In a radical about-face, White House officials suddenly discovered Monday, Dec. 3, that Iran had halted it nuclear weapons program four years ago, but has continued to enrich uranium and could have enough material to build a bomb between 2010 and 2015.

Even DEBKA got the word.
AJ Strata has an interesting take on all this:
BS...he has not...
Maybe by “dropping the military option,” they mean from a B-2. We can hope.
I thought I had read that today...it’ll not stop Bush if he decides to hit ‘em. I think he’ll do it once the other groups that are lining up in the ME are in position. Remember that JW article?
I never believed we would hit Iran in the past. I don’t believe we will hit them in the future until attacked. And we will be attacked. The world never learns. Sad for mu children’s generation. The boomer's (I am one but have been conservative for my entire life.) really bought into the commie line. They really screwed things up.
It will be interesting to see how much this affects oil prices, considering how much of it’s present inflated cost is based on speculations about war fears/shortages.
Shhhhhhh... ya’ll here that? It’s the sound of the IAF throttling up.. one can only pray !!
Found most of these thanks to Perdogg.
