“New intelligence information obtained by Israel and four Western countries indicates that Iran has made greater progress on developing components for its nuclear weapons program than the West had previously realized, according to Western diplomats and Israeli officials who are closely involved in efforts to prevent Iran from building a nuclear bomb.
“A Western diplomat who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to discuss intelligence information said the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Israel agree on that assessment.”
Mitt and the GOP have faulted Obama for not being tough enough on Iran’s nuclear quest. If something happens militarily before the election, they won’t be able to criticize him without looking hypocritical and wimpy. Hypocritical doesn’t faze them, hypocritical is GOP default mode, but they can’t risk looking wimpy.
