Working as an ecologist in the national parks in Tanzania led Noel Mbise to the realization that creating good policy is not enough to save the environment when people have immediate needs for resources – which led him to the Monterey Institute.
CNS Expert Cited by NY Times, Others on Israel-Iran Nuclear Rivalry
January 19, 2011
Avner Cohen, author of two books on Israeli nuclear policy and a senior fellow at the Monterey Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, was quoted in a January 15 New York Times piece that explored Israel’s possible role in delaying Iran’s progress toward developing a nuclear weapon. The article, titled “Israeli Test on Worm Called Crucial in Iran Nuclear Delay,” describes a clandestine program of what might be characterized as industrial espionage. It describes a speculated-upon but not officially confirmed effort to infect the computers used to control sensitive equipment at the center of Iran’s nuclear program with a worm that would cause the equipment to damage itself. The article was subsequently referenced and/or reprinted by media outlets from India to the UK, and led to a follow-up interview with Cohen on Iranian.com.
