iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The International Atomic Energy Agency says it has “serious concerns” about a possible military dimension to Iran’s nuclear program.

Iran continues to insist it intends only to generate energy, but the IAEA said Iran is not cooperating so it cannot “conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities.”

The confidential report, obtained by ABC News, comes two days after Iran refused to allow inspectors into one of its military sites and at a time of heightened tension.  The FBI has put agents across the United States on alert for any possible Iran-related threat.
