"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Two Killed in Explosion at Iranian Nuclear Factory

This is an interesting development. We'll have to see what happens in the next few days.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

A large explosion near a suspected nuclear site in Iran has reportedly killed two people and prompted speculation of sabotage at a military site long suspected of housing Tehran’s clandestine nuclear activities, according Iran’s Defense Industries Organization (DIO), which operates under the country’s Ministry of Defense. 
One explosion rocked a production plant late Sunday night in east Tehran, near the Parchin nuclear site, according to Farsi language reports in Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency. 
The explosion at a facility referred to as a “production plant” caused a fire that killed two workers, according to Fars, which cited information provided by Iran’s DIO. 
Fars first reported news of the explosion, claiming that it took place at an “explosive material factory” near Parchin. 
Iranian opposition groups claimed a higher death toll than reported, with some claiming that “at least four military personnel were wounded” in the blast.

This is probably just a standard accident. Yet, whenever I read about some accident in regard to the Iranian attempt to develop a nuclear weapon, I can never completely disregard the possibility of sabotage. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part. Still, I'm frankly rather astonished that Iran hasn't developed a nuclear weapon under Obama's watch-- especially since Obama et al have basically resigned themselves to a nuclear Iran. The fact that this basically means that Islamic terrorists would then also have access to nuclear weapons seems somewhat overlooked by the Obama Administration. 

They still have two years, so I guess we'll see.
