Uranium and Beeswax

Too bad ol’ Doc Prather is retired now. If he wasn’t, I guarantee to you that he would point out that buried in all the scaremongering about what Iran ‘may’ be up to, the new IAEA report [.pdf] says:

‘[T]he Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material at the nuclear facilities and LOFs [locations outside facilities where nuclear material is customarily used] declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement.’

He might also point out that all the implosion systems in the world are worthless without some actual fissile material to implode, and that nothing else in the IAEA report is any of the IAEA’s ‘beeswax’ (That’s a funny way of saying ‘business’ for those readers who didn’t grow up on American playgrounds.) He’d be right.
