The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog wants in. The International Atomic Energy Agency wants to visit Iran’s nuclear facilities to ascertain whether Tehran is trying to make a nuclear weapon. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano has requested that a team of experts be sent to Iran after his agency released a report last week that provided the strongest evidence yet that an effort is being made toward building a nuclear bomb. Iran insists that its nuclear ambitions are peaceful, but the IAEA report contends that the country even had a structured bomb-making program prior to the end of 2003.
