Understood, as my final closing I will offer a few rebuttal quotes both from the source offered in the last post as well as the headline concerning the initial samples being gathered today.

He did not name the place, but did say that he and Tero Varjoranta, the IAEA's chief inspector, visited a building previously only monitored by satellite technology, and indicated it had been altered.http://news.yahoo.com/iran-hands-iae...005156026.html
"Inside the building, we saw indications of recent renovation work. There was no equipment in the building," he said before appearing to criticise past construction work at Parchin.
"As I have stated in my reports.. the extensive work that has been conducted at the location since early 2012 undermines the agency's ability to conduct effective verification there.
"Our experts will now analyse this information and we will have discussions with Iran in the coming weeks."
Iran had previously refused permission to enter Parchin, highlighting its military function and stressing the IAEA had already conducted inspections in 2005 that yielded nothing.
None of the proposed controls by the IAEA are really that reassuring. Iran has had months to not only cover up the areas where samples could be taken, but evidence that they have sterilized the area in the last few months is plainly apparent.
That they also have months to rehearse the exact route and view cameras would take as they moved through the building and, apparently, picked the sample themselves, sounds a lot more like Kabuki theater than an impartial inspection.
