    The IAEA is right on top of the Iranian Safeguards and Inspection program, which covers all of the Iranian nuclear facilities. ElBaredi reminds us that there is no need to rush to take any action that can escalate the tensions, AT LEAST UNTIL we find out if there is anything to be worried about in Iran's program. So far, so good. There is no evidence of any diversion of nuclear materials, and what Dr. elBaredi is asking for is the time to be able to complete his work. For some reason, both the article and Dr. elBaredi left out the most significant factor of the entire affair. Iran, as all other nations under the NPT, has the right to operate facilities for enriching uranium, and has never agreed to give up that right. The whole purpose of suspension was as a confidence-building measure provided by Iran while the IAEA carried out its investigations. Which it is still carrying out. Or, Iraq all over again.
