But We Can Trust Them Now

Shocking, in a satirical not really shocking way:

United Nations nuclear monitors say Iran has admitted to misleading them over its experiments with plutonium. The UN's nuclear watchdog is expected to confirm later that Iran continued experimenting with plutonium - a key component of atomic bombs - until 1998.

Iran had previously told the body it had ended its experiments in 1993.

Not to worry, suspicions have been raised. No doubt the the ghost of Hans Brix will be issuing more stern warnings of disappointment soon:

Correspondents say these latest inconsistencies in Iran's account will fuel suspicions about the real aims of its nuclear programme.

To paraphrase a Turtle Bay version of Bugs Bunny, "Of course, this means memos..."
