As John Noonan notes below, Iran's favorite nuclear watchdog, IAEA director general and Nobel laureate Mohamed Elbaradei announced yesterday that the greatest threat to the Middle East is Israel. Though he is due-long overdue-to retire from the UN agency in November, the Cairo native told Spiegel Online in May "There can be no question of retirement. The nuclear threat is too great for me to be able to put this issue to rest. I will continue to play an active role." If that's bad news to some of us, it's gotta feel good to his bff Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
