Intel Chief: Iran Will Have ICBM By 2015 (Washington Free Beacon)

Iran will have inter-continental ballistic missiles by 2015, a top intelligence official told the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday.

“I think when the Chairman [of the Joint Chiefs of Staff] talked about our assessment being in the 2015 timeframe, given the development that we’ve seen, that’s accurate,” Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah) at the hearing.

Iran’s ballistic missile program has become a growing concern for the United States and its allies in the Middle East. One of Iran’s top nuclear negotiators recently statedthat Iran would not negotiate with the United States over its ballistic missile program under any circumstances.
