IAEA head Yukiya Amano represents Western, not global interests fairly. He serves Washington's anti-Iranian agenda. On May 25, he claimed inspectors found Fordo plant enriched uranium traces up to 27%. 

Around 90% is needed for bomb-making. Iran purifies to 20%. Most amounts are around 3.5%. Traces signify nothing. Iran's main stockpile complies with what it claims. No weapons development or production evidence exists.

At times, over-enrichment occurs. It's normal, not unusual or cheating. Technicians adjust accordingly. IAEA inspectors should have left it unmentioned. 

Media scoundrels, of course, jump on it in headlines. Many readers don't go beyond a few paragraphs to know it's insignificant.

On May 25, a Washington Post editorial headlined, "Iran's hard bargain," saying:

Iran rejected Western "confidence-building measures." It demanded rights Washington rejects. "(E)xtended negotiations will only benefit Iran."

"What's most concerning about the Baghdad talks is that they failed to show that the regime of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has made a strategic decision to strike a bargain." 

"Instead, Tehran sought something for nothing: acceptance by the West of its uranium enrichment in return for assertions that it is not seeking nuclear weapons and promises to cooperate with international inspectors."

"In fact, no 'right' to process uranium exists under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty."
