Gal Beckerman worked briefly at Meretz USA before attending the Columbia University School of Journalism. He frequently writes for The Forward. Newly available online is an analysis of the Iran nuclear issue entitled “With Each New Assessment, Iran’s Nuclear Clock Is Reset”; it has this descriptive subtitle: “Politics Plays a Role in How Intelligence Is Interpreted.”
Gal proves the point that this contentious matter is complicated by uncertain intelligence on when Iran may go nuclear and if it is actively pursuing a weapons program. The latest issue of ISRAEL HORIZONS has two articles dealing with Iran on the nuclear question, one by Prof. Robert O. Freedman and the other by Gidon D. Remba (the latter included on this Weblog). I also suggest that you check out National Public Radio’s focus this week on this vital subject.
