A former CIA agent who infiltrated Iran’s Revolutionary Guards writes at Pajamas Media, citing the deputy head of the Iranian parliament’s foreign affairs and national security commission, that Russia has begun supplying Iran with components for its S-300 surface-to-air missile systems.

The mullahs who rule over Iran will soon have the means to protect their nuclear sites against any possible attacks by Israel or the United States.

President Obama says his policies will represent a break with “business as usual.” Do you think that means he intends to get serious about Iran’s nuclear program? No, I don’t think so, either.
