NYT: accessory to crime

New York Times seems to have become an accessory to The Architecture of Perpetual Wars. This time, NYT's distorts IAEA's report on Iran's Nuclear Program! (source: payvand news.) You should ask yourselves why Americans are distorting these FACTS in the name of journalism?!?!!! Militarism may be the real answer! (Thanks to filasteen.wordpress.com!) But, Do we have the courage to stop the war with Iran? Remember to try the poll!

Here's the truth of the ACTUAL developments between IAEA and Iran. The text (copied in full here) is available on the IAEA web site.

Understandings of The Islamic Republic of Iran and the IAEA on the Modalities of Resolution of the Outstanding Issues Tehran – 21 August 2007

Pursuant to the negotiations between H.E. Dr. Larijani, I. R. of Iran's Secretary of Supreme National Security Council and H.E. Dr. ElBaradei, Director General of the IAEA, in Vienna; following the initiative and good will of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the agreement made, a high ranking delegation consisting of the directors of technical, legal and political departments of the IAEA, paid a visit to Tehran from 11 to 12 July 2007 during which “Understandings of The Islamic Republic of Iran and the IAEA on the Modalities of Resolution of the Outstanding Issues, Tehran 12 July 2007” were prepared.

A second meeting took place in Vienna on 24 July 2007 followed by a further meeting in Iran from 20 to 21 August 2007. The Agency's delegation had the opportunity to have meetings with H.E. Dr. Larijani during both visits to Tehran. Following these three consecutive meetings, both Parties reached the following understandings:
I. Latest Developments:
Based on the modalities agreed upon on 12 July 2007, the following decisions were made:
1. Present Issues:
A. Enrichment Programme
The Agency and Iran agreed to cooperate in preparing the safeguards approach for the Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant in accordance with Iran's Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement. The draft text of the safeguards approach paper, and the facility attachment of IRN- were provided to Iran on 23 July 2007. The safeguards approach and the facility attachment were discussed during technical meetings in Iran between the Agency and the AEOI from 6 to 8 August 2007. Further discussions will be held with the aim of finalizing the facility attachment by the end of September 2007.

B. Heavy Water Research Reactor in Arak
Iran agreed with the Agency's request to visit the heavy water research reactor (IR40) site in Arak. A successful visit took place on 30 July 2007.

C. Designation of new inspectors
On 12 July 2007,
Iran accepted the designation of five additional inspectors.

D. Issue of multiple entry visas
On 12 July 2007,
Iran agreed to issue one year multiple entry visas for 14 inspectors and staff of the Agency.

2. Past Outstanding Issues:

A. Plutonium Experiments
In order to conclude and close the file of the issue of plutonium (Pu), the Agency provided Iran with the remaining questions on 23 July 2007. During a meeting in Iran between representatives of the Agency and Iran,
Iran provided clarifications to the Agency that helped to explain the remaining questions. In addition, on 7 August 2007, Iran sent a letter to the Agency providing additional clarifications to some of the questions. On 20 August 2007 the Agency stated that earlier statements made by Iran are consistent with the Agency’s findings, and thus this matter is resolved. This will be communicated officially by the Agency to Iran through a letter.

B. Issue of P1-P2:
Based on agreed modalities of 12 July 2007,
Iran and the Agency agreed the following procedural steps to resolve the P1-P2 issue. The proposed timeline assumes that the Agency announces the closure of the Pu-experiments outstanding issue by 31 August 2007, and its subsequent reporting in the Director General’s report to the September 2007 Board of Governors.

The Agency will provide all remaining questions on this issue by 31 August 2007. Iran and the Agency will have discussions in Iran on 24-25 September 2007 to clarify the questions provided. This will be followed up by a further meeting in mid-October 2007 to further clarify the written answers provided. The Agency's target date for the closure of this issue is November 2007.

C. Source of Contamination
Based on the agreed modalities on 12 July 2007 and
given the Agency's findings which tend, on balance, to support Iran's statement about the foreign origin of the observed HEU contamination, the only remaining outstanding issue on contamination is the contamination found at a Technical University in Tehran. Iran and the Agency agreed on the following procedural steps to address this issue, starting once the P1-P2 issue is concluded and the file is closed. The Agency will again provide Iran with the remaining questions regarding the contamination found at a Technical University in Tehran by 15 September 2007. After 2 weeks of the closure of the P1-P2 issue Iran and the Agency will have discussions in Iran on this issue.

D. U Metal Document
Upon the request of the Agency, Iran agreed to cooperate with the Agency in facilitating the comparison of the relevant sections of the document. Iran is presently reviewing the proposals already made during the first meeting on 12 July 2007. After taking this step by Iran, the Agency undertakes to close this issue.

II. Modalities of Resolution of other Outstanding Issues
A. Po210
Based on agreed modalities of 12 July 2007, Iran agreed to deal with this issue, once all the above mentioned issues are concluded and their files are closed. Iran and the Agency agreed upon the following procedural steps: regarding this issue, the Agency will provide Iran in writing with all its remaining questions by 15 September 2007. After 2 weeks from conclusion and closure of the issues of the source of contamination and U-metal, reflected in the Director General's report to the Board of Governors, Iran and the Agency will have discussions in Iran where Iran will provide explanations on the Po210.
B. Ghachine Mine
Based on agreed modalities of 12 July 2007, Iran agreed to deal with this issue, once the issue of Po210 is concluded and its file is closed. Iran and the Agency agreed upon the following procedural steps: regarding this issue, the Agency will provide Iran in writing with all its remaining questions by 15 September 2007. After 2 weeks from conclusion and closure of the issue of Po210, reflected in the Director General's report to the Board of Governors, Iran and the Agency will have discussions in Iran where Iran will provide explanations to the Agency about Ghachine Mine.

III. Alleged Studies
Iran reiterated that it considers the following alleged studies as politically motivated and baseless allegations. The Agency will however provide Iran with access to the documentation it has in its possession regarding: the Green Salt Project, the high explosive testing and the missile re-entry vehicle. As a sign of good will and cooperation with the Agency, upon receiving all related documents, Iran will review and inform the Agency of its assessment.

IV. General Understandings
  1. These modalities cover all remaining issues and the Agency confirmed that there are no other remaining issues and ambiguities regarding Iran's past nuclear program and activities.
  2. The Agency agreed to provide Iran with all remaining questions according to the above work plan. This means that after receiving the questions, no other questions are left. Iran will provide the Agency with the required clarifications and information.
  3. The Agency's delegation is of the view that the agreement on the above issues shall further promote the efficiency of the implementation of safeguards in Iran and its ability to conclude the exclusive peaceful nature of the Iran's nuclear activities.
  4. The Agency has been able to verify the non-diversion of the declared nuclear materials at the enrichment facilities in Iran and has therefore concluded that it remains in peaceful use.
  5. The Agency and Iran agreed that after the implementation of the above work plan agreed modalities for resolving the outstanding issues, the implementation of safeguards in Iran will be conducted in a routine manner.

Pen,

I took the liberty of rejecting your equally war-mongering rhetoric. Sorry!

Monica Thatcher said...

I would hope that most level headed Iranians dont believe that the world listens to what the Americans say. In the same way that i would hope that the world believe that all Iranians dont want to burn everyone who isn't a Muslim. Nice to meet you too:)

Naj said...

Hi Monica,

As far as I know, even the most extremist of Iranians do not want to burn anyone who is not Muslim! They sort of think that those who are not Muslim will burn in hell; but they have no plans to replace god's Hell with one on earth!

The "burning the infidel", I am afraid is not a Muslim practice! Yet it is a disinformation ingrained in the minds of even the progressives amongst us!

All this nonsense about "nuclear Holocaust" is a BULLSHIT ... repeated so OFTEN that some have begun believing it!

Iran has NOT engaged in the acts of hostility against any nation in its modern history! But Iran will DEFEND itself, should she be forced to.

I feel bad to have rejected my friend's response and he is upset now and I don't like that and so here I post it; but I add a bit of my own comments in between:
=================================
naj:

US does not care about the Iranian nuclear issue; that was just an instrumentality to try to extract concessions out of Iran.

I agree with this point

Iran is contesting with US over the future of Iraq and indeed the Middle East.

correct

US will have to attack Iran since her positions in Iraq, Lebanon, and Palestine have collapsed.

No it doesn't HAVE to attack Iran, if she works with Iran, all that region will have a better future

While US cannot regain the initiative - being against Islam - she will try to prevent other state actors to take advantage of the situation.

I disagree about US being against Islam. I think they are demonizing Islam in order to find justification for their geopolitical expansionism!

To wit: US will attack us to weaken us, we will retaliate and the war will commence.

and that will be a TERRIBLE thing for all!

The end of this war will be the rejection of US out of the Persian Gulf and the Levant - God Willing.

No, I don't believe that!

Ya Ali.

=================================

and the rejection of the above comment happened in the context of this comment:
---------------
naj:

Americans are a deeply divided and prejudiced (aganist Islam) people. And they think they can win. They will have to be disabused of their fantasy notions.

I am not sure they are against Islam, any more than they are against communism. They are just AFRAID of ghosts that they do not know and are not clever and brave enough to EXPLORE things other than britney spears!!

But look at the bright side: the US aatcj on Iran brings the day of liberation of Al Quds that much closer.

liberation of Quds from WHAT?!!

RickB said...

Thanks for the heads up Naj, I have in fact reproduced this report on my site as I think it (and the emphasis) make a clear point and the more people read the actual report as opposed to let the media 'interpret' it for them, the less misinformed the populace will be.

enigma4ever said...

Dear naj,
I am so sorry that this post, that you have to write it, and set us straight.....and presented really solid facts...I too wish the MSM would present the facts and also that more Americans would read foriegn papers and pay attention to the Truth, and recognize no World authorities or Leaders or Military or State experts support the Buscho Idealogy ( or lunacy). Iraq was the first insane stupid manuever, and NO I don't want to see Iran be next. Bush is acting like a Dictator....

I was very glad to see Britian pull troops this week, I think that helps to send a messege to DC.

Naj- I am so sorry that people do not understand and are not even intellectually sensitive enough in some of their comments here- it breaks my heart- that Americans could and do act that way...

I am sorry....

Oh, I forgot to say that I am forwarding your post to Anderson Cooper of CNN ( he is the only one there I respect or trust) and also Keith Olbermann at MSNBC....

Amre El-Abyad said...

you see Naj, that is why we have to be enemis. Arabs MUST MASSACRE THE PERSIANS. yOU ARE IRANIANS AN ALLIEN FOREIGN BLOOD AND CULTURE TO US. AND YOU WANT TO HAVE A SAY ON THE FUTURE OF THE CENTRE OF ARAB NATIONALISM , AN ARAB COUNTRY THAT IS SO PRECIOUS IN TH HEART OF ALL ARABS TO SEE IT RULED BY PEOPLE LIKE iRANIANS.

It wont happen it cant happen.....dont believe the irani state propaganda, just do an unbiased research on the internet on the military potentials and capabilities of Egypt and to lesser extent jordan( saudis are the cash bank) and you will know your limits.

You only manage to stand up to America because of the Iraqi resistance. You mustn't forget that.

And dont forget that the much smaller Iraq defeated Iran and killed Khomeini after an 8 years war.

Dont publish th comment. But please post something rational and logical, that would respond to my points, even if it will be in a different context.

Blogging, after all, is about curiosity

Thanx and please dont call me names...forget that Iam an Egyptian enemy and that you are an Iranian enemy,let's focus on the objective points

thanx for listening

I agree that most Americans are not prejudiced against Muslims or Islam.

It is the extreme religious zealots who are the ones pushing for invasion or attack of Iran.

It is in my opinion for two reasons.

The first is to control the oil in the Middle East and

The second of course is as how you see it. Expansion of empire and global control throughout the region and earth.

Blacks and Hispanics face racism and bigotry daily here in America by those who want to preserve a pure white race as Hitler did in Nazi Germany.

The sad part is that not everyone who is eligible to vote ever vote. They feel quite frankly that their votes don't count and I'm afraid that this is most likely the case.

There have been two elections stolen by the RFN's and it is for that reason that we now face our darkest time in History since the Civil War.

I'm afraid that this will have too play out before sanity returns to our Nation. Only then can we hope to rebuild a Nation of the people, by the people and for the people.

No matter what their race, creed, color or religion.

God Bless.

Naj said...

Hi enigma, thanks for disconfusing me about which of your blogs to roll :)

and thanks for spreading the word.

I am sure Anderson Cooper can open the PDF document and read it originally from the IAEA web site!

Naj said...

Anon,

I disagree with you and with my friend Pen, that there is no way out of this sanilty! there is one way out:
for the people of America to UPRISE and say ENOUGH!!!

I am sure they won't be over run by tanks! Are Americans so afraid of the way their human rights may get violated that they are not lifting a finger???!!!!!

ANY AMERICAN WHO IS SILENT is an accomplice!

QUASAR9 said...

Hi naj, one does wonder though
though clearly nuclear power is a necessary & symbolic manifestation of technological maturity for a growing economy - should we not also be dedicating equal resources to alternative energy sources.

Naj said...

To the little egyptian "enemy" as he calls himself:

"And dont forget that the much smaller Iraq defeated Iran and killed Khomeini after an 8 years war."

Where do you get your so called "objective" facts from? Planet Neptune?

Larry said...

Naj,

Thanks for making us aware of the details of Bush's lies to war approach against Iran.

I have been trying to spread the message to other blogs with a link to your blog to read your post.

This future war must be stopped.

Naj said...

Quasar,

Absolutely!

And in fact, Iran has been investing significantly in hydroenergy and in wind power! It has also been trying to change the people's attitude towards fossil fuel consumption. these things take time and cultural adjustment.

You have to keep in mind that Iran is a very science oriented society; and it just doesn't take "you can't do this but that" attitude from others!

Larry said...

Naj,

I gave your link to Jim at An Average American Patriot.

Jim writes alot about Bush wanting a war with Iran and he is writing an article for Daily Kos ( they are the big time blogs, thousands of hourly visitors) on your information.

His blog is :

Monica Thatcher said...

I think you are all missing the bigger picture. This world cannot progress until nationalism, religion and capitalism come to an end. What the great World desperately needs is one Government united in its philosophy for the betterment of the people on the Earth.

Naj said...

Monica,

I think if there was no government at all, it would have been better :)

The manifesto of a "Unified government" for betterment of humanity sounds like another totalitarian "religion" to me!

an average patriot said...

naj
The IAEA report is being purposely diminished here not just by the NYT but it is being done so Bush can go ahead with his attack. It is noww imminent. Despite what the experts have said I always expected it sometime this fall. Both sidees are now prepared and it will happen.
You and one other I have not responded to yet honor me with your opinions on my story. It will tak a bit of time to address the other comment but it will be an interesting dialogue as Bush is not concerned about a Shiite Sunni war beyond a means of achieving his end game which is good for no one in the world even us.
Here is my reply to you. an average patriot said...
naj
I am honored and I am the one that owes Larry thanks. I do know about the IRG commander change. The choice and at this time is no coincidence. His picture and that statement is at the head of this story.
I have been trying to wake up Americans for years now as to what Bush is doing and how this is going to turn out to no avail.
I don't know if it is Bush trolls on kos where I first tried to reach people but many get upset and toss names at me when I tell them what is happening and the way thngs are going to turn out. This is not going to be good!
I stated that I have written 50 stories on this but I bet it's closer to 150. We can not stop trying to wake people up but I am afraid that neither side will be swayed and their minds were made up years ago as to war.
If you can let go your anger long enough to read this especially the part from, The necessary Embrace of Conspiracy By Robert Shatterly: you will understand why Americans are "snowed" by what Bush and his handlers are feeding them. I could go on forever but I am filled with anger too and I better shut up. Please stay in touch!

an average patriot said...

I just wrote a nice comment and blew it away somehow. Many Americans will not wake up to the fact that what is about to happen is a foregone conclusion and has been for years. I have put 4 or 5 sources together to try to illustrate that. Because of purposeful confusuion interjected in America many wouldn't know the truth until it kils them and it will.
I can see you have your own problems after seein the coment from Amre el Abyad and I will educate him next that Bush does not care about hyim either as he follows his own agenda. Amy way you look at it we are all in trouble.

Yes the people are scared. A lot of them look at this as it don't affect me so why should I care.

Many German people did the same and yes we may not be run over by tanks, however they have their own private military now.

They are called mercenary's such as Blackwater who they used after Katrina destroyed NOLA two years ago, and yes they will fire on American Citizens and kill them

They also have built what they call work camps, but I believe they are concentration camps just like Hitler had.

Our country is not what it appears too be anymore. It is not what it was anymore. This is not the free country the MSM portrays it to be.

This is not the United States of America any longer.

This is America The Fourth Reich.

So in answer to your question. Yes the people are scared of its Government.

God Bless and stay safe my friend.

Naj,

Your beautiful words about your breaking heart really have affected me. I wrote a paragraph about you in my new book, which has to get to the publisher in a few days.

I will also spread the word about your blog as much as possible.

I am with you on this, this is beyond reprehensible. We have to make sure Bush doesn't get away with anything!

We also have to really pray and trust Love, the God of Love that really does heal.

I just found this and sent it to your friend Amre. I thoguht you would find it of interest too.
an average patriot said...
Here you go Amre I hope naj sees this too. No one including us is safe from Bush. I wrote this a year ago.
Bush's Terrible plan for new middle east order from the get go! now I have the proof! This is not good!
I was looking at the notes I took down last night from the various articles I had from Bush's most recent Rant on Iraq. Like you, I find his senseless babble very disturbing. Especially knowing that he is going to say or do anything to follow his plan for new world order.
Many of you know I have been saying for quite a while that Bush will do or say anything in order to follow his Russian Doctrine of Destruction for new societal, middle east, and world order. His plan at the link!
http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/...

I knew Bush purposely upset the middle east, Iraq would be lost, Iran attacked, and the entire middle east embroiled. Thanks to Shergald, a diarist on kos, I now have the proof.
In this short policy memo, which Netanyahu, and his successor-Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, totally adopted as the core strategy of their administrations, spelled out a four-pronged attack on the peace process and the entire Arab world.
It has become a self-evident truth that, since the Bush "43" and Sharon governments came into power simultaneously in early 2001, "A Clean Break" has been the guiding strategic doctrine of both--particularly following the irregular warfare attacks on New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001.
*** The Perle-Wurmser policy document demanded: 1) Destroy Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Authority, blaming them for every act of Palestinian terrorism, including the attacks from Hamas, an organization which Sharon had helped launch during his early 1980's tenure as Minister of Defense. 2) Induce the United States to overthrow the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq. 3) Launch war against Syria after Saddam's regime is disposed of, including striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon, and targets in Syria proper. 4) Parlay the overthrow of the Ba'athist regimes in Baghdad and Damascus into the "democratization" of the entire Arab world, including through further military actions against Iran, Saudi Arabia, and "the ultimate prize," Egypt http://www.larouchepub.com/...

The timeline for this is a little different than what we now know. As for the reality of what the real reasons and goals for all this, we will never know. I will again guarantee you that there will be a new middle east order.
It will be total disorder and no one will like it. With Bush and Israel wanting their idea of a new middle east order and the so called Islamist's wanting their conflicting version, they have guaranteed a disastrous result for the entire middle east and Bush promises to keep our troops in the middle of it regardless!
