U.S. Says Iran Ended Atomic Arms Work

The New York Times reported two years ago.

"WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 — A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains frozen, contradicting judgment two years ago that Tehran was working relentlessly toward building a nuclear bomb. "

Here's what the New York Times said in their 2007 article.

"The new report comes out just over five years after a deeply flawed N.I.E. concluded that Iraq possessed chemical and biological weapons programs and was determined to restart its nuclear program — an estimate that led to congressional authorization for a military invasion of Iraq, although most of the report’s conclusions turned out to be wrong. "

So, if the intelligence services were so wrong about Iraq, why was the New York Times so eager to believe them about Iran? Oh, I think you know the answer to that one.
