If you’re in DC and interested in averting a war with Iran, you must attend the Atlantic Council’s presentation on Friday of Khosrow Semnani’s groundbreaking study. He’s produced the first scientific projection of the number of casualties from a strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. The event will be hosted by Barbara Slavin. The sponsors will be the Council’s Iran Task Force co-chaired by Sen. Chuck Hagel and Stuart Eizenstat. The latter of course is a card-carrying leader of the pro-Israel lobby since his days in the Carter administration. I don’t know what to make of someone like him endorsing Semnani’s study even indirectly in this way. The Woodrow Wilson Center is another co-sponsor. This is definitely a coup for those who organized the study.
