Iran, Nuclear Weapons and Bush Bluster

A National Intelligence Estimate that no one in the Bush Administration wanted released has, for some reason, been released. What does it say?
A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains on hold, contradicting an assessment two years ago that Tehran was working inexorably toward building a bomb.
This NIE was completed a year ago. So all the Bush bluster about Iran and World War III was just that.....bluster. But it sure was a good reason to try to convince the rubes we needed to take military action on Iran.

Let the Bush spin machine begin.
