Powell Takes a Stand on Iran

Colin Powell, who famously got slapped down for his statements on Iraqi WMDs… [He may be exonerated one day on that one.-ed. Sooner than you think.]… has nevertheless stepped forward on the issue of Iran, citing evidence the mullahs are indeed pursuing nuclear weapons, according to the WaPo:

The United States has intelligence that Iran is working to adapt missiles to deliver a nuclear weapon, further evidence that the Islamic republic is determined to acquire a nuclear bomb, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said Wednesday.

Separately, an Iranian opposition exile group charged in Paris that Iran is enriching uranium at a secret military facility unknown to U.N. weapons inspectors. Iran has denied seeking to build nuclear weapons.

North Korea, Iran… it’s going to be an interesting year.
