Nuclear program in Iran

Interesting observation by Charles at LGF over this news item from Yahoo/Reuters: bq. Iran's Revolutionary Guards are overseeing some 400 nuclear experts in order to prevent further leaks of sensitive information about Tehran's atomic facilities, an Iranian exile and informed diplomats said. bq. Alireza Jafarzadeh, who disclosed in August 2002 that Iran had a hidden uranium enrichment facility at Natanz and a heavy water plant at Arak, told Reuters his new information came from the same sources who told him about Natanz and Arak. bq. "According to the latest information I have from well-placed sources inside Iran, some 400 nuclear experts are now under the control and supervision of the Revolutionary Guards," he said. Charles comment is this: bq. If true, this is disturbing. The sudden imposition of strict military control over Iranís scientists may mean that Iranís A-bomb project is nearing its conclusion. They certainly don't need nuclear power... Posted by DaveH at April 27, 2004 2:14 PM
