Follow us on:

June 27 (Bloomberg) -- Iran has enough enriched uranium to produce two nuclear weapons, CIA Director Leon Panetta said today.

“They clearly are developing their nuclear capability and that raises concerns,” Panetta said on ABC’s “This Week” program. “We think they have enough low-enriched uranium right now for two weapons.”

Israeli officials “feel more strongly that Iran has already made the decision to proceed with the bomb,” Panetta said. The Israelis “are willing to give us the room to try to change Iran diplomatically and culturally and politically.”
