Note Convinced CIA Iran Halted Nuclear Weapons Program – NIE Reverses Previous Evidence From Laptop Indicating Warhead Plans

Bush News Conference

(Best Syndication – Pinon Hills CA) It is pretty clear that the US intelligence agencies do not have any evidence that Iran currently has a nuclear weapons program, but what evidence do they have that they don’t? The evidence may be in the form of a note received last summer.

US Officials said Wednesday that the note includes a conversation and deliberation in which Iranian military officials complained about the decision to scrap their design and engineering efforts which included a plan to fit warheads on top of Iranian missiles. The note did not give any reason why the nuclear weapons programs were scrapped.

President Bush Threatens To Isolate Iran At News Conference – NIE Says Iranian Nuclear Weapons Program Ended Back In 2003

President Bush Tuesday

(Best Syndication) The press conference today by President Bush left some Democrats scratching their heads in disbelief. A recent National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) stated that Iran had given up their nuclear weapons program back in 2003. The President said that the Iranians could re-establish a nuclear weapons program anytime.

“The NIE provides an opportunity for us to rally the international community, continue to rally the community to pressure the Iranian regime to suspend its program,” the President said Tuesday morning. The NIE states that the Iranians did have a nuclear weapons program but halted it in the fall of 2003. Iran joins many other nations - including Canada, Australia, Brazil, and others - who once had a weapons program but dissolved it.

(Best Syndication) Although the House of Representatives narrowly passed a war spending bill that would have called for a planned withdrawal of American forces from Iraq, the Senate rejected the legislation, possibly pushing the debate until next year for more money. This bill would have authorized another $50 billion, but with various strings attached, including a pullout and a definition of torture.

In contrast, the Republicans wanted to provide another $70 billion with no restrictions; but their procedural-vote bill failed to pass 45-53. The Democrats bill got a majority of the vote, 53-45, but was still seven votes shy of advancing. The Republicans were 15 votes shy.

(Best Syndication) The Democrats in House of Representatives have sent a bill over to the Senate which would call for timetable for bringing the troops out of Iraq. The Senate will likely reject the bill which the President said he would veto. Passing by a bare-margin of 218 in favor and 203 against, the bill would have provided for $50 billion in short-term war funding.

The bill would require the President to pull the troops away from combat duties and begin a withdrawal within 30 days. The sponsor of H.R.4156, Representative, David R. Obey, Democrat from Wisconsin, says the war is hurting the country both here and abroad. “It is clear, the President has absolutely not idea of how to the get our troops out,” Obey said.

(Best Syndication) The Bush Administration said that the US would be willing to work with Turkey in their effort to fight back against Kurdish rebels. In a meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, the President said “PKK is a terrorist organization. They're an enemy of Turkey, they're an enemy of Iraq, and they're an enemy of the United States.”

The PKK is the Kurdistan Worker’s Party which several countries have declared a terrorist organization. The United States will help Turkey by providing intelligence and by tracking the movements of the PKK fighters. The group, formed back in the 1970s, is considered a terrorist organization by NATO, the United States and the European Union. One of their goals has been to destabilize the Turkish government.
