Retired U.S. Atomic Energy Commission's nuclear weapons expert, Clinton Bastin exposes US-EU-UN-IAEA's lies about Iran. QUESTION: What is your assessment of Iran’s nuclear program? CLINTON BASTIN: It's a nuclear power program. Iran made a commitment to full use of nuclear power in 1970, ordered five nuclear plants from the United States, which promised, but later denied, reprocessing technology. Because of the denial of reprocessing, Iran is reluctant to rely on others, so they wanted to enrich their own uranium, which is essential for nuclear power. That’s what they’re doing. Their reactor is a U.S.-type light water reactor. The Russians started building them successfully, and I think it's fine. 20% enriched uranium is not weapons material. Weapons material is about 90%.
