While the U.S. struggles to find concrete proof of Iraq's banned weapons programs, there's new evidence of Iran and North Korea's nuclear ambitions."After assuring the White House for months that North Korea had not begun producing plutonium for nuclear weapons, American intelligence officials changed their assessment," the New York Times reports.Meanwhile, the Bush Administration, citing increased concerns about Iran's Natanz uranium-enrichment plant are pressing International Atomic Energy Agency board members to declare that Iran has violated the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty."Such a finding could lead to punitive action by the United Nations, adding pressure on Iran, which is already nervous about American troops in Iraq," the Times says. "The atomic energy agency is to meet on the matter next month."
