CIA director Leon Panetta has admitted that Iran has enough low-enriched uranium for two nuclear bombs that would likely take two years to build. In an interview with ABC’s This Week Sunday, June 27, the spy chief virtually admitted that every effort to halt Iran’s drive for a nuclear bomb had failed. Asked if the latest round of UN sanctions would put an end to Iran’s nuclear ambitions, he said: “Probably not.”
In so doing, he refuted the latest firm-sounding assertions by US president Barack Obama and defense secretary Robert Gates that Iran will not be allowed to acquire nuclear arms.
The Obama approach has turned into a major disaster but you would never know that if you listen to the White House.
