Bush May End Term With Iran Issue Unsettled

Posted by alanmirs on June 21, 2008


WASHINGTON — For more than five years now, President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have made clear that they did not want to leave office with Iran any closer to possessing nuclear weapons than when they took office.

Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, said the United States had not proved that Iran was pursuing nuclear weapons

But with seven months left in this administration, Iran appears ascendant, its political and economic influence growing, its historic foes in Iraq and Afghanistan weakened, and its nuclear program continuing to move forward. So the question now is: Are Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney resigned to leaving Iran more powerful than they found it when they came to office?
