expert testimony

A representative of the Committee on the Present Danger, along with two other "experts" ( a Columbia professor and the executive director of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center) testified in front a House hearing on Thursday. What did they testify about? Policy towards Iran. According to the National Iranian American Council, this summarizes what these experts have said: "Iranian People Are Our Allies, Pressure on Regime Needed, Experts Testify at House Hearing!"

These all sound good, but one needs to read the testimonies to know why the issue is less glorious than it sounds in NIAC's headline. I have written a lengthy post about this on No War on Iran, so I won't repeat what I've said. But, you may find this flier from the Committee on the Present Danger amusing!
