Intelligence operatives in the US and its allied nations have sold Iran flawed technological components in an attempt to sabotage the country's nuclear enrichment program, CBS News revealed Wednesday evening.US intelligence is obviously taking it's cue from the Back to the Future movie, where Doc Brown sold Libyan terrorists old pinball machine parts in exchange for enriched plutonium.
In January 2007, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Agency, Vice-President Gholamreza Aghazadeh, said after an explosion at the Natanz nuclear facility (the first Iranian plant to attempt enrichment) that some of the equipment had been "manipulated."
And there you have it.
Marty meets Doc at the parking lot of the Twin Pines Mall. Doc shows him a time machine built in a DeLorean DMC-12 sports car. The time machine portion of the car channels 1.21 gigawatts of power generated by plutonium through what the Doc calls the flux capacitor, but the car must be going 88 miles per hour to travel through time. And then:
[talking about the Time Machine...]
Marty McFly: [looks through a camcorder] This is uh... This is heavy duty, Doc. This is great. Uh... does it run, like... on regular unleaded gasoline?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Unfortunately no, it requires something with a little more kick - plutonium.
Marty McFly: Uh... plutonium? Wait. [lowers the camcorder by his side and points to the DeLorean]
Marty McFly: Are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Hey, hey, hey. Keep rolling. Keep rolling, there. [Marty looks through the camcorder again]
Dr. Emmett Brown: No, no, no. This sucker's electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 jigawatts of electricity I need.
Marty McFly: Doc, you don't just walk into a store and buy plutonium. Did you rip that off?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Shhhhhh. Of course. From a group of Libyan nationalists. They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and in turn, gave them a shoddy bomb-casing full of used pinball machine parts! Come on! Let's get you a radiation suit. We must prepare to reload.
