"Here is the 'red line' the Israelis have been demanding: not the act of building a nuclear weapon but evidence 'they are making that attempt.' That is, evidence of their intent to do so, without any corroborating evidence they’ve actually succeeded. The catch is that such an 'assessment' based on fresh intelligence would be just as impossible to check as it was in the run-up to the Iraq war, when US officials assured us Saddam was making the Bomb -- and citing all sorts of completely invented 'intelligence' to back it up. In short, we won’t find out if we were lied into war until well after the war has started -- devastating the region, the world economy, and all hopes for peace." (03/05/12)
