26. he speaks for the department of defense.

so to say that the US thinks' they're developing a weapon would contradict what he said.


I think people should stop splitting hairs about this "weapon" vs "program" vs "material for a warhead" crap.

this is what Panetta said. it's pretty clear. It's in the OP but I'll post it again because some people aren't getting it:

"Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No."

Now if they're not trying to develop a nuclear weapon, that means they are not developing a "program" to do so. It means they're not trying to develop nuclear material for a warhead. Could it be more clear? I don't think so.
