Harvard professor criticizes US intelligence report on Iran


Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz has criticized the recent US intelligence assessment that Iran suspended its nuclear weapons program in 2003.

In an interview with ‘Shalom TV’ Dershowitz called the report both “dangerous” and “false”, adding: “[Iran is] clearly intending to develop a nuclear bomb, and anyone who doubts that should not be in a position of responsibility in the United States, in Israel, or in any Western country.”

Dershowitz asserted that it took “an absolute moron not to understand what Iran is doing. For purposes of getting the sanctions removed from Russia and from China and from others, they are overtly eliminating the military superstructure, but they are developing their capacity so that they can transfer it to a military use almost instantaneously… All the intelligence assessment is saying, basically, is that the Iranian government has pulled a bait and switch.”
