More Obama language problems

In France, Barack Obama had this to say about Iran:
"Continue your illicit nuclear program and the international community as a whole will ratchet up pressure with stronger and increased sanctions."
But unless Obama is challenging the National Intelligence Estimate, and joining the George Bush's of the world who proclaim that their "intelligence" exceeds that of the so-called "intelligence community" (to whom we pay hundreds of millions of dollars for their "intelligence"), then Iran does not have an "illicit" nuclear program. It has a perfectly legal nuclear program - developing fuel for nuclear power, something it is quite entitled to do as a signatory to the non-proliferation treaty (NPT). Just because bullying from the Western powers has caused the U.N. to demand that Iran stop its legal activities doesn't make them illegal.
