"Obama Would Regret His Accusations"

"Bluntly confronting Iran, President Barack Obama and the leaders of France and Britain accused the Islamic republic Friday of clandestinely building an underground plant to make nuclear fuel that could be used to build an atomic bomb.

"The size and configuration of this facility is inconsistent with a peaceful program," Obama said of the formerly secret site, warning of severe consequences if Iran does not come clean about its nuclear efforts and intentions.

He and the other leaders revealed and condemned the plant's existence in a dramatic early morning appearance at a world leaders' summit that was otherwise focused on recovery from the global economic meltdown. They demanded that Iran open all nuclear sites for inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Unbowed, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said his country had done nothing wrong and Obama would regret his accusations." -- Associated Press
