Intel assessment: Iran Halted Nuke Program In '03

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/12/intel-assessment-iran-halted-nuke.html

This story claims that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003. However, as it provides no evidence that there was a program, and no evidence regarding the end of that program, there is no way to judge the report.
 
Is it just political spin?
 
 
U.S.: Iran Halted Nuke Program In '03
 
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3, 2007
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

(AP) Iran halted its nuclear weapons development program in the fall of 2003 under international pressure but is continuing to enrich uranium, which means it may still be able to develop a weapon between 2010 and 2015, senior intelligence officials said Monday.
 
That finding is a change from two years ago, when U.S. intelligence agencies believed Iran was determined to develop a nuclear capability and was continuing its weapons development program. It suggests that Iran is susceptible to diplomatic pressure, the official said.
 
"Tehran's decision to halt its nuclear weapons program suggests it is less determined to develop nuclear weapons than we have been judging since 2005," states the unclassified summary of the secret report, released Monday.
 
Officials said the new findings suggest that diplomacy was effective in containing Iran's nuclear ambitions.
 
"This is good news in that the U.S. policy coupled with the policies and actions of those who have been our partners appear to have had some success. Iran seems to have been pressured," one of the officials said. "Given that good news we don't want to relax. We want to keep those pressures up."
