Why the Bush administration decided to make the new Iran nuclear intelligence public

Anatomy of a Turnabout

By Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball

The document says that the United States assesses with only "moderate confidence" that as of a few months ago Tehran's secret program had not been restarted, but also says that if Iran resumed its nuclear bomb program it would be unlikely to be able to actually produce a bomb until 2010 at the earliest, and more likely not for several years more. The document says U.S. intelligence believes with "moderate-to-high confidence" that Tehran is still "keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons."


Iran Intelligence Report: More Psychological Warfare?

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Under the current administration, it is increasingly difficult to know who the enemy is, but what is certain is that the latest National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) is a brilliantly executed psychological warfare by way of misinformation. This dastardly plan is so devious that even the anti-war groups are jubilant at its release, and they are naively sharing its contents. Perhaps non are as enthusiastic about the report as the most powerful lobby group in America hostile to Iran.


Bush says Iran must explain past nuclear work

Ahmadinejad and other authorities here have ignored the part of the report saying that Iran pursued secret nuclear weapons activities until 2003, and they have addressed only the part that says Iran's nuclear activities have been for peaceful purposes since then.


Rice Wins Support for Iran Sanctions

U.S. and allies continue to push for sanctions against Iran

The U.S. envoy to the UN, Zalmay Khalilzad said on Tuesday, "Let me say what the NIE says and what it doesn't say. The NIE says that there was a covert military dedicated nuclear weapons program. That in 2003 stopped because of international pressure... But, it does not say that Iran does not have the intention to develop a nuclear weapons capability, that it has abandoned the goal of acquiring a nuclear weapons capability permanently".

More proof Bush lied again: Nuclear fallout / Who's right here?

Israel has known about the report for more than a month. The first information on it was passed on to Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and to Shaul Mofaz, who is the minister responsible for the strategic dialog with the Americans. The issue was also discussed at the Annapolis summit by Barak and U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and it seems also between Bush and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.


Former CIA Officials: Bush Iran Claims "Preposterous"

Four former CIA officials who provided intelligence information to past presidents described as preposterous President Bush's claim that he was unaware until very recently that Iran had stopped its nuclear weapons program in 2003.


Iran military talks sparked US reversal
