Still under pressure from the US to explain “secret documents” provided to the IAEA about their putative nuclear weapons activities, Iran is insisting they are obvious forgeries that don’t warrant extensive response.
Iran’s statement notes that the documents contain a number of basic errors, as well as a large number of fake names, which they say point toward a certain, unnamed IAEA member as the likely forger.
This is not the first time a document presented against Iran turned out to be a fake, as several of them not only made mistakes about known Iranian nuclear infrastructure, but even basic mistakes on the underlying physics of nuclear fission.
The problem is that in many cases the IAEA ignores the lack of credibility of such documents, and simply keeps throwing the documents at Iran over and over, insisting they don’t consider anything Iran presents as an “official response.”
