Seems to me like Bush knew the contents of this report at least up till the date of 17th october 2007 when he says :
“So I’ve told people that if you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from
have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon. I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously.”
He isn't saying they are developing a nuclear bomb anymore, just the 'threat' of , and preventing them from gaining the knowledge to make one.
And now that the NIE report is disclosed, Bush has no option, he HAS to continue to press for actions against Iran . Not only has he articulated a
transition in dialogue that fits the new intelligence data, but to continue to call for action on that point will enable him to say he has not mislead
anybody . He escapes impeachment. Carefully engineered wording and actions may save Mr Bush once again.
