« Iran Tweets in English: "Israel Must Be Annihilated" | Main | WAYBACK MACHINE report on: Al Gore's inconvenient Noble Prize »


a) Several weeks prior to Netanyahu's congressional speech

b) 2006 Page Nine report on Iran's development of an atomic bomb

The lamestream media told you:

Just three weeks earlier USA Today reported on Feb. 10, 2105: "President Obama said Monday that the time has come for Iran to decide whether to accept a nuclear deal, and he acknowledged 'very real differences' with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the negotiations."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The Uninvited Ombudsman has been pointing out for years* that Iran is laughing at us, openly and to our faces, and simply continuing to pursue nuclear weapons while the person currently in the White House rattles a sabre fecklessly. The "news" media reports the sabre rattling as if it means something. Critics say the reporters don't know better.

In other news, The National Review quotes Mohammed Ali Jafari, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard saying, "The Americans have very clearly surrendered to Iran's might, and this is obvious in their behavior in the region and their negotiations." The quote accurately describes the entire situation. USA Today could not be reached for comment. Other "news" media apparently didn't get the memo.

In still other news, The National Review quoted Iran's President, Hassan Rouhani, saying "Centrifuges have been running and I promise the Iranian nation that centrifuges will never stop." Centrifuges are the devices needed to create fissionable uranium for atom bombs. Other "news" media apparently didn't get that memo either.

Backgrounder: Most naturally occurring uranium metal has an atomic weight of 238, but a tiny percentage of it is an isotope that weighs 235 (it has three less neutrons in its nucleus). The lighter portion is the part that can be made into a bomb, and Iran is separating this based on the extremely small difference in weight, by converting the metal to a gas, uranium tetrafluoride, and running it in high-speed gas centrifuges. High speed means something like 1,500 revolutions per second (90,000 RPM) which is Mach 2, depending on size.

Iran is believed to have as many as 100,000 of these devices spinning 24 hours a day (the numbers and locations are hotly disputed). Mr. Obama actually thinks Iran has to make some sort of decision about that. Everyone else knows they already have. And now back to your previously scheduled advertising.

* "Diplomats told the Associated Press that Iran is ready to consider complying, at least temporarily, with a U.N. Security Council demand that it freeze uranium enrichment, which can be used in developing atomic weapons," says AP reporter George Jahn, on Sep. 11, 2006...

Iran has been telling the Associated Press it may stop bomb production, which the AP dutifully reports, constantly. Meanwhile, inspectors are locked out, promises are made to gullible reporters instead of responsible authorities... Full report here: (Page Nine No. 15, I'm up to No. 144)
