Israel warns US: Iran preparing to enrich weapons-grade uranium
Report: Israel shared intelligence with US and European allies that Iran is taking technical steps to prepare to enrich uranium to 90% purity.
Arutz Sheva Staff , Nov 30 , 2021

Israel has shared intelligence over the past two weeks with the US and several European allies suggesting that Iran is taking technical steps to prepare to enrich uranium to 90% purity — the level needed to produce a nuclear weapon, two US sources told Axios’ Barak Ravid on Monday. Enriching to 90% would bring Iran closer than ever to the nuclear threshold. The Israeli warnings come as nuclear talks resume in Vienna, with Iran returning to the negotiating table on Monday after a five-month hiatus.

Enrichment alone will not produce a bomb. Estimates vary as to how long it would take Iran to master the additional technological requirements, but US and Israeli intelligence sources have put the timeline at one to two years. The intelligence Israel shared with the Biden administration suggests the Iranian preparatory steps would allow Iran to move ahead with 90% enrichment within weeks if it chose to do so, according to one of the US sources cited by Ravid.

What? You mean Iran isn't enriching uranium for "peaceful purposes"? C'mon...

Asked to comment on this story, a senior Biden administration official declined to discuss intelligence matters but said it was “no secret that the former administration's decision to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal led to a dramatic and unprecedented acceleration of Iran's nuclear program," and that the US was focused on diplomacy with Iran but "prepared to pursue other options should diplomacy fail."
Interesting how they always put the blame on the former administration. I'm sure the former, former administration's planes full of billions of $$ slowed the progress down.
