5. The only honest assessments we get about Iran are from the Pentagon.

This goes back to the big pushback from the Pentagon brass when the Bush-Cheney Whitehouse wanted to "fall forward" into Iran in 2006-07.

The irony is that the State Department has been the branch pushing hardest toward war, at least publicly. A lot of neocons at State.
