Do Satellite Photos Prove
International inspectors are reportedly trying to gain access to two secret Iranian
military sites. This after these satellite photos and other intelligence
indicate that the country may be trying to develop a nuclear
arms. Well thatís a surprise. Mean time the Iranian opposition now says
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Great to see you, David.
David Asman: Now, we should mention that you and your organization were instrumental in coming up with a lot of this documentation, right?
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Exactly, actually in August of
David Asman: What are we looking at now, Alireza?
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Now the site that you are looking
at is the Hemmat Missile Industries near
David Asman: Now Alireza, before you go any further as we continue to look at these pictures and the experts I guess have verified that this equipment is related to nuclear research, or missile research but why is it that you folks seem to be one step ahead of where the International Atomic Energy Agency is in terms of discovering these things.
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Well, I think itís because the
Iranian opposition has access to information directly within
David Asman: Right, but Alireza what Iím asking is, are they willing, is the IAEA an international organization willing to cut the Iranian government more slack than they should?
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Thatís exactly what I wanted to
get to. Because of the track record of the Iranian opposition, I think what the
IAEA need to doÖThey need to be very firm and try to act very quickly in trying
to inspect the places. Now, under the present agreement that the IAEA has made
David Asman: And correct me if Iím wrong. I heard that Natanz which is one area where there is apparently a lot of nuclear research going on, the IAEA inspectors never even went to some of these sites, is that correct?
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Well, I donít know about that. I
know at least some parts of Natanz they have inspected. But the problem is
this. Iran is having a parallel nuclear weapons program run by the military in
addition to their supposedly benign program and the IAEA can only monitor what
the supposedly benign part, the nuclear energy part is doing but they have no
way of controlling and monitoring what the military part is doing and this is
based on the agreement they have made. The recent resolution that was passed in
David Asman: Now a UN official was speaking to the
New York Times today and he said, Moammar
Gadhafi had a nuclear bomb project. The only reason
we found out about it was because he got scared after we went into
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Thatís exactly the case.
David Asman: And they are not going to tell us unless they feel threatened to tell us.
Alireza Jafarzadeh: And they would never tell
anybody, exactly. And I think this is the key thing. I think we get to the
policy part of it. The
David Asman: Well they certainly donít seem to be threatened by the IAEA at least at this point anyway.
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Absolutely not.
David Asman: Alireza, great to see you. Thanks for coming in.
Alireza Jafarzadeh: Thank you very much David, as always.†
