#1 Iranian authorities have not yet made any progress in their attempt to enter Fordow, Kahlili asserted, adding, "I fear there is radiation involved."

If any of the trapped people get out alive, I expect they will have second thoughts about continuing to work there.

Among those stuck in the facility are dozens of foreign nationals. These are contracted scientists," he said.

Just one of the reasons you should think twice before working for nasty 3rd world dictatorships.

#2 Very confusing story - not just this particular report. But the whole sequence of news about this event over the past week.

This reminds me a lot of the confusion surrounding the bombing of the reactor in Syria a few years back. In that case - at first the news reported an accident. Only later did they confirm the destruction was actually caused by a secret air mission.

Given the degree of silence by Israel on this latest story about Fordow - you have to wonder if Fordow was really hit by a stealth missile or a secret bombing raid. It doesn't require a lot of missiles or airplanes to do the job. It would be nice if someone posted an updated satellite image of the place.

#6 Probably not, at a guess Raider. The site is near Qom and Iran's tunnels allegedly burrow downwards rapidly. Surface bombing would cause major damage to civilians. An attempt to insert a missile through the entrance would meet blast doors and, more seriously, turns in the tunnel direction designed to prevent just this.

Those mechanical squirrels might have been chewing on wires, though. Or telling tales to brave men. If in fact anything did really happen there.

Maybe why the UnKimmie vowed revenge?

#9 We won't know the full story for months I'm sure. I don't really see any way in to cause that much damage unless someone took a "One-way trip". And that's entirely possible as well. Isreal has some brave soldiers and spies. Munich and the bombing of Iraq's Reactor comes to mind.

#10 UN is repor now also dismissing the claim of a boom at Fordow/Fordo.
