    The IAEA report dealing with the most recent issues e.g., the suspected sanitization of nuclear sites, has not been published yet. The May 24 report is an earlier report for which the work was completed much earlier. The most recent findings were just presented to the IAEA's Board on May 30.

    From the Associated Press this evening:

    The IAEA, the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, presented some of those spy satellite images on Wednesday to the agency's 35-member nation board...

    Wow way to completely miss the point of that post.

    Regarding the lying, I already showed that to be true.
    You showed nothing.

    I posted two articles, one of which cited Parchin and both of which dealt with it.

    With respect to Parchin, the Associated Press reported:

    The senior diplomat told the AP that despite months of apparent "sanitization," the building sheltering a metal pressure chamber where the explosions testing allegedly took place was still standing on the latest satellite images. But he said streams of what appear to be water trickling from inside indicate the chamber was being cleaned as well.

    That's the nuclear trigger research in question. Explosives are the driving force of a nuclear trigger.

    The message dealt with content that predated the current concerns for which the report has not yet been published and won't be published for a few more months.

    Here's the report you're looking for, I believe, which isn't listed on the IAEA site yet.

    You showed nothing.
    LOL okay, yes, the IAEA admission mean't nothing either. These aren't the droids you're looking for. Move along.

    As I stated earlier in this thread, like the IAEA, as will be noted in its forthcoming report, I have concerns about its recent activities. Iran, like any other state, bears the consequences of its choices. That assessment was spot-on. Far from suggesting that there's no evidence of illicit nuclear activities in Iran, Points 39-42 outlined activities for which IAEA is concerned.

    actually, no
    if that were true, given its own stash of nuclear weapons and propensity to cross sovereign borders to initiate attack against its neighbors, there would be no nation on the planet more sanctioned than israel
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    an invasion has been predetermined
    just like with iraq
    fabricate a ruse
    then use that to justify attack, no matter what iran does
    then, if the truth comes out, that iran was not actually a nuclear threat
    the same folks will insist it was an intelligence error
    no matter that they already directed the intelligence agencies to create a portfolio of data to justify the military action despite that there was no genuine threat

    There is absolutely no evidence that anyone is covering up anything. You are speculating that the presence of a bulldozer and the dismantling of small buildings at a military site is signs of a cover up when there is no indication to even suggest so.



    This was already covered in another thread. Regardless, IAEA inspectors do not have complete open door access to anywhere in the country.

    The only people whose concerns would be amplified are those who consider the presence of a bulldozer and some construction work at a site completely unrelated to a nuclear program to be smoking gun evidence of a vast nuclear cover up by the Iranian government, i.e. loonies and liars.



    Iran has cooperated well within the bounds of its obligations to the international community.
    Since Iran - and apparently you - feels it has no obligations to the international community, your statement is meaningless. The international community clearly disagrees.

    I do find it interesting the number of defenders the Iranian nuclear program seems to have on this forum. Must be their splendid record on civil rights in Iran since their 'revolution' that has inspired such confidence.
