the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

yes didn't our intelligence agencies know about the 'secret'?

The head of Iran's nuclear program says the US and its allies labeled Tehran's newly-announced under-construction nuclear plant secretive while the themselves admit they knew about the plan.

"The Americans say that they knew of the new plant prior to Iran's announcement and have presented aerial pictures of the location, so why are they claiming that the project was clandestine?" Ali Akbar Salehi said.


In line with its transparency policy over the country's nuclear program, Iran wrote a letter to the UN nuclear watchdog on September 21, saying that it was constructing a second plant for uranium enrichment. The letter was sent to the IAEA 12 months before the agency's regulations oblige its members states to inform of new developments.

According to the agency's document 153, member states are obliged to inform the body of the existence of enrichment plants 6 months before the introduction of nuclear materials into the facility.

The West, Salehi continued, was seeking to use the Qom plant at a time when they could "gain maximum impact from the issue."
