Helping Iran Build the Bomb

Important piece coming Sunday in NYT by veteran science writer William J. Broad on what he calls the "surprising" (though not too many) news that a great number of experts say an Israel or U.S. attack on Iran would actually speed their bomb project.  For example:
Mark Fitzpatrick, a senior nonproliferation official at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, a prominent arms analysis group in London, said in an e-mail interview that it was “almost certain” that a military strike on Iran would result in “a Manhattan-style rush to produce nuclear weapons as fast as possible.”
