The UN atomic agency has found evidence at an underground bunker in Iran that could mean the country has moved closer to producing the uranium threshold needed to arm nuclear missiles, diplomats said Friday.
The International Atomic Energy Agency has found traces of uranium enriched up to 27 percent at Iran's Fordo enrichment plant, the diplomats told The Associated Press.

This one GOES TO ELEVEN !!!
“the find did not necessarily mean that Iran was covertly raising its enrichment threshold toward weapons-grade level.”
Yep, and Obama is the greatest Capitalist America has ever known.
Otherwise, I would mind if Israel was “enrich” a significant portion of Tehran.
Otherwise, I would’nt mind if Israel was “enrich” a significant portion of Tehran.

Sorry brain grimlins.
“The diplomats, who demanded anonymity”
“did not necessarily mean enrichment threshold toward weapons-grade”
Beyond 20% is weapons-grade. All diplomats credible enough to be in this story know that. Why are they hedging?
Why doesn’t the word alleged appear in this story?
How many diplomats? From what country? Those facts wouldn’t compromise anyone’s identity, but they might not help the bent of this story.
This is very thin, no corroboration. Let’s go easy here, it may be true but so little detail is offered.
When dealing with trace amounts, the % is very hard to read. We know they have enriched to 20%, legally. This 27% is speculative and even if true, within laboratory margin of error.
The Israeli PR machine borders on the hysterical at time, trying to goad us into attacking Iran. Haaretz should have higher standards of reporting.
Thank god Iran is a pacifist state or I’d be worried. :)
