US Intelligence Again Rebukes The Bush Administration.

The Washington Post is reporting that a major US intelligence review has project that Iran is a decade away from manufacturing a nuclear weapon, doubling the previous estimate of five years. The Bush Administration has made different assertions on Iran’s nuclear programs, while offering to proof to their claims. In language that is eerily similar to his statements on Iraq prior to March of 2003, Bush said he wanted the Iranian crisis resolved diplomatically, but that “all options are on the table.”

Funny how you claim that Iran now is not a threat. Probably because it is the Bush administration saying so. But now the UN, that bastion of truth and justice that scammed the Iraqi's and allowed the rape of women and children in countries they do peace missions in, is now concerned about Iran.

So now that the UN is concerned are you still thinking that the US intelligence has rebuked the Bush Administration? Or is it that the UN is now as concerned and behind the eight-ball, as usual, when it comes to putting the Islamo-Fascists on notice?

I forgot you are the the guy who is "only reporting the news" so here is the story. You can thank me later....

'Serious Concern' at U.N. Over Iran

White House Says Iranian Leader Led Movement
VIENNA, Austria
— Diplomats at the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency were debating a draft resolution Thursday that expressed "serious concern" over Iran's resumption of uranium conversion but left open the possibility of more talks on the crisis.

The resolution, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, said the agency cannot confirm that Tehran has declared all its nuclear materials and activities. But it did not mention reporting the regime to the U.N. Security Council , which has the power to impose crippling sanctions.

The text, which was to be reviewed later Thursday by the International Atomic Energy Agency's 35-nation board of governors, expressed "serious concern" over Iran's resumption of uranium conversion this week at its nuclear facility at Isfahan, saying the move "underlines the importance of rectifying the situation ... and of allowing for the possibility of further discussions in relation to that situation."

The measure requested IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei to provide the board with a comprehensive report on Iran's compliance with an agency safeguards agreement by Sept. 3.

Gee lemme guess what 's gonna happen when they find that Iran is not on the up-and-up about their "peaceful" nuclear problem....lemme guess here....about 20 or 30 resolutions...a couple warnings...maybe a few sanctions....maybe they'll set up some sort of oil-for-food type program that will be for them to get out of the Nuclear energy program but in reality someone will be lining the pockets of the Iranian president...and then years later when we have to take them out militarily...

people like yourself will still insist that our military action was pre-emptive and rushed into.
