[Ed. – But the regime is being cagey about whodunnit. The interesting thing at this juncture is that they’re making a point of saying it’s sabotage in public. The mullahs’ objective is never to get the truth out, and everyone was pretty much assuming it was sabotage anyway (by someone). But the regime apparently sees something to be gained by making an announcement about it now.]
Iran on Monday confirmed that a mysterious explosion last month at one of its nuclear facilities was an “act of sabotage,” but provided few other details about who was behind the attack.
A July explosion at Iran’s Natanz nuclear enrichment facility sparked allegations that Israel may have struck a site that both it and the United States believe is fueling Iran’s undisclosed work on an atomic weapon. The site is home to equipment that allows Iran to enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, to levels needed to power a bomb.
“Security investigations confirm the sabotage nature of this action and what is certain is that the explosion took place in Natanz, but the security officials will announce the details of the explosion and how it took place in due time,” Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, said in an interview with Iran’s state-controlled media.
