Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) on Iraq:
International Atomic Energy head Mohammad Elbaradei walked out of a meeting where he felt a Portuguese diplomat’s speech was insufficiently supportive of his call for new inspections in Iran.
On the other hand, Elbaradei has been critical of the US for pushing confrontation with Tehran.
Despite Elbaradei’s findings that no nuclear material had been diverted from Iran’s civilian nuclear energy research program ( a civilian program is legal under the NPT), Bush keeps insisting that Iran is trying to get a nuclear bomb.
