Shocker! Obama Says Iran Trying To Build Nuclear Weapons!

Just listened to President Sparky speak regarding the new information on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, so, while waiting for a transcript (some was good, some was rather weak), MSNBC provides some context

President Barack Obama on Friday will urge Iran to come clean about its nuclear activities amid reports that Tehran is building a secret underground plant to manufacture nuclear fuel, officials told NBC News.

Senior administration officials noted that the nuclear non-proliferation treaty requires countries to disclose such facilities at the beginning of construction. This facility, known as the “Qum facility,” would also be in violation of U.N. resolutions requiring Iran to halt enrichment activities.

Iran revealed the existence of the plant earlier this week in a letter sent to Mohamed ElBaradei, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, officials told The Associated Press.

The New York Times reported Friday that Tehran disclosed the existence of the facility after learning that its secrecy had been breached by Western intelligence agencies.

Gee, who coulda thunk it that Iran was NOT trying to build nuclear weapons and were tricky and underhanded? I wonder if the Left will will all of a sudden start going all stud muffin on this issue, now that Obama is President?: 

But, hey, this is the perfect time for conditionless talks with Iran, right?

A little taste of his short speech

“The size and configuration of this facility is inconsistent with a peaceful (nuclear) program,” Obama said, and further raises concerns that Iran is seeking a nuclear weapon.


“Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow, endangering the global nonproliferation regime,” Obama said. “denying its own people access to the opportunity they deserve, and threatening the stability and security of the region and the world.”

Nothing new about Iran breaking the rules.

Watched the video of the briefing at MSNBC, and, (this is what I was waiting for) Obama spends quite a bit of time saying Iran must do this and must do that and must be good boys, but, he leaves out all mentions that if they aren’t good boys and girls, they get no biscuits. Of course, on the flip side, Iran has refused to bow down to any sanctions, threats, and spankings so far.
