WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by Iran Policy Committee:
WHEN: 10:00a, Thursday, 9 September 2010
WHERE: Holeman Lounge, National Press Club, 529 14th St. NW, Washington DC
WHAT: The Iran Policy Committee is hosting a press conference where intelligence about Iran's new major secret nuclear site will be presented. The information will include precise information on the location and details, progress-to-date, as well as experts, military commanders, and companies involved in building this site.
The source of this information also provided the intelligence on Natanz uranium enrichment and Arak heavy water in 2002, Lavizan-Shian in 2003, Qom nuclear site in 2005, as well as command and control center for nuclear weapons known as Mojdeh in 2008.
WHY: The international community's refusal to abandon once and for all the hopes for reaching an accommodation with Tehran, despite its continuing defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions, gives the Iranian regime more time to pursue its drive to acquire the Bomb. Sanctions, while necessary, are insufficient to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. Hence there is a need for a policy shift regarding Iran.
- Ms. Soona Samsami, who revealed the information on the Kala Electric nuclear site in northern Tehran in February 2003.
- Alireza Jafarzadeh, President, Strategic Policy Consulting, author of The Iran Threat: President Ahmadinejad and the Coming Nuclear Crisis, who made initial disclosures of Iran's secret nuclear program in Natanz and Arak in 2002.
- Professor Raymond Tanter, President, Iran Policy Committee, author of President Obama and Iran, which discusses policy options, including regime change in Tehran based on relying on the Iranian opposition.
