The "Good News"

according to President Ahmadinejad. A former Iranian president is claiming that the country now has enriched uranium:
Former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani said Tuesday that Iran has enriched uranium using 164 centrifuges, a major development in nuclear fuel cycle technology, news agencies reported.

Rafsanjani made the comment to the Kuwait News Agency during an interview in Tehran.

"Iran has put into operation the first unit of 164 centrifuges, has injected (uranium gas) and reached industrial production," the Kuwait News Agency quoted Rafsanjani as saying.

This seems to be just the very progression that Steyn is warning of in his column, mentioned below.
