Iran’s Fordow Nuclear Facility Go BOOM

Sabotage! Key Iranian nuclear facility hit?
Source: Explosion destroys much of underground installation

by Reza Kahlili from WND

An explosion deep within Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility has destroyed much of the installation and trapped about 240 personnel deep underground, according to a former intelligence officer of the Islamic regime.IranEnrichment-340x176

The previously secret nuclear site has become a center for Iran’s nuclear activity because of the 2,700 centrifuges enriching uranium to the 20-percent level. A further enrichment to weapons grade would take only weeks, experts say.

The level of enrichment has been a major concern to Israeli officials, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu repeatedly has warned about the 20-percent enriched stockpile.

The explosion occurred Monday, the day before Israeli elections weakened Netanyahu’s political control.

Iran, to avoid alarm, had converted part of the stockpile to fuel plates for use in the Tehran Research Reactor. However, days after the recent failed talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iranian officials announced the enrichment process will not stop even “for a moment.” [snip]

According to a source in the security forces protecting Fordow, an explosion on Monday at 11:30 a.m. Tehran time rocked the site, which is buried deep under a mountain and immune not only to airstrikes but to most bunker-buster bombs. The report of the blast came via Hamidreza Zakeri, formerly with the Islamic regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and National Security.Fordow

The blast shook facilities within a radius of three miles. Security forces have enforced a no-traffic radius of 15 miles, and the Tehran-Qom highway was shut down for several hours after the blast, the source said. [snip]

The regime believes the blast was sabotage and the explosives could have reached the area disguised as equipment or in the uranium hexafluoride stock transferred to the site, the source said. The explosion occurred at the third centrifuge chambers, with the high-grade enriched uranium reserves below them.

The information was passed on to U.S. officials but has not been verified or denied by the regime or other sources within the regime.

    Obama issued a statement just now! The Corpseman-in Chief said that,”The possibility this was just an accident flies in the face of all reason…and believe me, I know all about flies in the face.”

    Sounds like a successful Op on someone’s part. Given our current “leadership” who are more focused on putting homosexuals and women into “combat” than actually waging meaningful combat on a worthy target, I’d say it is likely that we can thank Israel and the Mossad for another strike against the Persians.

    Someone needs to convince Israel that the Norks are every bit as much of a threat to them, and see if they can do something about those missile launch facilities along with their nuclear weapons testing infrastructure. All the US is doing right now is demonstrating how weak we are and that emboldens all of the members of the (former) Axis of Evil.

    Interesting. Vince Flynn wrote a fictional story about this very thing. In the story, it was sabotage by an israeli agent.

    Either the Mossad was behind this, or it’s the expected consequence of 7th century morons using 20 and 21st century technology.

    Funny, you probably won’t see Americans dancing and carrying on in the streets of DC in response, like arabs did in Riyadh when 9/11 took place.
    I hope whoever set the charges got away in time.

    Really enraged – I thought the same thing. But it makes more sense to make it look like a possible accident (like Historicus says – 7th century morons using 20th and 21st century technology) at one facility so to not blame Israel. As I said, I fully believe Mossad has people in place over there and it’s only a matter of time before the entire program blows up. Now if they could only take out the crazy PM and the mullahs at the same time . . .
