Topic: Iran’s nuclear program
“By accident or not, it’s entirely possible the covert war could escalate into a real one, experts say. ‘I am less enthusiastic about how effective all this going to be than some people in the administration,’ says Matthew Bunn, a nuclear investigator at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Bunn says he has occasionally discussed the program with the Obama administration officials, and ‘some have broadly suggested they think this is major element of slowing down Iranian progress.’”
