas – including uranium enrichment, nuclear reactors, and ballistic missiles – from which it could draw if it decided to build missile-deliverable nuclear weapons. These technical advancements strengthen our assessment that Iran has the scientific, technical, and industrial capacity to eventually produce nuclear weapons. This makes the central issue its political will to do so.”  (Politico)
