Bush Says Iran Must Explain Secret Weapons Program


US President George W. Bush called on Iran to explain why it had a secret nuclear weapons program Tuesday.

"Iran is dangerous," Bush said. "We believe Iran had a secret military weapons program, and Iran must explain to the world why they had such a program."

A recent US intelligence report concluded that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program, a claim that is making waves in the efforts to place sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
