Check out this entry from missile defense expert Baker Spring on the Heritage Foundation the Foundry. It builds on an article I wrote earlier on a German intelligence estimate that said Iran may be only 6 months away from developing a nuclear weapon.
As Mr. Spring points out, this information alone could refute the 2007 National Intelligence Estimate that said Iran had halted its program in 2003. The sources say that following a strategic decision by Iran’s leaders, they could have a nuclear weapon in as little as 6 months. At the very least, Mr. Spring says we hedge our bets and err on the side of caution and continue building missile defenses.
