Meanwhile, Iran keeps working on nuclear technology

Former head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Akbar Etemad said that the agreement between Tehran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) grants Iran the right to accept or refuse the agency's inspectors.

The terms of a contract between Iran and the IAEA stipulate that the Iranian government "has the right to accept or refuse the inspectors introduced by the Agency," Etemad told the Islamic republic news agency on Thursday.

The remarks come days after the UN body noted in its latest report that Tehran's "repeated objections" to the designation of experienced inspectors could hamper the process of monitoring Iran's nuclear facilities.

As our "leaders" focus on the right to build a Ground Zero mosque, and whether you have the right to burn a Koran, Iran's nuclear program keeps chugging along.
