US State Department officials estimate that Iran will be unable to develop a nuclear weapon in the next four years despite previous assessments, a congressional document recently disclosed read. According to the Washington Post, the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research pointed stated that Iran would be unable to produce weapons-grade material before 2013.
