So Much For That NIE Fearmongering

By Cernig

The UN Security Council voted 14-0 to extend and increase sanctions on Iran over it's nuclear program, based largely on emerging tidbits from the Laptop Of Doom provided to U.S. intelligence by the MeK terror group.

But as Eric Martin points out, no matter how one may feel about that UN decision, it's worth noting that the last NIE on Iran, the one that deflated the warhype to the point where an attack seemed out of the question and therefore according to the neocons was going to make it impossible to get the UNSC to back further sanctions...well...seems to have had the opposite effect.

Score one for the rapier instead of the sabre. And the neocons were wrong again.
