Electricity to Iran's underground enrichment site — which turns uranium into fuel to make nuclear energy, or weapons of mass destruction, depending whom you ask — was cut off explosives last month, according to Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani.

The nation's chief of nuke energy spoke today at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Reuters reports.

What measures should be used to combat a nuclear Iran?

This claim comes after recent assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists and escalating rhetoric from Israel this weekend demanding that the U.S. draw a line in the sand to stop a nuclear Iran.

Abbasi-Davani said the bomb that cut off the nuke juice went off on August 17, one day before the IAEA asked to visit the plant. He's suspicious:

"Does this visit have any connection to that detonation? Who other than the IAEA inspectors can have access to the complex in such a short time? ... It should be recalled that power cut-off is one of the ways to break down centrifuge machines."

Really? Hadn't thought of that.
