Is there any truth to Obama's allegations about Iran's Nuclear Program?

I have written a few times about Iran's nuclear program stating, with supporting evidences, that it is a peaceful one. On the other hand, there are many pro-Israeli propagandists have been suggesting that Iran is close to making her bombs, and all the nonsense imaginable that comes easy with loonies. Obviously, they want to drag the USA into another costly war that would surely write her obituary. As much as the USA was wrong during moron Bush's time with all those false claims about Iraq's WMDs, there is absolutely no truth to Iran's nuclear bombs.

Recently Seymour Hersh, probably the best known investigative journalist in our planet, writes about the issue in the New Yorker magazine, and shows that there is no truth to all the silly and dangerous accusations made by the Obama Administration, the Israelis and their 'Amen Corner' in the Capitol Hill. He writes, "There’s a large body of evidence, however, including some of America’s most highly classified intelligence assessments, suggesting that the U.S. could be in danger of repeating a mistake similar to the one made with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq eight years ago—allowing anxieties about the policies of a tyrannical regime to distort our estimates of the state’s military capacities and intentions. The two most recent National Intelligence Estimates (N.I.E.s) on Iranian nuclear progress have stated that there is no conclusive evidence that Iran has made any effort to build the bomb since 2003."

For a thorough analysis: for and against the issue, you can read the book: Iran (Current Controversies), where my article can be found in chapter 1.
