    AP: Iran may have cleaned up nuke work

    (AP) VIENNA - Satellite images of an Iranian military facility appear to show trucks and earth-moving vehicles at the site, indicating an attempted cleanup of radioactive traces possibly left by tests of a nuclear-weapon trigger, diplomats told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

    The assertions from the diplomats, all nuclear experts accredited to the International Atomic Energy Agency, could add to the growing international pressure on Iran over its nuclear program, which Tehran insists is for peaceful purposes.

    While the U.S. and the EU are backing a sanctions-heavy approach, Israel has warned that it may resort to a pre-emptive strike against Iran's nuclear facilities to prevent it from obtaining atomic weapons.

    Two of the diplomats said the crews at the Parchin military site may be trying to erase evidence of tests of a small experimental neutron device used to set off a nuclear explosion. A third diplomat could not confirm that but said any attempt to trigger a so-called neutron initiator could only be in the context of trying to develop nuclear arms.

    ...Tehran insists is for peaceful purposes.

    Because when I say "peaceful country" the first nation to pop into your head is Iran, right?

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    Interesting perspective from Meir Dagan on 60 Minutes last night. CBS doesn't allow their YouTube clips to embed, so links - including the few extra minutes not aired. I'd like to see the unedited interview.
