GREER, S.C. (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson says he's skeptical of a new report that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program four years ago.
Campaigning in South Carolina, the actor and former U.S. senator from Tennessee questioned the United States' ability to gather intelligence.
Thompson suggested that this is information that the Iranians have put out, that they want the United States to relax a little bit.
Thompson's remarks seemed to echo President Bush, who said Iran remained dangerous and the report should be a warning sign that the nation had a weapons program.
