Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gives a speech at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility, April 9, 2007. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz believes this and other Iranian nuclear activity is part of a nuclear weapons program. Dershowitz has strongly criticized the U.S. intelligence community for its 2007 National Intelligence Estimate, in which it assessed that Iran had not yet decided whether to pursue the development of nuclear weapons.

Summary
Star criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz told LIGNET in an exclusive interview that the United States and other nations should join with Israel in doing what’s necessary to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
