Thursday, the Obama Administration released a statement saying it would scrap the missile shield defense system to be placed in Poland and the Czech Republic. The system's planned purpose? To defend against long-range Iranian missiles aimed at Europe (see yesterday's post: "Did I Miss Something?").
The reason for the change in US policy is due to the Administration's belief that Iran's nuclear capabilities are not as far along as previously thought. Ironically, hours after the announcement, the UN's nuclear watchdog (International Atomic Energy Agency) released a report debunking that view.
In an ABC interview also aired yesterday Ahmadinejad refused to rule out an Iran nuclear bomb.
Bad timing huh?
You can read the details in Arthur Bright's article on the Christian Science Monitor's website.
