From that RT blurb… The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned threats by Israel and the US to strike Iran. This comes after Tehran rejected as a ‘political move’ the latest report by the IAEA which claimed the country has doubled its nuclear capacity…
First off, you can take a look at the IAEA report here from the Grey Lady…! Now, let’s take a gander at what the Grey Lady’s in-house AIPAC mouthpieces had to say about it…

After a couple weeks of hope, there troubling signs about the future of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. It appeared the IAEA had struck a deal with Iran for future inspections, but now, IAEA chief Yukiya Amano has announced new talks, as well as a revelation about satellite images showing demolished buildings at Parchin, one of the sought-after sites by UN weapons inspectors.

The UN’s nuclear watchdog announced a deal with Iran to inspect their nuclear facilities, a day before a second round of talks between Iran and Western powers. Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency said the deal would be signed soon, after a two-day trip to Tehran to work out the details. That didn’t stop the US Senate, which passed a new round of sanctions on Iran, despite the reported progress being made on the negotiation front.

Yesterday, Senate Republicans blocked yet another Iran sanctions bill on the grounds that they needed more time to study it and make sure it was sufficiently punitive. In fact, Republicans want the next sanctions bill to include an “explicit threat of a U.S. military strike if Iran refuses to curb its nuclear ambitions.”
But while Republicans – and sadly, most Democrats – continue to ramp up the frenzy toward war, negotiation has broken out among Iran and its adversaries. Follow-on talks between Iran and Western powers will begin this coming week in Baghdad.

I’m sure this will be given as evidence that Obama “lost” Iran: “International nuclear inspectors reported on Friday that Iran is moving rapidly to produce nuclear fuel at a deep underground site that Israel and the United States have said is virtually invulnerable to attack…”

There is much to say about this week’s Frontline documentary, “Nuclear Aftershocks,” and some of it would even be good. For the casual follower of nuclear news in the ten months since an earthquake and tsunami triggered the massive and ongoing disaster at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, it is illuminating to see the wreckage that once was a trio of active nuclear reactors, and the devastation and desolation that has replaced town after town inside the 20-kilometer evacuation zone. And it is eye-opening to experience at ground level the inadequacy of the Indian Point nuclear plant evacuation plan. It is also helpful to learn that citizens in Japan and Germany have seen enough and are demanding their countries phase out nuclear energy.
But if you are only a casual observer of this particular segment of the news, then the Frontline broadcast also left you with a mountain of misinformation and big bowl-full of unquestioned bias.
