Experts believe Iran could be only 6 months away from having enough weapons-grade material for a nuclear bomb, CNN reports. While there's no indication Iran is preparing to build a bomb, the status of the country's nuclear program remains largely unknown, and its uranium stockpile has the potential to destabilize the region, said a Senate report released yesterday.
"Many nations in the region already fear an ascendant Iran," the report said. "Simply producing a large enough stockpile of low-enriched uranium for weapons could confer on Iran new leverage over the critical region. It also could motivate some of its neighbors to seek their own nuclear capability."
