Amusing editorial comment of the day

We like Reuters correspondent Fredrik Dahl.  Despite a couple of journalistic missteps in the past where he has offered Syria and Iran passes on their nuclear weapons programs while drawing attention to Israel's "undeclared nuclear arsenal", Dahl now appears to be genuinely trying to inform readers on Iran's stonewalling of the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency.

Of course, the Iranian regime doesn't always cooperate on this front:
Iran media reports this week suggested a visit to Parchin might still be granted but the IAEA said on Thursday Tehran had not contacted it formally about any trip.
Iran's IAEA ambassador, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, told reporters outside the board meeting that the suspicions aired about Parchin were "childish" and "ridiculous".  He did not elaborate.
Actually, we understand Dahl missed Soltanieh's follow-up where the ambassador stated:
"I'm rubber; you're glue. Everything you say bounces off me and sticks to you".
