Scurrilous Israeli Claim about Alleged Iranian Military Site Developing Nuclear Weapons

An unnamed official claims pictures "reinforce what Israel has been saying all along....the Iranian nuclear program is not benign."

"He spoke on condition of anonymity pending a formal government response." His anonymity exposes his duplicity to hype fear spuriously.

Iran's perhaps the world's most closely monitored and surveilled country. For years, Washington's done it from space and covertly on the ground. Yet the latest March 2011 annual US intelligence assessment said no evidence suggests an Iranian nuclear weapons development program. 

IAEA inspectors say the same thing. They monitor Iran's nuclear facilities closely and operate cameras in them 24 hours a day. If weapons development were ongoing, they'd have said so long ago.They haven't because no program exists, nor is one likely planned.

Nonetheless, AP said satellite images showed "trucks and earth-moving vehicles at Iran's Parchin military site. Diplomats said the images suggested the trucks could be carting away radioactive material created in nuclear testing." 

They could have been removing garbage, doing routine maintenance work, or numerous other operations all commercial and government facilities perform. AP failed to say so.
