There is an eerie sense of dejavu that comes over you when you hear these intel reports coming out and the international community questioning the accuracy of the reports. They always say history repeats itself, but did we ever expect that repetition to occur within only three short years?

Transcript (via CNN)

JACK CAFFERTY, CNN ANCHOR: Wolf, "Time's" cover story this week is something called "What War With Iran Would Look Like." "Time" reports there is a growing sense within the administration and high levels of the military that a showdown with Iran may be impossible to avoid. Oh, goody.

Meanwhile, when President Bush goes before the U.N. tomorrow, he is expected to talk about why he thinks Iran is such a big threat. Not everybody thinks Iran is a big deal. The International Atomic Energy Agency complained last week about a House Intelligence Committee report on Iran's nuclear program. It said parts of the report contained, quote, erroneous, misleading and unsubstantiated information, unquote.

But the committee stands by the report, saying that the substance is clear. Iran may not be there yet but they're working on making weapons-grade Uranium. Sound familiar? This is the same jive we were fed in the run-up to the with in Iraq. Remember? It all turned out, thought, that International Atomic Energy Agency was right back then. Iraq didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. And look where we are in Iraq now.

Here is the question, "whom do you trust when it comes to Iran's nuclear program: the U.S. or the International Atomic Energy Agency?" E-mail your thoughts on that to CaffertyFile@CNN.com or go to CNN.com/CaffertyFile, Wolf.
