Through its sources within the Iranian regime, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has obtained highly critical and reliable intelligence on the existence of an active and secret parallel nuclear program in Iran.
Revealed at a Washington, D.C., press conference on Tuesday Morning the NCRI revealed that Iran is continuing to work on uranium enrichment in an underground complex hidden for years from the U.N. nuclear inspectors. The group says the facility is right outside Tehran in a heavily protected 62-acre facility. As evidence of the plant’s existence, the group presented a picture of one of its doors, which is more than one foot thick and-lead lined to shield the center from radiation. NCRI also reports that the huge, secret rooms are insulated against sound so as to undetectable by the West.
According to NCRI, the Iranian regime has been continuing to lie for more than a decade and has deceived the world community. And if the United States is serious about preventing the regime from developing nuclear weapons it must insist on inspecting the site as a priority.
The NCRI has been invaluable in exposing some of the most significant parts of the Iranian regime’s nuclear weapons program, including Natanz uranium enrichment and Arak heavy water sites (August 2002), Kalay-e Electric centrifuge assembly and testing facility (February 2003), Lashkar-abad Laser enrichment and Lavizan-Shian site (May 2003), Fordo underground enrichment site (December 2005), and Defensive Innovation and Research Organization, SPND (July 2011).
