Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran Puts the World's Safety at Risk

April 3, 2015  •  Qartz

On April 2 officials announced they had agreed on "key parameters" for the long-anticipated nuclear deal between the United States, its allies, and the Islamic Republic of Iran. Coincidentally, just as the Obama administration's Middle East policy is in complete meltdown, with Sunni and Iranian-backed Shiite extremists murdering their way through Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.

Worried yet? The Obama administration isn't.

Iran's Negotiating Triumph Over Obama and America
The U.S. is surrendering control of verification to the United Nations, where our influence is weak.

April 3, 2015  •  The Wall Street Journal

President Obama believes that the nuclear "framework" concluded Friday in Switzerland is a historic achievement. Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif, says he believes the same. Those two positions are incompatible.

Mr. Zarif is also a loyal servant of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who believes that the West, in particular the U.S., and Iran are locked in a "collision of evil and evil ways on one side and the path of . . . religious obedience and devotion on the other," as he said in July 2014.

The election of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has created hope for a less belligerent Islamic Republic that will end Tehran's nuclear intransigence and the brutal repression of Iran's long-suffering people. To some, Mr. Rouhani is a "moderate" who should be lauded for his pragmatism as a former nuclear negotiator and for bringing a more temperate tone to the presidency after the bellicosity of his predecessor. To others, he is a "regime loyalist" and a "master of nuclear deception," consistently mendacious in negotiating over nukes, and cold-blooded in his full-throttle support for Tehran's involvement in Syria's killing fields.

Stopping an Undetectable Iranian Bomb

March 26, 2013  •  The Wall Street Journal

Iran's nuclear program dominated last week's meeting between U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. A key challenge for both leaders: how to stop Iran's rapid advance toward "critical capability."

Critical capability means the point at which Iran could dash to produce enough weapons-grade uranium or separated plutonium for one bomb so quickly that the International Atomic Energy Agency or a Western intelligence service would be unable to detect the dash until it is over.
