Los Angeles Times coverage of this week's revelations regarding a previously secret nuclear facility in Iran included expert commentary from a member of the Monterey Institute community.  Deputy Director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies Leonard S. Spector served as an expert source for the Times' Saturday morning story about the facility located near Qom, suggesting that Iran may have planned to use low-grade nuclear material produced elsewhere to "feed into high-end centrifuge farms at the new site."  Spector also serves as head of the Center's Washington, D.C. office.
