Documents acquired by Israeli intelligence in 2018 and recently shown to The Wall Street Journal show that Iranian military and nuclear officials obtained confidential International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports between 2004 and 2006. The Iranian officials annotated the IAEA reports and discussed how to respond to Agency investigations, including by falsifying corporate records and sanitizing sites before inspectors arrived. In the documents, Iranian officials credited “intelligence methods” for procuring the confidential reports.
