Iran may be constructing a secret uranium enrichment plant outside of international nuclear safeguards, according to a report from the Institute for Science and International Security.
“Although suspicions are increasing that Iran is building a secret centrifuge plant, ISIS assesses that it is unlikely that Iran could currently have such a plant or finish one in the next year,” according to the report yesterday from the Washington-based research group.
Iran is already increasing its stockpiles of 19.75 percent low-enriched uranium which, with further processing, would be enough to fuel a single nuclear bomb “by early next year,” according to ISIS analysts David Albright and Christina Walrond.
If Iran “modestly expands” its capability to make 19.75 percent uranium consistent with its existing plans, it could have enough for a nuclear weapon by the end of 2012, they said. “Production of enough for a second nuclear weapon would take many additional months.

Another alarmist story from another policy bureau, fed to the eager press without having to present one shred of evidence to back up their assertions!
How many times over the last few years have we seen one story after another, all full of If's, Maybe's and conjecture from anonymous sources? The Israelis have been trying to get the rest of us to go bomb Iran for the last decade over the imminent threat that Iran is going to make a nuke and immediately drop it on Israel.
Facts rarely get in the way of American and Israeli fear-mongering and jingoism, especially when it comes to anti-Iran propaganda. For nearly thirty years now, U.S. and Zionist politicians and analysts, along with some of their European allies, have warned that Iranian nuclear weapons capability is just around the corner and that such a possibility would not only be catastrophic for Israel with its 400 nuclear warheads and state-of-the-art killing power supplied by U.S. taxpayers, but that it would also endanger regional dictatorships, Europe, and even the United States.
If these warnings are to be believed, Iran is only a few years away from unveiling a nuclear bomb...and has been for the past three decades. Fittingly, let's begin in 1984.
