NATANZ, Iran – Iran’s President Mohammad Khatami took a group of journalists deep underground on Wednesday into the heart of a key nuclear plant which Washington wants dismantled and whose existence was kept secret until 2002.
About 30 local and foreign journalists visited Natanz uranium enrichment facility, 250 km (150 miles) south of Tehran, the centerpiece of a disputed atomic fuel drive which Tehran suspended under international pressure in late 2003.
The unprecedented visit was an unusual gesture of openness by the Islamic state. Reporters, allowed to photograph and film the unimposing complex, were later shown parts of another atomic facility in the central city of Isfahan.
See? Nothing to worry about. It was “unimposing.”
Iran says its nuclear program is nothing for the world to fear and will only be used to generate much-needed electricity….
Reporters left the premises with promissory notes handing over them control of the Brooklyn Bridge in exchange for an undisclosed sum which informed sources described as “princely.”
