This is a coup against America's duly elected government, an attempted overthrow of the will of the American people. This is shocking. The danger here is incalculable. The system is not merely broken, it is traitorous. Americans do not yet fully understand the enormity of this act of sedition.
Ed Lasky has explosive revelations in today's American Thinker (and of course John Bolton is, yet again, the hero in all this). UNfreakinbelievable.
During the Q and A he discusses Van Vann Diepen-one of the three authors of the National Intelligence Estimate. The story concerns John Bolton's efforts to derail North Korea and Iran's nuclear weapons programs. Bolton, who later became the US Ambassador to the United Nations, at the time conceived and headed the Proliferation Security Initiative. This effort to control WMD was very successful. Among its accomplishments were the interdiction of shipments of illicit weapons, the disclosure of the Libyan nuclear weapons program, and the unraveling of the A.Q. Khan nuclear weapons bazaar.
Even some of Bolton's critics of his performance at the United Nations give him credit for this important program. However, one of his key underlings-in an act of insubordination-systematically tried to derail Bolton's plan to disable Iran and North Korea's ability to develop WMD. That underling? Van Viepen. From the Frontpage Q and A:
Here was an open call to insubordination, and, I might add, it was not an isolated incident. We have heard recently from John Bolton confirmation of another story I tell in the book about Vann Van Diepen, one of the authors of the recent Iran NIE. Van Diepen systematically refused to carry out direct orders from Bolton to enforce non-proliferation sanctions against Iran and North Korea , because he disagreed with the policy.The evidence continues to mount that this NIE was a work of fiction. Critics from across the political spectrum have voiced skepticism about its conclusions and its methodology; European allies doubt its accuracy, the International Atomic Energy Agency (which normally "sides" with Iran) has raised serious objections. The only parties that seem to trumpet the NIE report are Iran, Russia, and China-our foes.
Seems like the NIE authors seem eye to eye with them and are doing their handiwork for them

Group Says Iran Resumed Weapon Program - Marc Champion and Jay Solomon
The National Council for Resistance in Iran (NCRI), the Iranian opposition group that first exposed Iran's nuclear-fuel program, said a U.S. intelligence analysis is correct that Tehran shut down its weaponization program in 2003, but claims that the program was relocated and restarted in 2004. According to the NCRI, Iran's Supreme National Security Council decided to shut down its most important center for nuclear-weapons research in eastern Tehran, called Lavisan-Shian, in August 2003. Lavisan was broken into 11 fields of research, including development of a nuclear trigger and of the technology to shape weapons-grade uranium into a warhead.
At the same meeting, the council decided to disperse pieces of the research to a number of locations around Iran. By the time international nuclear inspectors were allowed access to Lavisan, the buildings had been torn down and the ground bulldozed. "They scattered the weaponization program to other locations and restarted in 2004," said Mohammad Mohaddessin, NCRI foreign affairs chief. (Wall Street Journal)

Twenty-one commanders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are the top scientists running Iran's secret nuclear weapons program, says the man who exposed Iran's nuclear weapons program in 2002. On top of that, the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate published last week saying Tehran shut down its weaponization program in 2003 failed to mention that the program restarted in mid-2004, said Alireza Jafarzadeh, an Iranian dissident and president of Strategic Policy Consulting. Jafarzadeh told FOX News: "They have a number of sites controlled by the IRGC that hav e been off-limits to the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) inspectors, including a military university known as Imam Hossein University....They have perhaps the most advanced nuclear research and development center in that university."
