In a letter to congress, UN IAEA inspectors characterize a US congressional report on Iranian nuclear capablities as a misrepresentation of the facts.
The inspectors say that they have no evidence of an iranian weapons nuclear weapons program and that the IAEA did not remove weapons inspectors that
concluded iran did have a nuclear weapons program.
VIENNA (Reuters) - U.N. inspectors have protested to the U.S. government and a Congressional committee about a report on Iran's nuclear work,
calling parts of it "outrageous and dishonest", according to a letter obtained by Reuters.
The letter recalled clashes between the IAEA and the Bush administration before the 2003 Iraq war over findings cited by Washington about Iraqi
weapons of mass destruction that proved false, and underlined continued tensions over Iran's dossier.
Sent to the head of the House of Representatives' Select Committee on Intelligence by a senior aide to International Atomic Energy Agency chief
Mohamed ElBaradei, the letter said an August 23 committee report contained serious distortions of IAEA findings on Iran's activity.

This is beginning to sound like iraq all over again. Immediately prior to the invasion of iraq the US dismissed the IAEA inspectors that could find
no evidence of saddam having wmd programs. And up to the present the US still has not found any wmds in iraq. It appears this administration is taking
our country down the same road with respect iran, the wrong road.
