A new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency — the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog — indicates Iran is in broad compliance with its nuclear commitments, but also notes with concern indications of construction activity at the Parchin military site, where Iran is suspected of having carried out covert nuclear-related activities in the past.
The document — part of the agency’s routine review of Iran’s program — states that the IAEA “has continued to observe, through satellite imagery, the presence of vehicles, equipment and probable construction materials.”
“In addition,” the report continues, “a small extension to an existing building appears to have been constructed.”
Critics of the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran are likely to seize on this detail of the report.
But don’t believe those crazy critics for even a moment. Iran sent one of their top men — top men! — to check it out, and he swears everything is on the up-and-up.
