IAEA: Iran Has 1,300 Centrifuges Up and Running

IAEA: Iran Has 1,300 Centrifuges Up and Running

April 19, 2007 10:05 AM
Brian Ross Reports:
Jacqueline Shire contributed to this report.
International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors have confirmed through firsthand observation that Iran has over 1,300 centrifuges in operation, a diplomat close to the organization told ABC News.
The finding, noted in an April 18 letter from the IAEA to Iran, confirms earlier ABC News reporting that Iran had drastically increased its capacity to enrich uranium, which can be used for reactor fuel at low levels of enrichment or for nuclear weapons at much higher levels.
In the letter, the IAEA wrote that Iran has claimed to have "eight cascades" operating at the Natanz fuel enrichment plant. Each cascade consists of 164 centrifuges, bringing to just over 1,300 the number of centrifuges Iran is operating. IAEA inspectors have been into the underground cascade halls and seen the centrifuges, the diplomat told ABC News.

In its letter, the IAEA, an intergovernmental body which monitors nuclear efforts around the world, also expressed concern that Iran may be moving ahead with work on its heavy water reactor without submitting to inspections and other verification measures, as it had agreed to. "As Your Excellency's authorities are aware...[the agreement]cannot be modified unilaterally."
ABC News consultant Jacqueline Shire, a senior analyst at the Institute for Science and International Security, noted that the IAEA had earlier sought to install cameras at the Natanz facility in order to monitor activity there. Surprise inspections, she said, involved logistical challenges and may require the group to maintain personnel in Iran on a close to ongoing basis.

I'm on your side. Ahmadijiridoo needs nukes so he will be able to fullfill the destiny God has set before him. But first they have to get that missing Imam out of some well. After that, Shazzam! It's all good.

I wouldn't doubt that the reactor is nothing more than a bomb itself.How many square miles could that take out?No need for fancy rockets.

It's going to take a hell of a lot more centrifuges all operating in a cascade to make a 90% enrichment. At least 10x more than 1300.

Or time. Or an source already enriched. Ya never know.

But give them time.

Besides, even though they're sitting atop some of the greatest petroleum reserves on the planet, they may need enriched uranium, the ore of which they must import. The infamous yellow cake, maybe?

I wouldn't really begin to worry until they get that Imam out of the well. After that, it's lead foil for my boys.

This was all part of your plan, wasn't it?
