Gen. Hayden Says Attacking Iran Is a Bad Idea

Josh Rogin, the Cable guy at foreign, has a very important piece on statements made this evening by George W. Bush’s former NSA and CIA chief regarding the wisdom, or rather unwisdom, of a U.S. (or Israeli) attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. It’s an important addition to what appears to be the growing consensus among the national-security greybeards. Colin Kahl’s recent piece in Foreign Affairs, to which Rogin refers at the end of his post, is also worth checking out.
