Is IAEA Using Fraudulent Documents on Iran?

GARETH PORTER
The International Atomic Energy Agency released a report on Iran today. Last week, an article by Porter was published by Truthout.org titled “Exclusive Report: Evidence of Iran Nuclear Weapons Program May Be Fraudulent.”

He said today: “The latest IAEA report asserts that Iran has only addressed issues of ‘form’ rather than of ‘substance’ in dealing with the ‘laptop documents,’ which purport to show a covert Iranian nuclear weapons program. Indeed, the IAEA has stated this in every report for the past two years. But my recent article shows that there are substantive facts that contradict the premises of those documents, leaving little room for doubt that they are fraudulent.”

Porter is an investigative journalist and historian specializing in U.S. national security policy. His most recent book is Perils of Dominance: Imbalance of Power and the Road to War in Vietnam.
