US Joins Israel In Accusing Iran Over Nuclear Program

Accuses Iran of dragging its feet on cooperating

Israel’s Monday allegation that they had “discovered” a super secret Iranian nuclear warehouse, but that there was no evidence to support it because Iran demolished the building months ago, was dismissed with appropriately little fanfare.

But US officials never saw a flimsy accusation against Iran they didn’t love, and on Tuesday said the allegation raises “serious and profound questions” about Iran, while accusing Iran of dragging its feet on IAEA questions.

Iran provides more access to the IAEA than any other nation on the planet, a term of the P5+1 nuclear deal. The US has dishonored the deal, and continues to condemn Iran despite the IAEA affirming Iranian compliance.

The US putting its rubber stamp on an Israeli accusation probably doesn’t change its lack of credibility as far as the world is concerned. Even if some suspected it was true, the building is long gone, along with whatever evidence may have once existed.
