IAEA: Iran Wasn't Lying


by Steve

Yes, Iran is moving ahead with uranium enrichment in defiance of Security Council resolutions, as any country would that wants to go nuclear and treat their dwindling oil and large gas reserves as an export commodity. But have they lied about their past activities?

Maybe not.

A report from the U.N nuclear watchdog agency on Thursday found Iran to be generally truthful about key aspects of its nuclear history, but it warned that its knowledge of Tehran's present atomic work was shrinking.

And what was Valerie Plame’s CIA front company Brewster Jennings working on at the time the Bush Administration sacrificed their cover?

The message from the IAEA is clear: we need to get back in there to monitor what is going on. The next Democratic administration should place a higher priority on bringing Iran to the table as a player in the region than as a pariah.
