IRAN: U.S. intelligence report on Iran backfires

December 13, 2007 |  6:26 pm

Bush administration officials are beginning to say that the new intelligence report on Iran, which said Iran had halted its secret nuclear weapons program in 2003, has been a setback to U.S. policy.

Zalmay Khalilzad, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said in a speech Thursday in San Diego that the report was "a goal against ourselves."
