Keller, Iraq War Hawk, Comes Out as 'Dove' on Nuclear Iran
Eye-opening column coming tomorrow from former chief NYT editor Bill Keller. He looks at the pros and cons of an attack on Iran to keep it from going nuclear--vs. the pros and cons of taking the chance it will indeed get nukes. How bad would the latter really be, past paranoia and bluster? He decides maybe not so bad--or at least not worse than going to war against Iran. It's always helpful to have someone in a key spot (always friendly to Israel) remind people--or in many cases, reveal to people--that Israel already has nukes, Iran knows it, and knows Israel would incinerate it in a heartbeat of Iran launched against Tel Aviv.
