R-MEW scoops Reuters

Well, it took a story from the New York Times for Reuters to finally get around to reporting that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has concluded that "Iran has acquired sufficient information to be able to design and produce a workable” atom bomb.

Of course, we reported on this development as an update to our post "The Elephant in the Room" on September 18 following the original disclosure in an article by the Associated Press the same day.

We imagine that Reuters must have been waiting for one of the two Mohamed elBaradeis to get around to endorsing the IAEA conclusion but regrettably, that elBaradei appears to be on holiday in Iran while the other, less confrontational elBaradei apparently "cannot make any judgment at all" on the evidence.

Ah, the dilemmas of a Reuters' managing editor!
