"The threat to retaliate against Israel with weapons of mass destruction is credible," said Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, who previously served on the House Armed Services Committee and with the CIA. "A highly credible source in 2005 warned that a decision had been made at the highest level of the Iranian government to arm numerous ballistic missiles with chemical and biological warheads to retaliate against Israel if Iran's vital interests were endangered. The fall of [Syrian President Bashar] Assad would constitute endangerment of Iran's vital interest."
"The newly discovered underground complex looks like the kind of enormous complexes built by the USSR during the Cold War and by Russia today," Mr. Pry said. "The imagery suggests a top-priority military site."
