WASHINGTON - CIA chief Leon Panetta said Sunday he thinks Iran has enough low-enriched uranium to make two weapons, and that it would take at least two years to prepare the bombs and a delivery system.


"We think they have enough low-enriched uranium for two weapons," Panetta told the ABC network`s "This Week" program, but added that Tehran would need a year to enrich it fully to produce a bomb.


It would take "another year to develop the kind of weapon delivery system in order to make that viable," he said.
