Often reports made by various intelligence agencies remind me of these lines from Simon & Garfunkel's The Boxer: "...All lies and jest, still the man hears what he wants to hear / and disregards the rest, hmmmm". See here, here, and here. Of course, as a news consumer I am also guilty of regularly disregarding what I do not want to hear, read, see, and know. Still, when it c0mes to Iran's nuclear threat - does or doesn't it exist ? - I would love to believe the Iranians and the IAEA but I tend to have my doubts about their claims and about Teheran's good intentions, which leads me to believe the reports published in the Sunday Telegraph. If only I could trust Israel's leaders to know and choose the proper ways to deal with this issue.
