And This Week's Statement of the Obvious Award Goes To ...

Mohamed El Baradei, head of the IAEA, for stating that negotiations with Iran will reach a dead end unless Iran starts to cooperate.

This has been obvious to the rest of us for some time now.

Left unsaid is that Iran is not going to cooperate, and never will, since their goal is to buy time, which they have done.

BBC: Iran warned over nuclear 'dead end' by UN's El Baradei

Investigations into Iran's nuclear programme will reach a "dead end" unless Tehran starts to co-operate, the UN nuclear chief has warned.

Mohamed El Baradei told governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that there had been no movement on issues that needed to be clarified.

Addressing IAEA governors in Vienna, Mr El Baradei said his inspectors had made no progress on areas which needed to be clarified in order to verify the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme.

"It is now well over a year since the agency was last able to engage Iran in discussions about these outstanding issues," he said.

"We have effectively reached a dead end, unless Iran engages fully with us."
