Iranian Official Admits Nuclear Program Is Not Peaceful

Remember when the Iranians left blueprints for a nuclear warhead lying around, and then told the IAEA inspectors that the regime "received them inadvertently while purchasing its nuclear equipment on the black market decades ago"? Well, accidents will happen:
But don't worry, everything you think you know about Iran is wrong according to Fareed Zakaria, who assures us the Iranians understand that "following a civilian nuclear strategy has big benefits," and the country's "Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, issued a fatwa in 2004 describing the use of nuclear weapons as immoral," and later said that producing nuclear weapons is "forbidden under Islam." So relax, just because they have highly-enriched uranium, blueprints for a nuclear warhead, and an envoy declaring to international inspectors that the regime has an "inalienable right" to build a nuclear weapon, that doesn't mean anything.
