H1 Time Spinning the NIE Iran Report by Tony Karon

Andrew Sullivan / The Atlantic Online: The System Is Working

Intelligence Daily US intelligence report heightens danger of Israeli strike on Iran

New York Times U.S. Says Military Notes Led to Shift on Iran American intelligence agencies obtained notes last summer from the deliberations of Iranian military officials involved in the weapons development program.

Pushed Out of Baghdad, Insurgents Move North A growing number of Sunni insurgents have relocated to Mosul and other places in northern Iraq as the additional forces sent by President Bush have moved to Baghdad.

In Iran We Trust? By VALERIE LINCY and GARY MILHOLLIN We should be suspicious of any document that suddenly gives the Bush administration a pass on a big national security problem it won’t solve during its remaining year in office.

Editorial Dangerous, Unfinished Business The better approach for Kosovo, for all involved, would be an internationally supervised independence recognized by the United Nations.

Christian Science Monitor The right way to keep tabs on Iran's nuclear program A plan that Tehran flirst floated in 2005 could satisfy all sides. By Bennett Ramberg

More Gazans turn away from Hamas as Fatah heads toward peace talks

Israel's army chief said Wednesday that the military is poised for a broad offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Guardian The best answer for Kosovo is EU membership - and for Serbia too Timothy Garton Ash: If Russia won't play ball, a coordinated declaration of independence for the disputed territory is the next best thing

The new De Gaulle? Robert Skidelsky Vladimir Putin could yet carve out a role for his country similar to that played by France in the 20th century

Dog days for the super dollar

Kenneth Rogoff The US currency's dominant status is being threatened both by the rise of other economies and its own innate instability

With Bush on our side Yossi Alpher The National Intelligence Estimate on Iran is worrying for Israel - but it will be even more so in the years following the end of the Bush presidency

Lies, damn lies and Pentagon statistics Brian Katulis Shockingly, the US military has no clear way of measuring the success of its key Iraq strategy: developing the country's security forces

After the surge: The only Iraq worth fighting for Four Flawed Proposals The best way for a big power to fight an insurgency is to avoid fighting it in the first instance by helping solve the political issue that created the conflict, thus drying up support for the insurgents

Los Angeles Times Report on Iran fuels Arab fears Some analysts say Tehran may feel emboldened to interfere in the region.

Legislating history By Ian Buruma The law is too blunt an instrument to deal with a nation's mistakes.

Stratfor Geopolitical Diary: What's French for 'Hoodwinked'? The impact of the recently released U.S. National Intelligence Estimate is continuing to reverberate around the world as the possibility of a U.S.-Iranian detente -- and the nonexistence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program -- sinks in.

The Economist Is Iran's weapons programme less threatening than America once thought?

The Times Kosovo signals the micro-state age If Kosovo declares independence from Serbia it could inspire more provinces to go it alone

From Newsweek, at last, intel agencies seem to be on the right track about Iran's nuke program — Christopher Dickey goes inside the latest assessment; and a look at the winners and losers after the report.

Financial Times Editorial Oil cartel sails into troubled waters It is no longer clear what oil price range the cartel is seeking to maintain. And, as long as the infighting continues, its policy will continue to be opaque, contributing to market volatility

Ha’aretz Rosner: Israel certain Iran is playing tricks on U.S. intelligence

Editorial The world's nudnikWhile Iran continues threatening to annihilate Israel, what American intelligence thinks about Iran's nuclear capability is irrelevant

Avner Cohen Not the best intelligence Assuming the American intelligence community recognized only last summer that four years ago, Iran halted its work on weaponization, it is clear the United States' aptitude in the realm of intelligence is suboptimal

Washington Post The Flaws In the Iran Report By John R. Bolton, Ironically, the NIE opens the way for Iran to achieve its military nuclear ambitions in an essentially unmolested fashion.

CFR Holbrooke: Kosovo Independence Declaration Could Spark Crisis

Landis: Syria Key to Middle East Peace Process

Asia Times The Syrians are back It's sunshine for Syria now after nearly three years of international gloom. After a strong US-led anti-Syria campaign, the White House has done a U-turn with its invitation to Syria to attend the Annapolis peace conference and its backing for Michel Suleiman's bid for the Lebanese presidency. Britain, Germany and Italy have also woken up to the reality of Syria's large potential for helping to resolve Middle East issues. - Sami Moubayed

Spies show Bush a way forward on Iran While US inteligence agencies assert that Iran has halted its nuclear-weapons program (if it ever had one), Bush now says merely the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear bomb is enough to make Tehran "dangerous". Yet the latest assessment points the way to a policy of negotiation that promises Iran security benefits. This was the approach of Britain, France and Germany - rejected by Washington - four years ago when the Iranians are now said to have stopped their weapons program. - Gareth Porter

The plan to topple Pakistan's militaryFor the United States, it is not about President Pervez Musharraf any more. It is about clipping the wings of a strong Pakistani military, denying space for China in Pakistan, squashing the intelligence services, stirring ethnic unrest and neutralizing Pakistan's nuclear program. Musharraf shares the blame for letting things come this far. But he is also punching holes in Washington's game plan. - Ahmed Quraishi

"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar


"... fantastic .... an outstanding and unique service, not just for those who follow Turkey closely, but those who follow international trends and ideas. ... selection of material is some of the best anywhere ... coverage of the Turkish press and Turkish issues is truly unsurpassed .... outstanding and intelligent service"
