CIA Director Brennan Worried about Iran and North Korea Nuclear Cooperative Development?

CIA Director John Brennan

There they  were at  a  University of Texas conference  , the masters of intelligence disinformation , CIA Director John Brennan and DNI, James Clapper, poring over Kennedy Johnson era mythologies about body counts  as metrics of  success during  the Nam  era of the 1960’s and 1970’s seizing defeat from the jaws of victory.  What a consummate waste of taxpayers’  dollars  deflecting serious examination  of  national security  failed strategies  of an Administration intent on weakening America’s  geo-political respect  among doubting allies. All while hollowing out our military capabilities.

 Brennan’s track record  at the White House, before he was appointed  as CIA head to  replace  Gen. Petreaus,   was as  counterterrorism  czar overseeing a number of  Obama covert initiatives.  There was  the drone assassination program, sugar coating the radical Islam threat  and running  covert ops under Presidential Findings  collecting MANPADS  and shipping them  to Syrian rebels.  More may be revealed in upcoming hearings  by the  Special Benghazi  Committee.

 In this Washington Times  (WT) report, Brennan raises the possibility that maybe, just maybe, Iran could have outsourced developments of nuclear weapons ad ICBMs to North Korea.  Brennan was responded to media  reports to that effect.  He was cited by the WT saying:

Therefore, we have to make sure that we’re doing whatever we can to uncover anything,” Mr. Brennan said. “I’m not saying that something is afoot at all — what I’m saying is that we need to be attuned to all of the potential pathways to acquiring different types of [weapons of mass destruction] capabilities.  

The WT  further noted:

 Mr. Brennan’s remarks on the Iran nuclear deal come just days after Mr. Clapper revealed that U.S. intelligence officials “are fielding some independent capabilities that will enable us … to have good insight into [Iran‘s] nuclear industrial enterprise” as the accord goes into effect over the coming months. 

Mr. Clapper told the conference that he’s “pretty confident” U.S. intelligence officials will be able to verify “from our own sources” the accuracy of future IAEA assessments of whether or not Iran is complying with the terms of the accord.

Mr. Brennan on Tuesday also said that he stands behind the nuclear deal, and that he has “a lot of confidence” that the accord is structured in such a way that will make it extremely difficult for Iran to cheat.

What have my colleague Ilana Freedman , Stephen and Shoshana Bryen,  Israeli  Missile  defense expert Uzi Rubin,  DIA and Office of Naval Intelligence  reports been saying for nearly five years about cooperative nuclear weapons and  ICBM developments between these  partners in the Axis of Evil?  That they may already  have developed a small number of nuclear weapons, tested warheads to be fitted on Shahab 3 missiles, and launched  missiles with  disposable boosters for  satellite  bombs   and ICBMs.

 House and Senate Iran deal hearings didn’t lay a glove on any of the Administration witnesses querying them about these possibilities , whether behind doors, or in front of the klieg lights of TV-cameras. Brennan either knew about those covert development possibilities, or  purposefully evaded responsibility for  informing  Congressional Select Permanent Intelligence Committees  about the status of those joint Iranian –North Korean development efforts. 

We knew from what was leaked by the Pentagon regarding the September 2007 IAF Operation Orchard that destroyed the Syrian nuclear bomb factory on the Euphrates at al-Kibar there were intelligence file photos of North Korean and Iranian scientists at the site.  That was under Bush 43.

Would you place any trust in the representations of Messrs.  Brennan and Clapper?  Clapper is now embroiled in another intelligence disaster, the  allegations that as DNI he met frequently with CENTCOM intelligence chief, Gen. Grove to review  assessments of  the coalition aerial campaign against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.  Given reports of a veritable revolt by 50 CENTCOM analysts about overly optimistic assessments about progress in defeating or at least achieving a stalemate in the war against ISIS, Clapper may be the subject of a Pentagon Inspector General investigations leading to possible  House and Senate Select Permanent Intelligence Hearings.  A Daily Beast report  in late August 2015 quoted  former DIA chief, retired US Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn saying, “The phrase I use is the politicization of the intelligence community. That’s here. And it’s dangerous.”
