A new U.S. intelligence report says that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that it remains on hold.
The latest National Intelligence Estimate concluded: "We do not know whether (Iran) currently intends to develop nuclear weapons."
This contrasts strongly with an intelligence report two years ago that stated Iran was "determined to develop nuclear weapons."
However, the new assessment said the technical capabilities Iran is pursuing would likely be capable of producing enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon "sometime during the 2010-2015 time-frame." So that might yet provide the Bush administration (or a prospective Clinton administration) with enough terror to fuel their wars for corporate command and control.
