Iran Nuke Head Admits to Hiding Info from IAEA -- Intel agencies used IAEA reports to sabotage nuke program -- By Abraham Rabinovich, The Washington Free Beacon

Fereydoon Abbasi told the Iranian daily Khorasan that the West obtained its information from reports submitted by Iran to the IAEA as well as from foreign firms providing equipment used in Tehran’s nuclear program. The interview is believed to be the first time that a former senior official in Iran has given details about sabotage and about Iran’s subsequent concealment of information about its nuclear facilities.

Abbasi said that Iran had for at least seven years withheld information about its construction of a heavy water reactor at Arak and the location and activity of the facilities workshops. The Arak facility is expected to be a principal subject in negotiations over Teheran’s nuclear program between Iran and Western nations aimed at curtailing the program, which resume today in Vienna.

The interview with Abbasi was published yesterday by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
