AP NewsBreak: Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb

• Breitbart
 The document drafted by senior officials at the International Atomic Energy Agency is the clearest indication yet that the agency's leaders share Washington's views on Iran's weapon-making capabilities.

It appears to be the so-called "secret annex" on Iran's nuclear program that Washington says is being withheld by the IAEA's chief.

The document says Iran has "sufficient information" to build a bomb. It says Iran is likely to "overcome problems" on developing a delivery system.

But it clearly prompted some dismay in Central and Eastern Europe, where the Bush plan had been seen as an effective guarantor of US support for the fledgling democracies of the old Soviet empire. It will also send a chill through Russia's neighbours.

"This is not good news for the Czech state, for Czech freedom and independence," said Mirek Topolanek, the former Czech Prime Minister. "It puts us in a position where we are not firmly anchored in terms of partnership, security and alliance, and that’s a certain threat."

The decision to abandon one of Mr Bush's key foreign policy initiatives was quickly denounced by Mr Obama's Republican foes, who accused him of underestimating the threat posed by Iran and of undercutting America's allies in Europe.

"The decision announced today by the Administration is dangerous and short-sighted," the No 2 Republican in the Senate, Jon Kyl, said in a statement.

Mr Kyl said that the shift would leave the United States "vulnerable to the growing Iranian long-range missile threat" and would send a chilling message to former Soviet satellites who had braved Moscow’s anger to support the system.

So fabricated and shared with the media by Mossad or the CIA?
