CIA Chief: No Proof of Iranian A-bomb

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) says there is no evidence that proves Tehran is edging towards developing nuclear weapons. Departing CIA Director Michael Hayden said Thursday that the Islamic Republic's production of low-enriched uranium does not necessarily substantiate an Iranian objective to build atomic weaponry.

Not everyone in the US government wants a war with Iran. Hayden has done well here at a time when the White House is talking up the threat of Iran, much in the same way as they did with Iraq's non-existent WMDs.
