IAEA: Iran Nuclear Program Has 'Possible Military Dimensions'

Monday, November 07, 2011

The International Atomic Energy Agency (I.A.E.A.), an independent organization of weapons inspectors that reports to United Nations, has been preparing a summary of its findings over the past few years which asserts Iran's nuclear program has "possible military dimensions." Despite the continuing non-cooperation of Iran's government during inspections, the I.A.E.A.'s report includes evidence of devices used to trigger nuclear weapons and structures that could be used for testing such weapons. Russia and China are currently pressing the I.A.E.A.'s director, Yukia Amano, not to make the details of their findings public. Amano briefed members of the National Security Council 11 days ago, but the Obama administration has refused to comment at this time.

US-Pakistan Relations Further Complicated After Afghanistan Attacks

Two attacks over the weekend in Afghanistan drew into even sharper relief the challenges of relations between Pakistan and the U.S. One reason: officials pointed to the first attack, in which a suicide bombing of an armored convoy killed 17 people, as a likely calling card not of the Taliban but the Haqqani terrorist network. The Haqqani network is based largely in Pakistan, and the U.S. has accused that country of supporting them. Now, American officials are in the difficult position of asking Pakistan for help in peace negotiations with the Haqqanis.
