WASHINGTON, DC — Does Bob Gates know about more secret Iranian nuclear sites? It certainly sounds like it.

Speaking alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last night at a CNN/George Washington University forum, Gates addressed a wide variety of topics, the Secretary of Defense dropped what seemed to be a big hint that the United States knows much more about the Iranian nuclear program than the Iranians might think.

Asked about his faith in potential verification protocols for Iran’s nuclear program, Gates commented that the administration’s attitudes towards Iran in the negotiations process would hinge on “what nuclear sites might they be prepared to be transparent about that have not been declared at this point.”

Sure sounds like he’s talking about more secret nuclear sites in Iran. It certainly goes beyond the more guarded comments Gates gave on the subject to ABC ten days back.
