In October 2003 the Islamic Republic of Iran admitted that it had secretly been producing highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium. This revelation shocked the world, as did Iran’s further confession that it had been pursuing a clandestine nuclear program for nearly two decades. Throughout 2004, the UN and leading European nations tried to persuade Tehran to abandon its efforts to gain a nuclear weapons capability. As Washington and Tel Aviv looked on, however, the larger question became how to verify the good faith of an avowedly hostile nation, and if all else failed, how to pre-empt the threat by force.
