Obama says Iran a year away from developing nuclear weapon
This is what Obama actually said: "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon"
CBC's headline is subtly and maliciously misleading. It implies that Iran is actively working on developing nuclear weapons and is on a track to succeed in one year's time.
This is very different from what Obama said. He only said that, IF Iran wanted a nuclear weapon and decided to develop one, it would take a year before they could have one.
Are CBC's writers and editors so incompetent in English that they cannot perceive this difference? Or are they so devilishly and corruptly smart that they are using English to disguise their war propaganda behind ambiguity?
And again I ask why does CBC so badly want a war on Iran? Whose interests are they serving?
