IAEA’s ‘Soviet Nuclear Scientist’ Never Worked on Weapons

There are 4 comments on the original.antiwar.com story from Nov 10, 2011, titled IAEA’s ‘Soviet Nuclear Scientist’ Never Worked on Weapons. In it, original.antiwar.com reports that:

The report of the International Atomic Energy Agency published by a Washington think tank Tuesday repeated the sensational claim previously reported by news media all over the world that a former Soviet nuclear weapons scientist had helped Iran construct a detonation system that could be used for a nuclear weapon.

But it turns out that the foreign expert, who is not named in the IAEA report but was identified in news reports as Vyacheslav Danilenko, is not a nuclear weapons scientist but one of the top specialists in the world in the production of nanodiamonds by explosives.

Probably the U.S. officials ordered IAEA to falsify the data, but this work was done very bungle.

Somehow, I too am having a hard time to believe it.
Most likely, someone has doctored those documents.

To validate these original claims, we have consulted with out top DOE specialist, Rick Perry.

Q. Mr. Perry, being intimately familiar with the DOE's work throughout your career in public service, would you say that Mr. Danilenko's work in explosives qualifies him as a nuclear expert?

A. Thank you for having me. Well, I have butt heads with that agency, the department of whatsis, more than once in my career and I can tell you, they can make anything up and you have to be a nuclear engineer just to figure out what the hell they're saying, sort'a like listening to that Greenspan guy in conference.

But anyway, yeah...he's an explosives expert and they're messin' with explosives in Iran and yeah, that makes him a nuclear expert I guess, yep.

Q. Can you elaborate on that? Might the fact that nanodiamonds can be formed by focused hi-pressure blasts and its possible carryover to other applications have some bearing on the issue?

A. Nope, the guy knew explosives, that's about it. Hey, you think he might have been hooked up with that McVeigh and his bunch? I could get some traction out of that one. Keep me posted.

Q. OK, thank you for your time Mr. Bush, oops, I mean Mr. Perry.

A. OK, thank you and never mind that slip. I hear it all the time. Do it myself sometimes, yeehah!
