US Democrats: Time for new Iran policy
Wed, 05 Dec 2007 01:23:46


Senior US Democrats urge President George W. Bush to consider 'a top-to-bottom review of his Iran policy' after the US intelligence report.

Now that the intelligence community has confirmed there is no evidence Tehran is pursuing nuclear arms 'President Bush's heated rhetoric on Iran, including comments about a potential World War Three, is even more outrageous,€ said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

"He should announce that his Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense are prepared to meet anytime, anywhere with their Iranian counterparts to conduct vigorous diplomacy to advance US interests," he added.

Meanwhile, US Democratic presidential candidates have criticized President Bush's claim that 'nothing has changed' despite the new report.

"This president will not let facts get in the way of his ideology,'' said Senator Barack Obama. €They should have stopped the saber rattling, should never have started it,'' he added.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton also said Bush "should seize this opportunity'' while her rival Senator Joe Biden termed Bush as 'not trustworthy'.
