Iran Blocks U.N. Nuclear Inspectors


online.wsj.com

WASHINGTON—Iran denied United Nations inspectors access to a suspected nuclear site, scientists and documents during a visit to Tehran this week, dimming already scant hopes for a breakthrough to end a standoff over Iran's nuclear work, said diplomats briefed on the International Atomic Energy Agency's mission.

Something doesn't add up. (of course)

They are accused of creating the bomb, they allow inspectors in and are under watch, nothing is found, they kick them out, more rhetoric, they say they want nuclear talks, they allow them back in, kick them out and repeat. Now they are barred from entering a suspect location of their Nuclear Programme.

This still may or may not be "true". WSJ is the only source I can find ATM..

Article from Iran's PressTV last week:

Sat Jan 28, 2012 8:1AM GMT -- PressTV

The team, led by the IAEA Deputy Director General Herman Nackaerts and the agency's number two Rafael Grossi, will arrive in Tehran on Sunday at the invitation of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI).

The visit is aimed at holding talks within the framework of the IAEA article of association to bolster cooperation between the two sides by resolving ambiguities.

A NYTimes article is worded a little differently

Published: February 3, 2012

Members of the I.A.E.A. delegation were told that they could not have access to Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, an academic who is widely believed to be in charge of important elements of the suspected weaponization program, and that they could not visit a military site where the agency’s report suggested key experiments on weapons technology might have been carried out.



“The agency expressed interest in all the areas of concern,” said a diplomat based in Vienna, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “The team asked for [color=gold]access in the future to different types of sites and personnel, and that was denied.”

None of it makes any sense, it never did. The only thing I can make sense of is me being sick & tired of hearing about Iran, nukes, Israel, the UN, the USA, all everything else mixed in between.

If true...

All Iran's leaders are doing is bringing it that much closer to war on their doorsteps and people on all sides will die


PEACE

Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal is at it again. It joins the Likudnik-choir and vilfies a Middle Eastern country and it's leaders. When unsourced articles like this one appear in the press it is always a good verification measure to go directly to the involved players.

Here is the press release from the IAEA.

Press Statement
IAEA-Iran Discussions in Tehran, 29-31 January 2012




1 February 2012 | Meetings between the IAEA and Iran were held in Tehran from 29 to 31 January 2012, aimed at resolving all outstanding substantive issues. Another meeting will take place in Tehran from 21 to 22 February 2012.

The IAEA explained its concerns and identified its priorities, which focus on the clarification of possible military dimensions to Iran's nuclear programme. The IAEA also discussed with Iran the topics and initial steps to be taken, as well as associated modalities. "The Agency is committed to intensifying dialogue. It remains essential to make progress on substantive issues," IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said.

And here is the a bit more info, what Herman Nackaerts, Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency had to say about his trip:

UN nuclear official: 'Good trip' to Iran

Here a video from AlJazeera in which Nackaerts gives a very short interview after his trip to Iran.


Info about the important new allegations from the IAEA-report Nov. 2011. - Those allegations were based upon documents retrieved from the “Iranian laptop of death”. This laptop was handed over to the US in 2004 from an Iranian citizen. He claimed to have stolen it from an Iranian nuclear technician. Like those "yellowcake uranium documents" which leaked before the Iraq war, those laptop documents are likely forgeries.

Not really doublespeak...


The U.S. was waiting for the right reason. The U.N. just delivered it on a silver platter.

But visiting the sites wasn`t on the agenda this time.

They are going back Feb 24 , 25 around then to look at sites.

The WSJ lied again, and as usual everybody believed them.

They are making a mockery of the IAEA. What a waste, and if Iran was creating nuclear energy for the purpose of civilian use? What is up with all the restrictions on these visits, secrecy, and doubletalk? Iran has been given another olive branch with this latest visit, but they go back to their old ways? One would think that with all the war drumming they would leave no stone unturned, and allow for unfettered access to whatever area these inspectors want to look at? As you can see I have a whole lot of questions about this charade.

Iran is playing a dangerous game. Time is running out, and the only next viable alternative is armed conflict. The international community has stated that fact. It is not just Israel and the US doing the barking, but members of the European Union have voiced concern as well.

Keep playing the games. Sooner or later their opponents are going to figure out the parlor tricks. I hope they can resolve their differences, and get back to full disclosure of this nuclear program. If Iran is concerned about the findings being distorted or trumped-up? Why not have their own media people accompany the inspectors? They won't, and I do believe Iran is hiding something. If they have nothing to hide? Then why all the secrecy?
