US airstrikes unlikely to hurt Iran

August 13, 2008

As was reported on the excellent national security related blog a new study by the Institute of Science and National Security has concluded that US air-strikes against Iranian nuclear enrichment facilities are unlikely to achieve their aim of hindering Iranian development of nuclear weapons.

U.S. and other intelligence agencies appear to have only partial information about Iran’s centrifuge complex and its ability to reconstitute its program following an attack….

Considering the modular, replicable nature of centrifuge plants, we conclude that an attack on Iran’s nuclear program is unlikely to significantly degrade Iran’s ability to reconstitute its gas centrifuge program.

So not only does the US have no proper plan for action in Afghanistan and Pakistan it seems the crappy intelligence agencies are unable to even determine where Iran is enriching its uranium. Political Blogger Alliance
