Intel report: Iran halted nuclear weapons work in 2003

Raw Story

A new US intelligence report indicates that Iran halted its nuclear weapons development program four years ago -- but the White House on Monday nevertheless urged global powers to "turn up the pressure" on the country.

The new NIE represents a change from two years ago, when US intelligence agencies believed Tehran was determined to develop a nuclear capability and was continuing its weapons development program. A 2005 report stated that Iran was "determined to develop nuclear weapons despite its international obligations and international pressure."

"Tehran's decision to halt its nuclear weapons program suggests it is less determined to develop nuclear weapons than we have been judging since 2005," states the summary of the new NIE, according to AP.


If you think this is going to deter or stop that mono-fuckin'-maniac Cheney from his plans to attack Iran, think again. It might slow him down a little at best, but time is running out for him to do it. Unless of course this administration thinks it has all the time it needs if there's no election in November.

This is one more of their lies coming to light from within their own administration. Impeach the bastards NOW.
