He's So Optimistic (gulp)

Robert Baer, who was a C.I.A. officer in the Middle East and elsewhere for two decades, told Seymour M. Hersh that

Ahmadinejad and his Revolutionary Guard colleagues in the Iranian government “are capable of making a bomb, hiding it, and launching it at Israel. They’re apocalyptic Shiites. If you’re sitting in Tel Aviv and you believe they’ve got nukes and missiles—you’ve got to take them out. These guys are nuts, and there’s no reason to back off.”

No further comment necessary.
