Soviet scientist Vyacheslav Danilenko has denied being the brains behind Iran's nuclear program. This is despite US media reports that he helped put Tehran on the threshold of making an atomic bomb. The United Nations' nuclear watchdog said in a report issued this week that it had strong indications that a foreign expert had helped Iran develop a "high explosives detonation system" but did not identify this person. The denial is one just many tensions brought by this week’s report by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Ivan Eland, a Senior Fellow and Director of the Center on Peace & Liberty at The Independent Institute, Yevgeny Satanovsky, the President of the Institute of the Middle East, Aleksandr Polishchuk, a Senior Fellow at the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Hisham Ahmed, Politics Professor at St. Mary’s College of California,discuss the report and the subsequent fallout from it.
