El-Baradei estimated that once Iran's mothballed Natanz underground enrichment plant becomes operational, Iranians could be "a few months" away from a nuclear weapon.
International Atomic Energy Agency officials have said that it would take at least two years for the facility to become fully operational.
You are trying to skirt the issue. FoxNews used the El Baradai quote for their "months away" assesment but left off the inconvenient 2 years part. Whether that 2 years could be removed by importing the uranium does not change the fact that the SOURCE of their quote gives a much different timeline than they do. I don't think that FoxNews is advocating war with Iran, as seems to be the implication from this thread. However, they, just like all of those 24-hour cable news-junkie outlets know what sells and "OMG, Iran might have a nuke in 2008!" doesn't quite rank up there with disappearing white female teenagers on pleasure cruises.

So why did Fox News chose to ommit that fact, and portray the whole thing as Iran being only a few months away from the bomb, from NOW.
