The United States has accused Iran of using a civilian nuclear program as a cover to build atomic weapons, an allegation Tehran denies. The U.N. Security Council is expected to discuss Iran's nuclear program this month, with Washington pressing for penalties.
Full AP-Yahoo News story. D.H.: Bush has a lot of nerve accusing someone else of bluffing to divert attention from his misdeeds.
