“ArmsControlWonk.com”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/ (a sandbox in which I used to play) and its readers have had their influence publicly acknowledged a couple of times recently.
You prolly already know about the _NYT_ “article”:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/29/science/29nuke.html which quoted Jeffrey and some readers’ comments on the subject of the “photos”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/1849/ir-2s-on-display that Iran released of its centrifuges.
But Mark Fitzpatrick of IISS recently paid that blog another compliment. He said during the institute’s June 19 Washington roll out of its “most recent dossier,”:http://www.iiss.org/publications/strategic-dossiers/nuclear-programmes-in-the-middle-east-in-the-shadow-of-iran/ _Nuclear Programmes in the Middle East: In the shadow of Iran_
that “comments”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/1866/just-how-big-was-al-kibar-again on _ACW_ about the Syrian reactorbox that Israel blew up helped analysts who worked on the dossier to assess that the box was actually a reactor.
Anyway, credit where it’s due and all that.
P.S. Mark could have been talking about the post I linked to above, or it could be, say, “this one”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/1766/the-box-is-back or “this one.”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/1863/boe-just-might-be-reactor-after-all#comment I am just guessing.
