Dr. Muqtedar Khan is a middle east expert and an assistant professor at the University of Delaware and a non-resident fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington. In a recent editorial he wrote: "Iran, thanks to America's foolhardy adventure in Iraq, is rapidly emerging as a regional power. It is protecting itself from America's pressure on the nuclear issue by creating a dangerous diversion."
So here is my question for Dr. KhanIsrael, out of necessity, has a very robust intelligence operation. Why did the Israeli leadership decide to allow George Bush to invade Iraq knowing that the intelligence pointing to an Iraq WMD program was dubious at best and completely bogus at worst?
Follow-up In a way, do you believe that they are now paying a price for making that decision?UPDATE:
Kahn's best line came after we went off the air.
Dace said something ike, "What we need is another JFK type President to make oil a second class energy by having a sort of apollo program for hydrogen, or fuel cells."
Prof. Kahn said, "I agree 100% We need another Democratic President like JFK."
