Stonewall Rohani laughing all the way to the bank

Now that the international sanctions regime against Iran is essentially gone (thank you President Hussein Obama), the IAEA reports that Iran is refusing to answer questions regarding its nuclear weapons program.
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director Yukiya Amano revealed last Friday that Iran is refusing to answer questions about whether or not its nuclear program has included activities to build a nuclear bomb.
Amano said at the Brookings Institute in Washington DC that his agency is waiting for information on "possible military dimensions," which Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has promised to deliver - and never gotten around to doing.
"What is needed now is action," said Amano, enumerating a list of around a dozen issues that Iran has refused to elaborate on for years, reports the New York Times.
"We cannot provide assurance that all material is for peaceful purposes," admitted the IAEA head. "The international community still has its doubts - it still wants clarification. That inquiry process will depend on Iran's level of cooperation."

Amano continued, saying "Iran has a case to answer. I talked to President Rouhani, Iran is willing to accelerate the process of the clarification of the...issue. For now the progress is limited." 
He added that limited funds and increased demand for their service has the IAEA stretched thin, monitoring via satellite imagery from Vienna. The organization considers "state capabilities as a whole rather than focusing on individual facilities," Amano said.
An expert on the issue who asked for anonymity told International Business Times that the problem is with IAEA's resources, as only three people from the agency are investigating the military aspects of Iran's nuclear program.
 The 'deadline' for reaching a deal with Iran is November 24. What could go wrong?

Just keep those submarine missiles trained on Tehran and make sure the mullahs know it. MAD worked once, it will again.
