HPSCI Chairman requests fresh look at Iran intelligence
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes sent a letter on July 28 to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper requesting a fresh look at the intelligence related to Iran’s nuclear intentions and capabilities and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
In his letter, Chairman Nunes requests that “the IC conduct three additional assessments. First, the IC should conduct an analysis of competing hypotheses of its assessment of its ability to verify the JCPOA. Second, the IC should conduct an analysis of competing hypotheses of Iran’s nuclear intent and capabilities. Third, the IC should conduct an assessment that takes an “outside the box” approach to provide thought and offer alternative viewpoints on the full range of analytic issues related to Iran, its nuclear intent and capability, and the JCPOA.”
