Diplomatic frenzy over updated Iran intel

Israeli, American and British intelligence and government officials have reportedly engaged in a rash of meetings over the past month, which many more scheduled for this month, over a reported breakthrough in the collection of evidence that Iran plans to build nuclear weapons.

London's Sunday Times reported that newly acquired Israeli intelligence of the same quality that Washington agrees justified the Jewish State's attack on a suspected Syrian nuclear facility has year now points to an Iranian nuclear program far more advanced than recent estimates gave Tehran credit for.

In an address at Yale University last week, Israeli Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz hinted at the severity of the new intelligence by warning that Iran could very well test a nuclear weapon by the end of this year.

Israeli officials cited by the British newspaper said they expect both the US and Britain to update their own official assessments on the Iran threat as a result of the new evidence.
