GOP: Iran Not Sufficiently Scary
If you read today's New York Times, you know that Congressional Republicans are not happy with US intelligence agencies right now. Why? Because those killjoys refuse to report a fanciful worst-case scenario as a done deal. Honorary Congressional Republican Newt Gingrich, fresh from a screening of Alien vs. Predator:
"When the intelligence community says Iran is 5 to 10 years away from a nuclear weapon, I ask: 'If North Korea were to ship them a nuke tomorrow, how close would they be then?'"
Answered your own question there, Newt. Also, if Lex Luthor and the Joker teamed up, the Justice League would be doomed.
The House Intelligence Committee has fought back the only way they can: with a scary committee report, the awesome cover of which is at right and a complete copy of which is available here (it's got a scary picture of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- not this scary, but close).
Iran promptly responded with their own scary intelligence report, the cover of which is dutifully reprinted after the jump.
