Iran Parallels Saddam's Nuclear Program

The Jerusalem Post reported "Iran has recently tested ways of recovering highly enriched uranium from waste reactor fuel in a covert bid to expand its nuclear program, according to an intelligence assessment."

When Saddam Hussein achieved similar capabilities in the 1980's, Israel responded by bombing Iraq's nuclear facilities.

IAEA officials would not comment on the leaked report. That's odd. Such information could be the linchpin for an attack. Or is that lynchpin?

Combine this story with Pentagon Chief Bob Gates lessening the standard for an American attack, and it could soon be "bombs over Tehran."
