President Bush says he believes Iran is still a danger, despite a new U.S. intelligence assessment saying Tehran stopped a secret nuclear weapons program four years ago.
At the White House Tuesday, Mr. Bush said the National Intelligence Estimate findings that Iran stopped the weapons program is a "warning signal" that Tehran could restart the program.
He said the new information is a chance for the United States to rally the international community to pressure Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment program, which could be used to develop fuel for nuclear weapons.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told reporters Tuesday that the United States will continue pushing for new U.N. sanctions on Iran despite the new report. Her words echoed Mr. Bush's call on the international community to isolate Iran - which has denied ever having a nuclear weapons program.
