I read the latest IAEA report to the Board of Governors on Iran, GOV/2010/62, yesterday. Before this report, a few weeks before the report was released the Israeli press was full of ominous and threatening assertions as to it's contents. GOV/2010/62 reveals that the Iranian enrichment program blunders on, with poor results and little progress. An inventory of all Uranium in the Fuel Enrichment Plant at Natanz was conducted. This included all feed, enriched product, and tails. The average product has been 3.37% enriched, too low to use for fuel at Bushehr. This probably explains why six of the plants cascades have been extended from 164 to 174 cascades. Nothing has changed at the Pilot Plant since Cascade 6 was coupled to Cascade 1 to recover Uranium from the tails of Cascade 1. Strong evidence of how inefficient the IR-1 centrifuges are. Production of 20% enriched Uranium remains low. At the much hyped Fordow *Qom) plant the plans have been revised and nothing much else is happening with construction ongoing but NO centrifuges yet installed. Iran has yet to start on the plant that would be necessary to manufacture fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor. The report GOV/2010/62, as with it's predecessors, stands as testimony of just how poorly the Israeli intel services have done in recent years, and the lack of the usual barrage of hype suggests that the intel services have decided to stop drawing attention to that fact.
