No "Shred of Evidence" Iran Building Nukes, Ex-Head of IAEA Says

The former Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) said in a new published report that he had not seen "a shred of evidence" that Iran was "building nuclear-weapons facilities and using enriched materials."

Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient who spent 12 years at the IAEA, told investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, "I don't believe Iran is a clear and present danger. All I see is the hype about the threat posed by Iran."

El Baradei, who is now a candidate for the presidency of Egypt, added, "The core issue is mutual lack of trust. I believe there will be no solution until the day that the United States and Iran sit down together to discuss the issues and put pressure on each other to find a solution."

El Baradei's remarks are contained in an article by Hersh titled "Iran And The Bomb," published in the June 6th issue of The New Yorker magazine.

Hersh points out that the last two U.S. National Intelligence Estimates (N.I.E.s) on Iranian nuclear progress "have stated that there is no conclusive evidence that Iran has made any effort to build the bomb since 2003."

An N.I.E. Report supposedly represents the best judgment of the senior offices from all the major American intelligence agencies.

The latest report, which came out this year and remains highly classified, is said by Hersh to reinforce the conclusion of the last N.I.E. Report of 2007, that "Iran halted weaponization in 2003."

A retired senior intelligence officer, speaking of the latest N.I.E. Report, told Hersh, "The important thing is that nothing substantially new has been learned in the last four years, and none of our efforts---informants, penetrations, planting of sensors---leads to a bomb."

I've looked myself at the claims and counter claims, and the available evidence. Those who say Iran nearly has enough enriched Uranium to build a bomb conveniently leave out the fact that the enriched Uranium they have is not enriched to bomb grade material. Its for their power reactor that will produce electrical energy and their research reactor which will be used to make isotopes for medicine and industry. 

 

They are also building a small heavy water moderated experimental reactor that could be used to produce weapons grade Plutonium, but its very small and it would take a long time to produce enough for one bomb. That assumes that they would kick out the IAEA inspectors and process the fuel in secrecy. 

 

If any nation has evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weapons they are obligated to give it to the UN. That they have not shows the MSM accusations to be propaganda. If the UN doesn't know and the governments have not provided any secret information, then how could the media know?

Cranford Ducain commented on Boris's page ALERT: Global elites are declaring war on the nuclear family! Here's the BBC going beyond cuckolding to push "platonic parenting" where strangers have babies together and each get part-time custody.
"I can see how the woman is "fine" with this kind of arrangement. I wonder if she would feel the same way if one of the guys brought over another woman with his other kids. Some people are just 'funny" that way."

"She may be confusing the tern "run train" with the phrase  to "pull a train", you know when two guys share a girl between the two of them. She does appear to me to be the type who would know a lot about such things."
