IAEA report: Iran continuously worked to produce a nuclear bomb since 2003
Haaretz ^

Posted on 11/08/2011 10:27:07 AM PST by jhpigott

A diplomatic source in the IAEA says this is 'the most damning report ever published by the IAEA and the conclusion arising from it is one: Iran is working to acquire a nuclear weapon.'

Iran has been working toward building a nuclear weapon since 2003, according to a report issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency and obtained by Haaretz.

The IAEA report says Iran is working toward building a nuclear weapon. The report, which was handed over to the 35-member states of the IAEA Board of Governors, details a series of tests, acquisition of materials, and technology which reveals that Iran has continuously worked to produce a nuclear weapon since 2003.

Not that I'm suprised, but this is a little confusing. The last couple of days it was reported that the IAEA report would lay out plenty of circumstantial evidence that Iran was working towards a nuclear weapon, without directly coming to that conclusion. Now, a source from within the IAEA is saying that the report does indeed come to that very conclusion. Looks like ElBaradei was running interference for the Iranians during his tenure as head of the IAEA.

Impossible, I have been assured by Ron Paul supporters that Iran in a primitive backwater and is no where near a nuke...

Next you'll tell me they have orbited a satellite or something...

IAEA suddenly beating the war drum. We’ll be fighting the Iranians alongside the Islamist Turks in six months and Israel will be attacked in the crossfire. Here comes Ottoman Empire II. Iran was a red herring all along.

So the Iranian nuke effort started immediately after the Iraqi nuclear program went missing. Coincidence?

I’m not suggesting Iran isn’t working towards Israel’s destruction or that they’re not a threat to western civilization. I’m saying the IAEA’s (and the U.S. regime’s) sudden interest in stopping them serves three purposes:

1) Prop up the Turks as the single regional power and seat of the reconstituted caliphate.
2) Create a war in an American election year to keep the Islamist usurper in the White House..
3) Provoke Iran to launch on Israel.

When NATO and Turkey take on Syria, we’re past the point of no return and the next great war will be upon us.

Just my $.02. Hope I’m dead wrong.

Well, all I have to say to the IAEA is: No Sh**, Sherlock.

Of course, El Baradai was covering for the Iranians. I don’t care if people think I’m a bigot, but we should never entrust a Muslim with preventing proliferation of weapons. That is like trusting hiring an ex-con prison guard and expecting him not to smuggle contraband.

Just FOUR years ago (12/03/2007), the MSM was TRUMPETING a new National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) that DECLARED with "HIGH CONFIDENCE" that Iran's military nuclear efforts STOPPED in 2003 and had not resumed.

As you can imagine, such reliable sources as the New York Times made ample use of this declaration to beat the Bush'43 Administration bloody about its Middle East policy that centered upon weakening Iran. The fact that this report stated the following is almost mind boggling in its GROSS ERROR; But the new estimate declares with “high confidence” that a military-run Iranian program intended to transform that raw material into a nuclear weapon has been shut down since 2003, and also says with high confidence that the halt “was directed primarily in response to increasing international scrutiny and pressure.”

An interesting point to make here, I personally found this an unbelievable supposition when it came out but I was just a normal citizen so what did I know? Now we know that every appearance has this report as palpably FALSE, yet have any of the authors of this NIE been reassigned or maybe fired? Could it be that they saw the political winds of 2006-2008 and chose their opinions on who their new masters would be in 2009? Surely, I must be mistaken! /sarc
