    "Ben, the IAEA is not a detective agency nor a police force. They monitor to assure compliance." - Tosefta Actually, the IAEA can function as a detective agency. It is doing so today in Iran and North Korea. It is, within it's area of competence a very good detective agency. It takes inventories, determines capabilities and determines if they are compatible, or if deficiencies exist which require further examination. To those who have taken the time to acquaint themselves with the actual outstanding issues between the IAEA and Iran, it is hard to question the efficacy of the IAEA. The remaining issues are slight, but the fact that the IAEA will not affirm that there is no Iranian bomb program shows that they are most thorough. It is not that it has never been fooled, but it has become exceptionally good at catching anyone trying to fool it. Neither the US or Israel seems confident enough of their information to make a formal complaint.
