Will Bush bomb Iran?

Stephen J. Hadley, the national security adviser, discussed Iran's nuclear program at the White House. A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains frozen.

I had the impression at the Bush press conference this morning that our President was disappointed that the intelligence agencies had discovered that Iran was not working on a bomb. My guess is that he'll just say "screw the intelligence agencies" and go ahead and bomb the Iranians anyway. He's got to do something to secure his legacy.
