Iran's nuclear program

The IAEA releases a report saying that Iran had engaged in "undisclosed" nuclear activities even after 2004.

I have a little trouble determining the truth behind this report as it deeply involves politics at the IAEA, being the first report issued by the new IAEA head and seemingly abandoning the caution of the Baradei's tenure.

That doesn't mean it's not true or factual, just that the politics make me a little leery of the context of the report.

Iran's Supreme Leader issues a clear statement saying nuclear weapons are against Islam and thus not a goal.

And, the Obama administration seeks to downplay the report,
At a briefing at the White House shortly after the agency’s report was released, senior administration officials said they saw continuing evidence that Iran had to struggle just to keep its uranium-enrichment equipment running. Thousands of centrifuges that it installed at Natanz, its main site for enrichment, are not spinning.

The Obama administration said that Iran was producing only 100 grams a day of enriched uranium, and that even if it could quadruple its capacity it would still need several years to make enough for a weapon.


  • The important thing is to keep repeating the meme.... Iran = nuclear weapons.
