Iran: Will the IEAA be allowed to publish its report this time?

Last time, the International Atomic Energy Agency was kicked out of Iraq by the US before it could provide its definitive report as to whether or not Saddam had or was developing weapons of mass destruction. We know the answer.

This time we seem to have emerging an approximate replay of the folly that will cost the US an estimated $2.4 trillion, not mention the countless dead.

Western powers agreed in September to delay seeking harsher sanctions against Iran after Iran agreed a deal with the watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to answer questions about past secrets of its nuclear work within several months.

The Vienna-based IAEA will issue a report in mid-November.

Yet Nicholas Burns, U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs said a clean bill of health from the IAEA alone would not spare Iran from exposure to stiffer U.N. penalties.

What will?

This has the look of Iraq all over it: (wistful) supposition trumps fact,

The US and Israel keeps insisting Iran (Iraq) is developing nuclear weapons capabilities; Iran (Iraq) keeps insisting it isn’t. Enter a trusted third party to find proof on either side. In Iraq, of course, that wasn’t allowed to happen. WIll it be allowed to happen in Iran?
