Thanks for the write-up Donny. I encourage your readers to check out the conclusion of the article as well that discusses the NIE issue.

Almost a year later, the 2007 NIE on Iran has become a distant memory. Politicians and the MSM rarely refer to it in their Iran rhetoric.

Then you have guys like John Bolton on Sept 3 saying the intelligence community “effectively repudiated” the NIE.

The very next day, Thomas Fingar Deputy Director of the NIA and Chair of the NIC reaffirmed what was in the NIE – that Iran had halted its weapons part of the nuclear program.

This is something that needs to be part of the national dialogue. One way to get us on the right path is to do an update to the NIE.

Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst who chaired National Intelligence Estimates in the past has called for this. It is referred to as a Memorandum to Holders.

From the article:

Ray McGovern offered that “Mullen should formally and publicly request a Memorandum to Holders of the November 2007 NIE on Iran inquiring into what the evidence collected since mid-07 might tell us of any changes. He could do that and he should.”

The function of an MTH explained McGovern “would be to update the most serious issues covered in the original NIE dated Nov. 07. A Memo to Holders could be done and coordinated among the 16 intelligence agencies in a month or two.”
