Iran ceased any efforts to design a nuclear warhead or covertly enrich uranium to weapons-grade levels in 2003 and has no current nuclear weapons program. Those were the conclusions of last year’s National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran. The NIE was an authoritative assessment of the coordinated judgments of the entire United States intelligence apparatus. The report frustrated US hawks who hoped to parlay fear over Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program into a justification for regime change, and was condemned by Israeli officials as a lie. Despite the NIE’s declassification over a year ago, US officials continue to accuse Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons.
