Gee, I didn't know that the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) consisted of right wing Israelis.<quoted text>
i don't believe what right wing Israelis say any more than i do what you say. or did Iran just admit to doubling it? or is someone just guessing?
Obama's first sanction July 1, 2010.
In August 2010, the IAEA said Iran has started using a second set of 164 centrifuges linked in a cascade, or string of machines, to enrich uranium to up to 20% at its Natanz pilot fuel enrichment plan.
In February 2012 the IAEA report also described progress in Iran's enrichment and fuel fabrication efforts, including a tripling of the number of cascades enriching uranium.
In August 2012 the IAEA released a report showing a major expansion of Iranian enrichment activities. The report said that Iran has more than doubled the number of centrifuges at the underground facility at Fordow, from 1,064 centrifuges in May to 2,140 centrifuges in August.
In November 2012 the IAEA released a report showing continued expansion in Iranian uranium enrichment capabilities. At Fordow, all 2784 IR-1 centrifuges (16 cascades of 174 each) have been installed, though only 4 cascades are operating and another 4 are fully equipped, vacuum-tested, and ready to begin operating.
In February 2013 the IAEA released a report showing continued expansion in Iranian uranium enrichment capabilities. As of 19 February, 12,699 IR-1 centrifuges have been installed at Natanz. This includes the installation of 2,255 centrifuges since the previous IAEA report in November
In May 2013 the IAEA reported Iran had installed close to 700 high-tech centrifuges used for uranium enrichment, which can produce the core of nuclear weapons. It also said Tehran had added hundreds of older-generation machines at its main enrichment site to bring the total number to more than 13,000.
In August 2013 the IAEA reported Iran had added 300 more of its advanced centrifuges since the last report in May, for a total of 1,008, and had put all of them under vacuum. The report also said Iran had installed more of its older-generation centrifuges to bring up their number to more than 15,000, with most of them running.
Bear in mind these IAEA reports are based on what the Iranians allow the inspectors to see. I'm no expert on enrichment but saying they have doubled their capabilities is really lowballing it!!!
