Unconfirmed Blog Scoop: El-Baradei Takes Expensive Gifts From Iran

This is just from a Jawa emailer who insists on remaining anonymous. Jawa describes him as "a research analyst whose work crosses the path with the IAEA."

Usual caveats apply, but this would seem to require some investigation:

In my line of work I have come into contact with people in the IAEA who naturally are afraid to express their views in public. In conversations with them a short while ago, there was cautious optimism after the German newspaper 'Die Welt' published details about the dismissal of Chris Charlier, one of the senior IAEA inspectors in charge of the Iranian nuclear issue, simply because his conclusions were unsympathetic towards Iran. These people hoped that the details revealed in the media would force the IAEA to set its house in order, despite the person at its head, and thereby expose the relationship between Iran and El-Baradei, who has on too many occasions been Iran's savior. But nothing has come of this affair. On the contrary, El-Baradei did his utmost to prevent sullying Iran's name and to conceal the affair as quickly as possible. The resentment of my colleges in the IAEA and their astonishment only grew when it came out that in recognition of El-Baradei's conduct Iran sent him 'gifts' - including extremely expensive traditional carpets of the highest quality (one Persian carpet could be valued as high as 50,000 euros.)

The UN may be incompetent and feckless, but, on the other hand, it's also corrupt.


Not Sure... if the IAEA is actually under the UN. Probably not, now that I think about it.

Eh. You know what I mean.
