Chalk this up as another U.N. success story. Dan from New York explains:

Apparently, when the findings of the latest IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear weapons program are compared to earlier reports crafted by “moderate” Egyptian Mohamed ElBaradei, the obvious conclusion is that ElBaradei was working for the Mullahs. ElBaradei has since moved on. He’s now one of the leading candidates vying to be Egypt’s president.

Israeli officials: ElBaradei an Iranian agent

Senior state officials accuse former IAEA chairman of covering up for Islamic Republic during his term, allowing Iranians to move ahead with nuclear program while playing for time. ‘He is a despicable person,’ one of them says.

Senior Israeli officials said Tuesday night that the International Atomic Energy Agency report stating that Iran has been working on developing a nuclear weapon design proves that the former UN nuclear watchdog chairman “was an Iranian agent”.

The former IAEA chairman, Mohamed ElBaradei, is an Egyptian diplomat who even won the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.

For years he defended the Iranian nuclear program, claiming that it was peaceful, thus allowing the Iranians to continue their activity with the nuclear watchdog’s seal of approval.

According to one of the state officials, the new report published Tuesday proves “just how much he was working for the Iranians.

“He simply rescued Iran and was constantly busy covering up for them, causing serious damage by allowing the Iranians to fool the entire world and play for time. History may judge him as the person who helped Iran obtain a nuclear weapon.

“The things exposed now are not new. These are old things which were hidden and not published,” the official added. “Now it turns out that ElBaradei led an active policy of concealment and disregard. This is very serious. He is a despicable person.”

“ElBaradei didn’t just mess us up, he messed up the entire sane world,” added Uzi Eilam, former head of Israel’s Atomic Energy Agency. “He was dishonest his entire term. He is the one who stopped the Security Council from imposing serious sanctions, providing the Iranians with precious time.”

Gee, after the multi-billion dollar Oil-for-Food scandal; the IPCC Global Warming Bunko Scam; mass-murder in Darfur; the Rwandan genocide; accusations of rape and child pornography in the Congo, Haiti, Liberia, and Sudan; and ties to a North Korean counterfeiting operation, who could have suspected a corrupt U.N. was helping the Iranians acquire nukes?

This is dumb on a number of levels:

1. ElBaradei did not need to be “an Iranian agent”. He is a Muslim. If Iran was paying him, they overpaid. He would have done it for free.

2. ElBaradei did not “move on”. “He’s now one of the leading candidates vying to be Egypt’s president” is not proof that he’s changed careers from genocidal fraud to “democratic reform”. Egypt is not undergoing an Enlightenment. ElBaradei is still working on genocidal fraud.

3. ElBaradei is not responsible for stopping the UN from taking serious action. They never wanted to, they never would have, the fraud was intentional on the UN’s part, and if ElBaradei didn’t step up they would have picked some other crook to perpetrate it.

This is a pathetic smear and not worthy of having a place here.

If not for the “ham” in your screen name I’d say it’s hitting a little close to home for you. This sure answers a bunch of open questions.

There is no evidence at all that El Baradei is an agent for Iran. None… not even a logic or motive for such a serious accusation. Your insinuations about me are no better.

At the risk of being accused of profiling, I already assumed this just based on his name being El Anything. I know that is easy to attack but the outcome of the events make it pretty obvious that he was either evil or totally inept.
