Iranian scientists have run computer simulations for a nuclear weapon that would produce more than triple the explosive force of the World War II bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, according to a diagram obtained by The Associated Press.

The diagram was leaked by officials from a country critical of Iran’s atomic program to bolster their arguments that Iran’s nuclear program must be halted before it produces a weapon. The officials provided the diagram only on condition that they and their country not be named. The International Atomic Energy Agency — the Vienna-based U.N. nuclear watchdog — reported last year that it had obtained diagrams indicating that Iran was calculating the “nuclear explosive yield” of potential weapons. A senior diplomat who is considered neutral on the issue confirmed that the graph obtained by the AP was indeed one of those cited by the IAEA in that report. He spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the issue.

Could very well be. Just to get the war mongering going again.

I saw the graph... looks like something copied out of a text book...

Still I have some experience in the monitoring field. checked the DTRA event tracker and found zip Nada nothing...Check it yourself

It has been posted but I think it lacks the attention it deserves. News outlets are using this obscure image that could have been created by anyone as evidence of the Iranian bomb development.

I see the Daily Mail ran with this story, doesn't surprise me at all.
