National Intelligence Report on Iran

I know all of you out there are probably tired of hearing from me today, but I promise this is the last post for today, I just had a few stored up since I didn't post yesterday. This post is on the latest National Intelligence Estimate, NIE for short, on Iran's Nuclear Program. This report is available online in a redacted form. This NIE states "We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program; we also assess with moderate-to-high confidence that Tehran at a minimum is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons."

President Bush conducted a press conference this morning to discuss this NIE. You can read or watch this conference (click the video icon on the right) from the White House site. He didn't only discuss the NIE report, but you can get not only his statement, but also the questions and answer discussion with the press.

Don't want to read or watch all of that? Check out press reaction from the Washington Post in "Bush: Iran Intelligence Report is Warning Signal" or Fox News in "Bush: Iran Remains Dangerous Despite Halt to Nuke Weapons Program."
