    Default Bush = Inspector Clouseau? Iranian President In Trouble After NIE Report Fallout

    So now Iranian President Ahmadinejad is on Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's shit list and his power base has begun to crumble.

    :http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/01/...ica/tehran.php

    There are numerous possible reasons for Ahmadinejad's loss of support, but analysts here all point to one overriding factor: the U.S. National Intelligence Report last month, which said that Iran suspended its nuclear weapons program in 2003 in response to international pressure. The report sharply decreased the threat of a military strike against Iran, allowing the authorities to focus on domestic issues, with important parliamentary elections looming in March.

    "Now that Iran is not under the threat of a military attack, all contradictions within the establishment are surfacing," said Saeed Leylaz, an economic and political analyst. "The biggest mistake that Americans have constantly made toward Iran was adopting radical approaches, which provided the ground for radicals in the country to take control."
    What was seen as a colossal mistake by political experts by the Bush White House when they release the National Intelligence Estimate, the one that said Iran abandoned their nuclear weapons progam in 2003, now seems to have taken the legs out from under his Iranian counterpart.

    Tee hee.

    You have to wonder if it was a calculated attempt by the State Department to undermine him. The political heat you get is nothing if the ME dynamics are changed. It might be just the kind of move a President with nothing left to prove/lose would do?

    On the other hand, our intelligence community could have been waaay off, which has never happened before

    Either way, I got a chuckle out of the Inspector Clouseau bit.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    and, now... so much for that...

    Bush calls Iran 'threat to world peace'
    The war of words between United States and Tehran continued today, with President Bush repeating his assertion that Iran is "a threat to world peace." The two countries have been trading barbs since a weekend incident in the Strait of Hormuz. The Pentagon released video of the exchange showing small Iranian boats swarming around U.S. warships.
