ASSociated Press: Diplomats: IAEA Get Iran Nuclear Documents
Iran has given the International Atomic Energy Agency sensitive documents on nuclear warheads, diplomats said Tuesday.
The diplomats told The Associated Press that 1 1/2 pages describing how to cast fissile uranium into the spherical shape of warheads were given to IAEA inspectors last week.
At the same time, the U.N. agency passed to Iran intelligence provided by the United States that suggests Iran has been working on nuclear weapons and asked for a response, said the diplomats, who demanded anonymity in exchange for revealing the confidential information.

This is NO surprise. Of course, Iran is developing nuclear weapon capability.
However, does this mean Western intelligence has underestimated Iranian nuclear weapon progress?
