The IAEA Reports on Egypt: Reluctantly?

Pierre Goldschmidt, Proliferation Analysis
ElBaradeiEditor's Note: In an article in the February-March 2009 issue of Survival on "Exposing Nuclear Non-Compliance," Pierre Goldschmidt suggested that the lack of discussion about Egypt in the IAEA Annual Report for 2005 and subsequent Safeguards Implementation Reports gave the false impression that the issue has been resolved.
