What Americans should know about Iran and its nuclear program

October 23, 2009

The recent release of military intelligence that claims Iran is in the process of building a second uranium enrichment facility sent shock waves throughout the international community. A University of Minnesota foreign relations expert who can explain all the facts of the tense situation is:

William Beeman, University of Minnesota Department of Anthropology Chair
There's still much to be determined before action is taken says Beeman. “No one has presented any concrete evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. This has been asserted in every inspection report of Iran carried out by the International Atomic Energy Agency, and our own American National Intelligence Estimate.” Beeman regularly consults for the State Department, Department of Defense, the United Nations and has testified on Middle Eastern and Islamic Affairs before Congress.
