Alireza Jafarzadeh an exiled Iranian dissident who helped uncover nearly two decades of covert nuclear activity in 2002.
Many of the 4000 centrifuges Iran's nuclear facility in Natanz are completely unknown to the IAEA the UN's Nuclear watchdog.
At this point Jafarzadeh claims have not been verified but if true, it is a direct violation of the agreement that Iran has made with the UN.
Iran has manufactured about 4,000 centrifuges capable of enriching uranium to weapons grade, an exiled Iranian dissident who helped uncover nearly two decades of covert nuclear activity in 2002 said Tuesday.
Alireza Jafarzadeh told The Associated Press the centrifuges — which he said are unknown to the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency — are ready to be installed at Iran's nuclear facility in Natanz.
The IAEA did not immediately comment on the centrifuge allegations. The agency previously had said it was aware of the existence of 164 centrifuges at Natanz, 300 miles south of Tehran.

I sincerely hope that his claims are untrue. If they are even remotely close then it means that Iran has been more two-faced than what has been previously believed. It will also invalidate their claims that the nuclear facilities (that they have just reopened) are for power generation instead of uranium enrichment and the development of nuclear weapons.

So what effect could this have on the possibility of a nuclear strike against these centrifuges.

How will the US react?

The U.S. is probably going to call for immediate investigations into it, for whatever reason they will be denied or Iran will stop people from going into certain areas, and some huge thing will break out.

Good timing... NPR just spent this morning discussing the news they were opening new nucleur plants in Iran. It's interesting that these two things come to light at the same time, part of me hopes the guy is making it up but at the same time, if he is I wonder who is paying him to do it.
It's not like news that it's false is going to stop anything.
