Has the debacle of Chalabi and the Iraqi National Congress taught us nothing? Powell's claims about Iran developing nuclear missile capabilities were apparently based on a single "walk-in" source, and the information was not even meant to be shared with allies at this point, let alone the press. This begs some interesting questions about how a person can come in off the street with a handful of drawings, and a week later Powell is making bold claims about the country based solely on this. I don't doubt that Iran is the biggest threat of the region, but Powell seems intent on shredding his last bits of credibility.
