Making it worse, some say they'll be able to have a weapon by 2010.
That's sticking it to the man!
Iran did shut down its nuclear weapons program in 2003 but restarted it a year later, dispersing the equipment to thwart international inspectors, an overseas Iranian opposition group told the Wall Street Journal.I firmly believe Democrats don't care that the mullahs get a bomb so long as they can score cheap political points against President Bush.
The group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), exposed the country's nuclear-fuel program in 2002 and now believes a recent U.S. analysis is giving the wrong impression that Iran's nuclear program is not an urgent threat, the newspaper reported on Tuesday.
The U.S. National Intelligence Estimate published last week said Iran's weapons program was frozen in 2003, contradicting an earlier report that the Islamic Republic was determined to build a nuclear bomb.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert disagreed, saying Israel believes Iran will have the resources to create a nuclear weapon by 2010. But the estimate dampened any enthusiasm among Russia and China for more U.N. sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program, which Tehran says is for peaceful purposes.
