Skip to comments.Obama says Iran a year or more from nuclear weapon capability

The United States believes Iran is a year or a more away from being able to produce a nuclear weapon, President Barack Obama said in an interview with the Associated Press released on Saturday, although he described the estimate as "conservative."
"Our assessment continues to be a year or more away, and in fact, actually our estimate is probably more conservative than the estimates of Israeli intelligence services," Obama said in reply to a question about the U.S. intelligence assessment of Iran's ability to produce nuclear weapons.
Obama has directed U.S. officials to try to work out an agreement with Iran to allay international concerns about its nuclear program, an opportunity he has said is worth exploring after the election of the relatively moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

If he’s saying a year away, they must have several warheads ready.
They may have shipped some to their buddies in South America already!
For defense, it is more “conservative” to prepare for a worst-case scenario and be ready to act.
“Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battlestation!”
Iran has been 6 months away from nukes since 1974.
Give it up!!! Iran isn’t shooting your dog or crazy ladies in DC. Iran isn’t monitoring your communications and molesting your Mom @ the airport.
If you value freedom, your enemy is not Iran.
Next time Obunga makes a declaration of Iran’s Nuke capabilities it will be “ they will not have a bomb until Jan. 17th 2017, don’t be blaming me”
Roger that. My sentiments exactly.
And it must be accepted that Zer0 is covering for Iran against us.
No . . . Iran just wants to blow up the whole world with nukes so that their Mahdi will come and rescue them. No danger at all.
And just how do you know Iran isn’t behind all of that anyway? The politicians that are currently in power are sympathetic to Iran. Iran also has access to the intarwebs and can hack the NSA if they aren’t actually cooperating with them.
Yup, or even worse than that, their buddies in Mexico.
How long did it take the United States to obtain enough highly-enriched uranium, using 40’s technology, to build the bomb we used on Japan?
I can assure you, it IS accepted.
Obama will do or say anything to preempt the Israelis and take away their initiatives. He even said that US estimates are “more conservative” than Israeli Intel estimates - what a load of rubbish!
Clinton said the same thing about the NORKS and suddenly they were a nuke power.
Obama is holding the Israelis back in the hope that Iran will get the bomb and then it will be too late.
The world will be under Iranian nuke threat soon. Gas will cost $18.56 per gallon.
Obama also said that Obamacare would be cheaper for all of us.
And bozo wants to reduce sanctions against Iran????
Israelis are right to be disgusted with the punk in the WH!
Yes there is that very real possibility too.
Does ANYONE actually believe what odumbo says?
Barack Hussein Obama Our First SWAMP-GAS-American President
it comes out of nowhere,...and is too often mistaken for all manner of things...
one need be PURPOSEFULLY stupid....to be taken in by any of barrys words
"Our assessment continues to be a year or more away, and in fact, actually our estimate is probably more conservative than the estimates of Israeli intelligence services," Obama said in reply to a question about the U.S. intelligence assessment of Iran's ability to produce nuclear weapons.Meanwhile:
Iran does not have the resources to recreate the Manhattan project or design their own modern refining equipment. I doubt they can physically construct a working modern bomb even with uranium in hand.
They can build a primitive bomb but are 100% dependent on imported technology to build it. Unfortunately, humanity typically has no shortage of members willing to sell out to the devil.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
That's a surprise.
Hey Obama, instead of destroying our nuclear arsenal (or is it too late), why not just ship all of our nukes to Iran. Then it won’t take so long for them to build up their nuclear arsenal to use against America (the big Satan), and you can just finish off America quickly instead of dragging out our destruction over the next 3 1/2 years. And after America is destroyed Iran can destroy Israel (the little Satan), and finally we can have world peace. Then you will have finally rightfully earned your Nobel Peace Prize, as well assuring your place in Paradise with your 72 bacha bazis. </sarc>
Is this like groundhog day, or something? Every Monday and Thursday, some idiot pontificates about how long it will take Iran to get the bomb. I’m sure by some prognostications of several years ago, they already got it. They’ll get the bomb eventually, so long as nobody is willing or able to stop them. Israel is willing but not able. America is able but not willing.
