WASHINGTON—Iran denied United Nations inspectors access to a suspected nuclear site, scientists and documents during a visit to Tehran this week, dimming already scant hopes for a breakthrough to end a standoff over Iran's nuclear work, said diplomats briefed on the International Atomic Energy Agency's mission.

In a sign the visit did little to ease international condemnation of Iran, on Thursday the U.S. Senate Banking Committee approved a sanctions bill to further curb Iran's access to high technology and munitions, intended to help cripple Tehran's energy sector and the businesses of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran's elite military unit.

Are You Surprised?

Did any intelligent person think IR would allow IAEA inspectors to do their job?

That's only what IR's apologists would like you to believe, so they can rake it in while Iranians are suffering under the totalitarian rule of the criminal Mullahs and their Basij and IRGC goons!

I don't want to be right!

And they were supposed to cooperate with IAEA and turn the page, or as Trita said "it was all about jockeying for position before the next round of negotiations!"
