America Not Buying NIE

Published by at 11:15 pm under All General Discussions,Iran

Rasmussen has a poll out showing only 18% of the country buys the liberal media spin on the NIE on Iranian nukes (H/T Drudge). Even most liberals don’t buy it!

Just 18% of American voters believe that Iran has halted its nuclear weapons program. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 66% disagree and say Iran has not stopped its nuclear weapons program.

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of liberal voters believe that Iran has stopped its weapons program but 54% disagree.

May be too early to tell if these numbers will hold, but I think they will. One reading of the NIE and you can’t help but note it is self conflicting (centrifuges but no risk of weapons????) and was tainted with a political message on policy – not stating findings. Since the NIE doesn’t claim Iran has definitively stopped its weapons program, and is NOT a consensus finding since some in the IC believe Iran has restarted it, I can understand why people aren’t buying it. Whatever the reason for its creation, one thing is clear: Iran can confirm it right now buy opening up to unlimited international inspections.

As I said in an earlier posts, liberals are now stuck claiming Iran is peaceful and harmless and the true evil and threat to mankind is our President. LOL! If it sounds like something out of the funny farm, well….. No one made them say it.
