Key members of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency reappointed Mohamed ElBaradei for a third term as head of the organization on Monday -- a move backed
by the United States, a longtime critic of the U.N official.
IAEA chief Mohammed ElBaradei was unanimously re-appointed to his position on Monday by members of the UN nuclear watch dog agency, including the
United States. His re-election comes after the Bush administration last week publicly dropped its opposition to him.
Washington had accused ElBaradei of being too "soft" on Iran and of trying to obstruct the invasion of Iraq by questioning U.S. intelligence that
asserted Saddam Hussein had a nuclear arms program.

I suppose that his reappointment will not significantly change the West's view on Iran as the EU's three big powers France, Britain and Germany share
U.S. suspicions that Iran wants nuclear weapons and are determined to prevent Tehran mastering the science of uranium enrichment, a process of
purifying uranium for use as fuel in nuclear power plants or in weapons.
