With most of the new International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report on Iran centering around whether or not officials can start some sort of major war on the flimsy pretexts therein, Israeli officials are using it to condemn former IAEA head Mohammed ElBaradei for not providing a similar report in the past.
ElBaradei was quick to deny the charges, of course. In the past he has commented on his time in the IAEA and expressed concern that idle speculation inside reports might be used to start a major war, as was done in Iraq.
His replacement, Amano Yukiya, is seen as a “US ally” and has been far more willing to include random guesses about what might be happening in reports than his predecessor. Needless to say, this sits much better with Israeli officials than the “lets not start a war over nothing” position.
