One would think that a "fact check" would mean busting Israeli claims about the Iranian nuclear issue, but the article doesn't actually do that at all. At the very best it says that some of Israel's claims are kind of misleading even if they are ultimately correct, and sometimes they just rephrase it:
"CLAIM: The Israeli Security Cabinet statement said Iran has increased the number of centrifuges used in enrichment from 164 in 2006 to more than 18,000.That's not a fact check, which might explain why the AP wrote "details" instead of "facts." Here's another example:
DETAILS: This is correct but not all are active. Of those 18,000 installed, Iran currently runs more than 10,000 centrifuges, which convert uranium feed stock into nuclear fuel."
"CLAIM: The Israeli statement notes that Iran's advances in the technology needed to create nuclear fuel mean that Tehran is also "able to produce nuclear weapons."Again, not a fact check. And it's not "technically true," it is true. I'm sorry if that doesn't fit the Huffington Post's agenda but that's how it is. Not that the actual facts of the article matters anyway, it's not like any of the Huffington Post readership actually bothered to read it before launching into the usual parade of how evil Israel is:
DETAILS: While technically true, this would apply to at least five countries that enrich uranium but do not have their own nuclear arsenal. The list includes Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Japan and the Netherlands."
All as always Huffington Post approved.
