Obama: Iran ‘A Year or More’ from Nuclear Capability

President Barack Obama says U.S. intelligence assessments show Iran is still “a year or more away” from being able to build a nuclear weapon.

Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, acknowledged that Americans estimates are “more conservative” than those of the Israelis.

“Our assessment continues to be a year or more away, and in fact, actually our estimate is probably more conservative than the estimates of Israeli intelligence services,” Obama said.

I think Iran is actually 867 days, 21 hours, 54 minutes, and 32 seconds away from a nuclear bomb.

Now let's wait that amount of time and then I'll pull a new number out of my butt to scare the sheep!

"A year or more" is just as well as copy and pasted from 2009 when Obama first took office. For Netanyahu, the copy and paste routine goes as far back as the early 1990s.

@ -Nobody trusts the'conservative' US intelligence on Iran! after years and years assuring the public that the IRANIANS have not yet deviated.

@-too bad for Obama for spolling the good atmosphere taking shape b/tween Iran and the US and this is another sign that the President is reading from a foreign intelligence source .

@-We know He is only playing an alarmist to scare theArabs into ordering more and more Military tools from the US compnanies yet as a responsible Leader ,He deseaves to guard his tongue .

@ -who will tell this MAN that IRAN is already there! ,and what ties its arms from making the final dash is ISLAM!.

-LONG LIVE THE PERSIAN SAGE of our time LEADER -KAMENEI for reading clearly the minds of the US officials and telling the world how untrustful these people are!.too haughty are these people such that they are ready to trash their own truthfull intelligence on Iran only to 'believe' some unproffesional video set up in Syria by the RATS there and hastly scrambling jets ready to bomb innocent civillians !! basing their claim on that

NO!!---- the world has had enough of this self important dominant power !.the world is tired of lies and lies and false claims from its officials.[the mercilles killings in pakistan,all the wars this entity waged] were all based on false claims!-
LET another just power take center stage!.

@-the world is more than ready to escort History's most boisterious empire into its oblivion and demise!.

and the good knews is that it digs its own grave with each passing day!!.

Recently "Nutanyahu" claimed that Iranian people are not free because they cannot wear jeans,,,,and so on...

Those 'Nutanyahu's" statements should awake his delusional supporters on this blog, who claim that the Islamic Republic is working on a nuclear weapon's program, because "Nutanyahu" has said so....
