Secret Mossad files show underground Iran nuke facility older than admitted

This discovery could be significant because it shows that Iran is still lying to the international community about a nuclear facility that has no reasonable use other than military.

New evidence disclosed in Iran’s secret nuclear files taken by the Mossad show that its underground Fordow nuclear facility is older than it has admitted, according to a think-tank report.

This discovery could be significant, says the Institute for Science and International Security, because it shows that Iran is still lying to the international community about a nuclear facility that has no reasonable use other than military.



The report says that photographs and documents it reviewed from the materials taken from Iran in January 2018 by the Mossad date the facility to as much as five years earlier than the Islamic Republic has led the world to believe.


Iran's nuclear archive shows construction started on Fordow, aka Al Ghadir, as early as 2002, contradicting claims it started in 2007.  

Al Ghadir was being built to produce weapon-grade uranium as part of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, codenamed Amad Superorganizational Plan.   https://t.co/EEjdzvO9E6

In 2009, the international community confronted Tehran with the fact that it had uncovered Fordow, which Iran had worked hard to conceal.

The catching of Iran red-handed building a secret underground nuclear facility at the time was the beginning of what rallied Russia, China and the UN Security Council to pressure the Islamic Republic with sanctions.

Those sanctions eventually led Tehran to sign the 2015 nuclear deal.

As part of the deal, Iran was obligated to disclose all facets of its nuclear program that it had not previously disclosed or regarding which it had provided false information.



Iran indicated that the facility dated back to 2007.

However, its secret nuclear files reviewed by the think-tank show that it may date back to as early as 2002, with extremely strong evidence that it dated back to at least 2004.

The report said that, “Iran’s determination to keep open this deeply buried enrichment site extended into the negotiations over the JCPOA [nuclear deal] and even today, despite the plant having no credible civilian nuclear justification.”



It continued saying, “The Nuclear Archive raises again the deception of Iran about its past nuclear weapons activities and raises profound questions about the true purpose of this facility” in the present and when the deal’s nuclear restrictions expire in the future.

The think-tank slammed the international community for permitting Iran to continue to operate Fordow, saying that “speaks volumes of its failure to first determine and then ensure that Iran’s nuclear program is truly peaceful.”

In an interview with   The Jerusalem Post   in January, the think-tank’s director, David Albright, said that there were 3,000 IR-1 centrifuges for enriching uranium at Fordow which could potentially be used to produce one to two nuclear bombs per year.

Like many issues with Iran, it is these ambiguities which also leave open questions about whether the Islamic Republic could develop more nuclear weapons than expected and at a faster speed.

Iran can't be trusted. Who knew?/S

I think everyone should be more worried about all of the Iran sponsored and trained militias that are growing across the ME and into Africa. Iran may have the capability to produce 1 or 2 nukes a year (maybe); but they have a much higher chance of producing small portable nuclear devices and "dirty" nuclear bombs that they could deploy over their militia network.

There is no chance of "snapping sanctions back in place" like Obama said would happen. Russia and China would block that in the UN Security Council; and NATO is more than thrilled with open trade and Iranian oil.

All we can hope for is the UN inspectors to do their jobs; and come up with evidence that Iran is violating the agreement. That might force Russia, China, and NATO to get back on board with sanctions. Or, Iran might present the world with a fait accompli; sparking a nuclear arms race in the ME with Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

I have no faith in the IAEA, and besides, doesn't the agreement indicate that the IAEA cannot inspect the Iranian military bases, and Iran self-reports on those?  Is there anyone in the world naive enough to believe Iran's self-reporting?  Oh, I think there is - John Kerry.

But this is not about Trump. This is about Iran lying. And Obama being naïve enough to trust Iran, despite nearly everyone else knowing how stupid and foolish that is.

Nice deflection, again, *sigh* to Trump. You just can't control it, can you?

Trump did not negotiate the Iran deal. That was your friends Clinton, Kerry and Obama.

You remember them, right? They were the ones who "trusted" Iran.

There are more than a couple of NT members who are incapable of making a comment without some shot at Trump - even if the article has absolutely nothing to do with him. I don't know if it's some kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder or just clouds in their heads.

I have no faith in the IAEA

Me either; but they are the only hope left.

doesn't the agreement indicate that the IAEA cannot inspect the Iranian military bases, and Iran self-reports on those? 

No, I believe that the IAEA has to give Iran a specified amount of time before the inspection takes place.

Here is what I found- it is from the BBC who normally fact check pretty well.

Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the global nuclear watchdog, continuously monitor Iran's declared nuclear sites and also verify that no fissile material is moved covertly to a secret location to build a bomb.

Iran also agreed to implement the Additional Protocol to their IAEA Safeguards Agreement, which allows inspectors to access any site anywhere in the country they deem suspicious.

Until 2031, Iran will have 24 days to comply with any IAEA access request. If it refuses, an eight-member Joint Commission - including Iran - will rule on the issue. It can decide on punitive steps, including the reimposition of sanctions. A majority vote by the commission suffices.

I have been told that 24 days is not enough time for radioactive traces to decay; even with any attempts to cover them up. That is enough time however to move any sensitive equipment and personnel out of the area; hindering IAEA from doing their jobs.

Again, I don't have any confidence that Russia and China will allow sanctions to be put back in place. Iran, along with North Korea, is part of a quartet they are looking to expand.  NATO might take action if solid evidence is brought forward. If all the IAEA has is some faint traces that radioactive material was present at some time- it will not be nearly enough.

In the meantime, China is there for the oil and Europe is there for the money, so the time is running out for building fallout shelters.  I think if there is one city in the world where I wouldn't want to be living when the time comes, it's Tel Aviv.

When does Israel plan to officially acknowledge the existence of Dimona, sign the NNPT and allow IAEA inspections?
