WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A confidential analysis by staff of the U.N. nuclear watchdog has concluded that Iran has acquired "sufficient information to be able to design and produce" an atom bomb, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

The Times report was posted on its website hours after Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, arrived in Tehran for talks on a timetable for inspectors to visit a newly disclosed unfinished nuclear enrichment plant.

Iran, which rejects Western charges that it is seeking to build nuclear weapons, held talks with six world powers in Geneva on Thursday. Western officials said that in the talks, Iran had agreed "in principle" to ship out most of its enriched uranium for reprocessing in Russia and France.

The analysis, according to the Times, says the IAEA "assesses that Iran has sufficient information to be able to design and produce a workable implosion nuclear device" based on highly enriched u... >>>

I answered your copy/pasted comment elsewhere.  Mind your own business.

A bitter reminder: propagating lies and persecuting voices of dissent are IRI's procedures for their rule.

It's one thing for you to keep posting pro-IRI news items, something you are entitled to do.  It is entirely another for you to try and shut up others who see things differently.

Grow up and learn something from living outside Iran.

Use a little common sense as to what to believe in what you read. Otherwise you are a very gullable person.

To start with, "A confidential analysis by staff of the U.N. nuclear watchdog" should give you plenty of doubt to the validity of this story. Why would such an official disclose such a controvorsial subject to the public at the time when all the intelligence services of the West and Israel combined are dying to find Iran with anything to convict? Incidently, take IAEA as part of this coalition.

The second hint that should have alarmed your common senses is when you read "The Times said unnamed senior European officials had described the document's conclusions to the paper". Again pointing to ficticious sources!

So, you are believing in an story that originated from an unknown source and then confirmed by more unknown European sources and finally fed to gullible people such as yourself.

You need to pay more attention to what you read and how to interpret its validity in this time and age when the name of the game is "convincing by total news saturation".

I take it you are too educated to fall for what most North Americans fall into in their news consuption. After all, you are a power poster at, use a little more common sense for the sake of yourself and the rest.
