Have you noticed all the mysterious explosions that happen with increasing frequency to the Iranian nuclear program? There’s also the oh-so-mysterious deaths of various scientists and military figures who are vital to the Iranian push towards a nuclear red line.
Just bad luck, I guess.
Or: Maybe the Iranians are a bunch of incompetents.
Or: Maybe somebody is sabotaging the program, knocking off Iranian assets, one at a time.
I dunno. It’s baffling.
Now, another big bang, that the mullahs are, of course, denying ever took place.
On Jan 21, 14 members of the North Korean team and two military officers now stationed at Fordow along with Iranian scientists started the process of feeding uranium gas into the newly set-up cascades at 9:15 a.m. Tehran time.
At 10:43 a.m., due to a drop in power pressure, system warning signs went off, but everything went back to normal after two minutes.
At 11:36 a.m., five explosions occurred concurrently in the centrifuge chambers, two explosions in the uranium reserve enclosures and a subsequent explosion in the main hallway close to the exit.
At the time of the explosions, a very bright red and purple light distorted the image and an extremely loud noise could be heard. Before the explosions knocked out the cameras, interior walls could be seen coming down within the centrifuge chambers. All the explosions seemed to have been initiated from the ceilings.
All cameras on the lowest floor (about 300 feet deep under a mountain) and the floor above it (about 250 feet deep) were knocked out, and only two cameras above the installation where security personnel are stationed were working.
Security forces immediately informed their superiors, who ordered them to remain in the monitoring room and avoid further communication with the outside world until counterintelligence forces arrived. Twenty-one personnel were gathered in a conference room to await further instruction.
Security forces were then told to close down all surrounding roads.
Approximately two hours after the explosions, counterintelligence agents arrived and, after interviewing personnel and reviewing tapes, initially concluded that explosives may have been placed in ceiling lamps with some kind of trigger mechanism controlled by a power voltage frequency.
The last images show eight personnel in anti-radiation clothing trying desperately to secure one of the rooms.
