SABOTAGE! KEY IRANIAN NUCLEAR FACILITY HIT?
WND ^

Posted on 01/27/2013 10:35:50 PM PST by deek69

An explosion deep within Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility has destroyed much of the installation and trapped about 240 personnel deep underground, according to a former intelligence officer of the Islamic regime.

The previously secret nuclear site has become a center for Iran’s nuclear activity because of the 2,700 centrifuges enriching uranium to the 20-percent level. A further enrichment to weapons grade would take only weeks, experts say.

To the Iranians: When you see a sign in a nuclear facility that says DO NOT TOUCH! it means just that. Trust me on this guys, I know what I’m talking about.

Every single article on this tracks back to wnd. I have looked everywhere...even on Debka, and cannot find one smidgeon of confirmation about this. Not a hint. Nada.

This sucks....for them. In Tom Clancy's new book he says the virus usually comes in through a flash drive. So your entire network has no physical connection to the internet but you can still get sabotaged

Morning. I’ve said it before and cannot believe no one has thought of it before.

You do not have to penetrate hundreds of feet of rock - you just hammer the entrances ... repeatedly. A 24/7 satellite or drone would be useful.

Keywords for the gubmint: Nuclear, Iran, underground, enrichment, bomb, Israel, bunker buster, centrifuge, secret, weapons grade, etc.

If Israel doesn’t know it, no one knows it. There isn’t even a slight rumor about this anywhere, including al jazeera. No one in the American Iranian community who has contacts still in Iran knows anything either. This would be way too huge to hide for very long, if at all.

One unverified report and an internet echo chamber. I hope it’s true, of course.

Yep, and now it’s been officially denied too.

Iran has denied that any explosion occurred at the facility, claiming in a statement to the official IRNA news agency that reports of the blast were nothing more than “Western propaganda.”

Our security people know. An explosion that large would surely have shown up on one of our monitors somewhere

Don’t know why they aren’t telling us ,but they know.

On another thread when this was first breaking, it appeared that someone found seismic data which confirmed a large vibration in the earth at that time.

(Sorry, did not mark the thread.)

Here is another news source, Business Insider, with more discussion and rumors, also information about a newly approved super bomb the Pentagon has developed for bunker busting. This report is supposed to be 18 hours old.
