Still no smoking gun, but don’t expect to let this stop the Bush gang and the neocons from continuing to spread lies about nukes in Iran.
Well, so much for one “casus belli”. The IAEA weighs in with a still classified report on Iran’s nuclear energy program. What a shock! Iran is complying. Anyway, read it for yourself and decide. Count on the Bush Administration to ignore this report and insist that Iran is busy building nukes.
Here is the key conclusion:
22. The Agency is able to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran. Iran has been providing the Agency with access to declared nuclear material, and has provided the required nuclear material accountancy reports in connection with declared nuclear material and facilities. However, the Agency remains unable to verify certain aspects relevant to the scope and nature of Iran’s nuclear programme. It should be noted that since early 2006, the Agency has not received the type of information that Iran had previously been providing, including pursuant to the Additional Protocol, for example information relevant to ongoing advanced centrifuge research.
