Looks like suspicions may have been right and Iran may actually be trying to make weapons. It seem the 5% they would not try exceed has been.
BERLIN (Reuters) - U.N. inspectors have discovered new traces of highly-enriched uranium on nuclear equipment in Iran, deepening suspicions Tehran may still be concealing the full extent of its atomic enrichment program, diplomats said.

Several Western diplomats said there were signs Iran continued to pursue uranium enrichment research in secret and fear the goal is to acquire the capability to produce enriched-uranium fuel for weapons -- a charge Iran denies.

In its April report to the UN Security Council, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it took samples from equipment that had been acquired by a former research center at Lavizan-Shiyan. The center was razed in 2004 before IAEA inspectors could examine it.

With all of the slander going back and forward on pure speculation of Iran's nuclear ambitions. This looks like it may be some hard proof that Iran is up to something sinister. Nothing is 100 % yet but the claims made can be severly damaging to Iran.
