U.S. intelligence chief sees limited benefit in an attack on Iran

James Clapper, director of U.S. National Intelligence, said he doesn’t think Israel has decided to attack Iran’s uranium enrichment and other nuclear sites.

An Israeli bombing attack might set back Iran’s nuclear development program by one to two years, America’s top intelligence official told a Senate committee Thursday, indicating that viable military options are far more limited than Israeli leaders have suggested.
