    Sources: UN watchdog hiding evidence of Iran nukes program - Haaretz - Israel News

    Sources: UN watchdog hiding evidence of Iran nukes program

    By Barak Ravid, Haaretz Correspondent

    The world's nuclear weapons watchdog is hiding data on Iran's drive to obtain nuclear arms, senior Western diplomats and Israeli officials told Haaretz.

    The officials and diplomats said that the International Atomic Energy Agency under Director General Mohamed ElBaradei was refraining from publishing evidence obtained by its inspectors over the past few months that indicate Iran was pursuing information about weaponization efforts and a military nuclear program.

    ElBaradei, who will soon vacate his post, has said that the agency does not have any evidence that suggests Iran is developing a nuclear weapon.

    But the sources told Haaretz that the new evidence was submitted to the IAEA in a classified annex written by its inspectors in the Islamic Republic. The report was said to have been signed by the head of the IAEA team in Iran.

    The classified report, according to the sources, was not incorporated into the agency's published reports. The details, they said, were censored by senior officials of the IAEA in the organization's Vienna headquarters.

    KevinKenndy posted a thread about the alleged lack of evidence that iran is building nuclear weapons. He might want to retract that claim, and if this story is true, then ElBaradei is a bonafide fraud and potential criminal.

    Please somebody tell us how all of this is Bush's fault. I know it's coming. I can hear the liberals tapping on their keyboards now...

    I am really interested how the next sessions in September will play.

    Baradei is on his way to retirement.

    Iran is on the way to a nuclear weapon. (my opinion)

    What will the European and US politicians put on the table?

    I don't know about Obama, but Clinton wrote the religious guidelines for public school with a man currently in jail for terrorism. Along with Clinton's appointed judge Hamilton, teachers can now have our kids on their hands and knees praying and worshipping Allah *in demonstration*, but memorized by heart just the same.

    That was worth more than 100 suicide bombers.

    I guess the question comes down to WHY would ElBaradei choose to obfuscate and withhold evidence, information that has been suspected for quite some time?

    If evidence was handled this way by, say the police, they would be imprisoned for doing so. Is it possible that one day ElBaradei could be tried and convicted for this treachery...

    Further, it basically makes the incoming IAEA head look like he is either stupid, or a fool - but incompetent and out of the loop at best, since he re-iterated what ElBaradei said, that: "there is no evidence of a nuclear weapons program." So either he too was lying, or was considered incompetent by the IAEA staff, and prevented from being told.

    Off topic? Not. Rhodes asked what they would put on the table and I'm just hoping it won't be our kids again.

    I don't think ElBaradei will be held accountable any more than Sandy Berger was
