  • C.I.A. Says an Iranian A-Bomb Can't Be Ruled Out By JAMES RISEN WITH JUDITH MILLER The New York Times (17 January 2000) In a sharp departure from its previous assessment of Iran's nuclear capacity, the Central Intelligence Agency has told senior Clinton administration officials that Iran might now be able to make a nuclear weapon. The more ominous evaluation of Iran's nuclear capacity, is apparently not based on evidence that Iran's indigenous efforts to build a bomb have achieved a breakthrough. Rather, it seems to be based on the fact that the United States cannot track with great certainty increased efforts by Iran to acquire nuclear materials and technology. Analysts at other intelligence agencies believe that Iran's efforts to build its own bomb are still moving slowly. They say there is no evidence that Iran has succeeded in building its own weapon, or that it has stolen or acquired enough fissile material to make one.
