The source of the new intelligence report on Iran's Nuclear Program

THE AUSTRALIAN claims that the original source of the new NIE report on Iran's nuclear program is Ali Reza Ashgari, an Iranian general, who fled Iran to Turkey last February. This report, despite its minor inconsistencies with the realities on the ground, is a very interesting read.
By minor inconsistencies, I am referring to this sentence:
He [Ali Reza Ashgari] confirmed the regime had been building two nuclear plants in southern Iran, one in Arak and the other in Bushehr, and that both had been using centrifuges to enrich uranium.
There are no centrifuges in Arak or Bushehr. They are in Natanz.
Besides, I think the name of this person is mistyped; The correct name is probably Ali Reza Asghari (rather than Ashgari).

He is a brave man by exposing the mullahs' dangerous ambitions. Btw, it was first Christopher Hitchens who pointed at this on CNN.
