In Wake of Intelligence Report, Dems Rap Bush Over Iran

With a recent U.S. intelligence report concluding that Iran has likely halted its nuclear weapons program, the Democratic candidates wasted little time before attacking the Bush administration over its handling of the Iranian nuclear issue — and decrying the president’s response to the report.

The L.A. Times reports on what the candidates said on the matter during a national Public Radio debate:

Senator Hillary Clinton:

Senator Joseph Biden:

John Edwards:

Senator Barack Obama:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich:

According to Newsday, Edwards and Senator Chris Dodd both ripped Hillary for backing a resolution in Congress calling Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization.

“This has to be considered in the context that Senator Clinton has said she agrees with George Bush terminology that we’re in a global war on terror,” Edwards said.

Dodd said that Clinton’s vote “specifically eliminated any option except the military one.”

Clinton, however, said that the resolution caused Iran to reduce its actions in Iraq. “”I think we’ve actually seen the positive effects of having labeled them a terrorist organization,” she said.

Dodd also said that he’s buying his kids Christmas toys from Iowa.
