    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/26/world/middleeast/26nuke.html?_r=1&ref=global-home "The facility is not complete, though American officials said late on Thursday night that they believe it was designed to hold about 3,000 centrifuges, the machines that enrich uranium for nuclear power plants." - NYT It would appear that Iran has remained - barely - within the NPT by revealing this site before it processed any Uranium. This is an example of WHY the goal must be to have the IAEA be empowered by Iran rejoining the Additional Protocols and also why the LAST thing the world needs is Iran dropping out of the NPT. The world does not need any more nations with nuclear weapons. Despite Ahmadinijad's notorious big mouth, Iran has continued to increase compliance, most notably supplying plans and access for the Arak Heavy Water Moderated Reactor, and now this incomplete 'pilot plant.' So long as there is no production of Highly Enriched Uranium or Plutonium Separation, no bomb is possible.
