Well, NewsMax brings it up. I don’t think it is inconceivable actually. The newest National Intelligence Estimate totally reverses what they had said about Iran only TWO years ago.
The ranking Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Pete Hoekstra, is “profoundly disappointed” with the way the intelligence community has handled the latest National Intelligence Estimate on Iran, and says he is “not convinced” of their conclusion that Iran stopped its nuclear weapons program in late 2003.
“While the intelligence may have gotten better, it hasn’t improved to the point where we can make this kind of definitive statement, that Iran has stopped their weapons program,” he told Newsmax in an exclusive interview on Thursday.
“The intelligence community has proven over past five to seven years that they can’t get analysis right. They can’t build satellites. They can’t keep a secret. And now they expect us to say, great work? This is dead nuts!” he said.
The C.I.A has been upset with the President since most of the failures that led to 9/11 was put on them. And, of course, as we all know, there is a strong “good ole boys” network in the C.I.A that goes back decades to its conception by “Wild” Bill Donavon after World War 2, that skews their intelligence for political reasons.
Republicans are wondering how the intelligence community could reverse itself so thoroughly from its 2005 estimate, and suspect that “shadow warriors” opposed to the president are skewing the intelligence for political ends.
“This is CIA pay-back to the president for having made them, not FBI, take the rap for the failures that led up to 9/11,” one well-informed source told Newsmax.
