IAEA Goes "Goodwill" Hunting

As an expression of "goodwill," Iran says it will allow the UN's nuclear watchdog onto a military installation that had been previously deemed out of bounds--if certain stringent conditions are met:
Iran will grant U.N. inspectors access to a military complex where the U.N. nuclear agency suspects secret atomic work has been carried out, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported Tuesday.

Tehran had previously banned U.N. inspectors from visiting the Parchin installation, southeast of Tehran, but a statement by Iran's permanent envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency said the visit will now be allowed in a gesture of good will.

However, it would require an agreement between the two sides on a guidelines for the inspection, ISNA reported.
Guidelines for inspection, huh? So you mean the Agency will be allowed to poke around here but not there?

That doesn't sound like "goodwill." That sounds like the same old Shia shenanigans.
