Iran could make enough fissile for one nuclear bomb in “about 12 days,” a top U.S. Defense Department official said on Tuesday, down from the estimated one year it would have taken while the 2015 Iran nuclear deal was in effect.
Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl made the comment to a House of Representatives hearing when pressed by a Republican lawmaker why the Biden administration had sought to revive the deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)
“Because Iran’s nuclear progress since we left the JCPOA has been remarkable. Back in 2018, when the previous administration decided to leave the JCPOA it would have taken Iran about 12 months to produce one bomb’s worth of fissile material. Now it would take about 12 days,” Kahl, the third ranking Defense Department official, told lawmakers.
“And so I think there is still the view that if you could resolve this issue diplomatically and put constraints back on their nuclear program, it is better than the other options. But right now, the JCPOA is on ice,” Kahl added.
U.S. officials have repeatedly estimated Iran’s breakout time – how long it would take to acquire the fissile material for one bomb if it decided to – at weeks but have not been as specific as Kahl was.

This lie is almost as old as the Holohoax!
But if it were true, I’d hope they drop it on
Nazi-Occupied Palestine aka “israel”!
Israel keeps trotting out this fake headline at regular intervals for the past 20 years in the hopes that zionist puppets in Washington will go to bat for them. Looks like the Washington zionists are stepping up to the plate now. And some states too — like that sold-out scumbag DeSantis.
Fact is: Iran has nukes. Iran has had nukes for over 20 years. I keep hoping they will get their act together and take on zionist Israel while they have the luxury of planning and carrying our their plan. Fact is: Israel keeps committing acts of war against Syria and Iran by attacking them from over Lebanon. This is overt Israeli cowardice for all to see. It’s beyond curious why Russia does not move to stop this fubar, destabilizing Israeli conduct.
Until we deal with this zionist racketeering cult that has taken over banking, governments and the mainstream media — we will have little access to facts. The zionists are absolutely the bad guys. Period. Paragraph.
