The publication of the report made by American intelligence indicating that Iran has suspended its nuclear program since 2003, putting the credibility of the country in terms of foreign policy, said, as a whole, the American press of Wednesday, Dec. 5. "It is embarrassing that these revelations come just a few weeks after Bush invoked the specter of the third world war against Iran nuclear 'and that the Vice President Dick Cheney making barely veiled threats against the country, based on information unreliable", the Los Angeles Times.
After Iraq, Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib, it was difficult to imagine that the American administration can do more harm to the credibility of the country. But it did, "noted for its The New York Times, especially because the contradictions, and even the opposition, between the Bush policy and the conclusions by the American Secret Service, added to the confusion around "Iranian dossier." However, the newspaper noted, "the intelligence community is now ready to question his own assumptions and challenge the feverish rhetoric of the White House."
THE "LESSONS" LEARNED FROM THE DÉBÂCLE OF INFORMATION 'IN IRAQ
The experience of Iraq is still in the background, including the assertions by the American Secret Service concerning the presence of weapons of mass destruction in the country. The Washington Post is clear in this report the "lessons" from the "intelligence debacle" in Iraq, after which there was "radical changes in the way the intelligence community analyzes information." With an evocative title - "New data, new methods, new claims on Iran", the International Herald Tribune takes the same line: "The intelligence agencies have swallowed the pill and pledged to do better after presidential commission in 2005, which demonstrated the failures of intelligence that led to war in Iraq. "
The Christian Science Monitor is more circumspect about the evolution of American Secret Service and hoped that "the international community does not relies solely on [the information] American intelligence-good or bad - but on the full cooperation of Iran with the IAEA, "the International Agency for Atomic Energy Agency responsible for ensuring peaceful uses of nuclear programs of states. Thus, the CSM calls for a tightening of sanctions against Tehran ", which will force the Iranian leadership to realize that their interest is to focus on the economic needs of the people instead of trying to expand their regional influence."
Because, as recalled in the Chicago Tribune, caution is still required. "There is a reality in Iran. The country has 3000 centrifuges active and uranium enrichment has accelerated, despite two rounds of UN sanctions and a tightening of economic sanctions the United States ", said the daily, before concluding:" While there is good news from Iran but the world can not afford now to close their eyes.
