Photos Show New Activity at Iranian Nuclear Site
Fox News correspondent Amy Kellogg gave details Thursday morning on new satellite photos that show what appears to be a cleanup effort at the prospective test location for a nuclear trigger in Iran. Kellogg says the significance of the photos is that international inspectors are worried that the space will be so sanitized if and when they're able to see it, they'll never know what actually went on.
Suspected nuclear tests, presumably with surrogate materials, are believed to have taken place at the facility years ago, but inspectors can't be sure of the existence of more recent activity because they haven't been let back in the facility since 2005.
ISIS (the Institute for Science and
International Security) says they've witnessed cleanup efforts going on for some months at the location, but can't verify whether there were in fact any explosive tests there or that the country is cleaning up the effects of such tests.
This latest development may be the tip of the nuclear program's iceberg, however, as IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said yesterday that the group has identified 12 areas in the country where they need clarification.
