Now, one might expect that clicking on a headline like that would bring up a breaking news report direct from the Pentagon about a recently uncovered Iranian terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear bomb within our borders. Homeland Insecurity would raise the national threat level to "High." (That's Orange, kids.)
No. Instead, you get sheer speculation (i.e. wishful thinking) on the part of the warmongering press:
Iran has carried out missile tests for what could be a plan for a nuclear strike on the United States, the head of a national security panel has warned.It shouldn't surprise anyone that this is what passes for journalism in a country where most people are too lazy to read beyond the headlines.
In testimony before the House Armed Services Committee and in remarks to a private conference on missile defense over the weekend hosted by the Claremont Institute, Dr. William Graham warned that the U.S. intelligence community "doesn't have a story" to explain the recent Iranian tests.
