The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) has published a portion of an IAEA report that says that Iran has “sufficient information” enabling them to produce a workable nuclear bomb. Back in 2007, intelligence agencies published a report saying that Iran had suspended their quest for a nuclear weapon back in 2003. Now that Obama is President, that farce is no longer needed to hurt Bush and the Republicans politically.

Several Nations including France, Germany and of course Israel never agreed to the claim in 2007 that Iran had ceased operations on their nuclear weapons program. The IAEA report says that the rogue regime is undoubtedly further along than first suspected. From the IAEA report:

“The Agency further assesses that Iran has sufficient information to be able to design and produce a workable implosion nuclear device based upon HEU as the fission fuel. The necessary information was most likely obtained from external sources and probably modified by Iran.

Well that’s interesting, and a shocker to boot; what outside sources could have possibly given Iran the “necessary information” it required? Russia, North Korea? It could be any one of a number of Nations unfriendly towards the U.S. and our allies.

Didn’t the previous administration warn of just such a set of circumstances? But back in 2007 when the United States was preparing to kick off another campaign season, this time with Democrats poised to take back the White House; a curious report is released claiming that Iran had been playing nice, they had stopped their nuclear ambitions all on their own.

Now, with talks ongoing between an appeasement minded American administration and Israel seemingly on its own, Iran discloses that they had built a secret nuclear facility that nobody in the international community knew about. That in itself I find hard to believe. Now the IAEA says not only was the intelligence report from 2007 wrong, it was “completely” ass backwards.

In recent days Iran has test fired Shabab 3 missiles capable of hitting Israel and U.S. interests in the gulf region; the IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear weapons capability specifically mentions the Shabab 3 missile and Iran’s efforts to redesign the Shabab 3 to hold a nuclear payload.

With all of these things adding up, Iran building clandestine nuclear facilities, Obama ready to cave at a moment’s notice, IAEA reports confirming Bush Administration warnings about Iran and it’s desires and capabilities, not to mention these external sources providing materials to Iran unnoticed, somebody needs to step up to the plate and take some decisive action against Iran.

Oh wait, someone is; Chris Dodd and our hapless democratic congress are working on tougher sanctions; because those have worked so well thus far.
