U.N. confirms Iran has enriched uranium

Sources say report to Security Council criticizes non-compliance

An International Atomic Energy Agency report released today to the Security Council confirms Iran successfully has enriched uranium-235 at Natanz in the four months since the plant was re-opened, according to WND columnist Jerome Corsi, citing sources in New York.

The sources said the report is critical of Iran's continued non-compliance with IAEA inspection demands.

A spokesman at the IAEA in Austria told Corsi today the report is "secret" until the next IAEA meeting but many Security Council members are "leaky" and it probably will be circulated by one of the 28 nations that received a copy this morning.

This morning, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is widely quoted in world media saying Iran "won't give a damn" about any Security Council resolutions concerning its nuclear program.

Meanwhile, in a press conference today, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told reporters the U.S. would move for a Security Council resolution demanding Iran stop its uranium enrichment at Natanz.

The Jerusalem Post reported Monday Israel has made improvements to its Arrow 2 missile system in order to intercept Iranian Shahab-3 missiles armed with multiple warheads and equipped with decoy systems designed to evade anti-missile defenses.

Israel has two operational Arrow 2 batteries � one at Palmahim to protect Tel Aviv, the other at Ein Shemer near Hadera, in northern Israel, near the Mediterranean Sea.
