Osirak Foreshadowing: 1980 Iran Edition

After I posted “this short bit”:http://www.totalwonkerr.net/2213/osirak-foreshadowing-1981-state-dept-edition about the 1981 Israeli attack on Osriak, an astute reader reminded me of a topic that I meant to blog about: Iran’s attack on the same reactor the previous year.

The National Security Archives posted “this October 1, 1980”:http://nsarchive.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/iran-iraq1.pdf edition of the National Intelligence Daily which confirmed the attack.

The “post”:http://nsarchive.wordpress.com/2012/03/09/document-friday-when-iran-bombed-iraqs-nuclear-reactor/#more-4872 also contains a good account (AFAIK, it’s good – I don’t know anything about the history) of the whole issue, so take a look.
