National Security Adviser John Bolton retweeted, with apparent approving comment, a report that accused Iran of fudging its reports to nuclear-disarmament watchdogs.

Specifically, the report published by the Institute for Science and International Security accused Iran, based on satellite imagery and documents seized last year by Israeli intelligence, of not-identifying a former nuclear weapons site under Project 110 of the Amad Plan.

That project “was charged with the development and production of nuclear warheads,” most specifically uranium metallurgy and weapons components, the report said

“Report: Iran’s secret nuclear archive ‘provides substantial evidence that Iran’s declarations to IAEA are incomplete & deliberately false,’” Mr. Bolton tweeted, in part quoting the report by David Albright, Olli Heinonen, Frank Pabian, and Andrea Stricker

“The President was right to end horrible Iran deal. Pressure on Iran to abandon nuclear ambitions will increase,” Mr. Bolton concluded.

The Institute writers advised that “the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors should urge the IAEA to verify sites, locations, facilities, and materials involved in these activities, and urge Iran to cooperate fully in these investigations.”
