On February 25, 2007, Michael Smith (left), and Sarah Baxter broke a story which saved the world from a nuclear holocaust: Some of America's most senior military commanders - four or five generals and admirals would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran, a source close to British intelligence said. The US Intelligence community simply did not believe that Iran had an active nuclear weapons program.
In November 2007, all 16 US intelligence agencies produced a National Intelligence Estimate that declared "with high confidence" that Iran had suspended any such program as of 2003. Dick Chaney's office tried to suppress that report and with George Bush told the chagrined Israeli government he would ignore it.
You and I, and the rest of the world owe these intelligence agencies and the high-ranking officers involved, a debt which we can never repay.
