“A National Intelligence Estimate released last month indicating that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 has reopened a simmering debate over how the Bush administration shapes intelligence findings to fit its policy objectives.

But it has also drawn attention to how such intelligence is presented. Buried deep into the 140-page Iran NIE was another conclusion: that Tehran had previously been working to build an nuclear bomb and still had some of the elements for a weapons program.” (NPR)
