Skip to comments.AP Exclusive: Report warns of Iran nuke disaster

The control systems of Iran's Bushehr nuclear plant have been penetrated by a computer worm unleashed last year, according to a foreign intelligence report that warns of a possible Chernobyl-like disaster once the site becomes fully operational.
Russia's envoy to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, also has raised the specter of the 1986 reactor explosion in Ukraine, but suggested last week that the danger had passed.
The report, drawn up by a nation closely monitoring Iran's nuclear program and obtained by The Associated Press, said such conclusions were premature and based on the "casual assessment" of Russian and Iranian scientists at Bushehr.

Is there any truth to the rumor that George W. Bush wrote the computer program for the worm? How else are they going to say it was Bush’s fault?
Prediction : If another “Chernobyl “ takes place AP will finally give “credit” to President Bush and the Israelis for making it happen.
Nuke em til they glow in the dark and shoot en when they light up.
Who cares if Iran has a nuclear disaster?
Anybody downwind from the site?
Those shifty Jews!!!!! /s
Would that really be so bad if it takes out all of the Iranian nuclear scientists and the materiel parts of the program as well as a significant percentage of the “Revolutionary Guard”?
It would likely result in an uprising against the mullahs who approved the program. I doubt another Iranian revolution could be as disasterous as the last one.
Wonder if this is why Hillary had that big meetng.
The usual yahoos here never think about unintended consequences...
You just gotta love those Israelis. Seriously. They knew the United Nations would condemn a military response from Israel, despite Iranian "President" Achmed "I'm-a-dim-nut-job" vowing to use his new nukes to "wipe Israel from the face of the earth."
Go ahead, Nut-Job: Throw the switch. We'll see who gets wiped off the face of the earth. The Israelis smack another one out of the global park.
I was just gonna’ say - if some AQ operative caused a significant nuclear accident in this country we would regard it as an act of nuclear terrorism - and rightly so.
And if we knew - or even strongly suspected - that a national government had aided the effort, we would regard their action - rightly - as an act of war.
Are you kidding? Everyone knows that GWB wasn’t smart enough to write his own name, let alone a computer program. Geesh!
You seriously think that Americans would decide that a serious mishap an AQ compromised reactor on American soil was "our own fault" because we suspected or knew that it had been sabotaged? That we would be giving whoever sabotaged it a pass?
This is like claiming that a coal-fueled power plant will explode because someone shot out the tires of the trucks delivering the coal.
Gee whiz, do you suppose that the Iranians might run and sue somebody over this?
Or maybe file a complaint with the UN?
(You’ll have to excuse me while I ROFLMAO. You have very obviously never heard of the fine old Navy tradition of Dirty Tricks Departments.....our groups’ motto was “We win, You lose, Tough Sh** Charley”.)
Why do you summarily conclude that separate infections at Bushehr did not take place? You have access to intelligence that the rest of us do not?
