AP Admits Its Iran Nuke Story Flawed

Under withering criticism from respected sources (and even yours truly), the Associated Press has finally admitted that the "graph" it used as basis for "bombshell" story on Iran trying to build nuclear weapon was basically "inaccurate."
The diagram showed a yield of 50 kilotons. But subsequent criticism of the AP's report showed that result was widely inaccurate. Instead, the yield of the hypothetical weapon was much higher and hugely greater than any bomb ever produced — meaning it was next to impossible that Iran was contemplating such a weapon.
But then watch as the AP as it tries to defend its original story.
