General agreement that Iran is nowhere near having the nuclear bomb

Intel shows Iran nuclear threat not imminent, Business Recorder, MARCH 24, 2012   The United States, European allies and even Israel generally agree on three things about Iran’s nuclear program: Tehran does not have a bomb, has not decided to build one, and is probably years away from having a deliverable nuclear warhead.

Those conclusions, drawn from extensive interviews with current and
former US and European officials with access to intelligence on Iran,

Current and former US officials say they are confident that Iran has
no secret uranium-enrichment site outside the purview of UN nuclear

argument that there is still time to see whether economic sanctions
will compel Iran’s leaders to halt any program.
The Obama administration, relying on a top-priority intelligence
