[efoods]The Obama administration Thursday dismissed Iranian claims of enriching uranium at a higher level, possibly high enough to make a nuclear weapon, and said it does not believe that Islamic Republic had the know-how to enrich uranium at the level it claims it can.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Thursday statement is based on politics, not physics.
“He says many things and many of them turn out to be untrue. We do not believe they have the capability to enrich [uranium] to the degree to which they now say they are enriching,” he said.
