Senior Israeli minister Ehud Barak says Iran has already developed its nuclear program 'much beyond the level of the Manhattan Project'.
"We suspect they are probably already working on warheads for ground-to-ground missiles," Barak told The Washington Post.
"Our interpretation is that clearly the Iranians are aiming at nuclear capability... We think that they are quite advanced," the Israeli official added.
Barak's remarks come to the contrary of the December 3 US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) which conceded with 'high confidence' that Tehran is not running a nuclear weapons program.

All this hue and cries are baseless allegations to prevent Iranian nation from achieving a milestone in technical advancement of enriching Uranium for peaceful purposes. There has never been any evidence that Iran is building or willing to build WMD.
Iran is a signatory to IAEA and has all the rights to pursue it's uranium enrichment for peaceful purposes and based on that treaty all those countries that have WMD are guilty of non compliance with the treaty for not eliminating their own WMD including USA and of course non signatories to the treaty like Israel.
I mean, ho hum, how many times have we heard this one before ? How are they going to deliver it on the US - on the back of a truck ? I will tell you whats more dangerous than Iran having the bomb - lots of small terrorist groups having a dirty bomb. That is the nightmare scenario for the West. Iran knows very well what will happen to it if it uses its nuclear weapons against the West. But it will give it comfort. Note the US response once North Korea set off its device. All back to the negotiating table. Perhaps this is what Iran wants. In any case, it is any sovereign nations right to have the means to protect itself, specially with rogue nations like the US making threats against them.
