A fundamental requirement of the interim deal — Iran's cooperation with International Atomic Energy Agency personnel — is not being fulfilled. The White House's own fact sheet on the interim deal listed Iran's obligations:
Provide daily access by IAEA inspectors at Natanz and Fordow.This daily access will permit inspectors to review surveillance camera footage to ensure comprehensive monitoring. This access will provide even greater transparency into enrichment at these sites and shorten detection time for any non-compliance.
It is even more troubling that the administration hasn't reported back to Congress and the American people on Iran's refusal to comply. Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies was instrumental in designing anti-Iran sanctions. He warns, "I hope the Obama administration doesn't adopt an approach of punting on demands for full disclosure on past nuclear weaponization activities or they will find themselves with insufficient leverage after a deal to design and implement a verification and inspection regime that permits weapons inspectors full access to the any suspected site." But that seems to be precisely what it is doing.
This is why the West must insist Iran ship out its nuclear centrifuges and stockpiles, dismantle the heavy water plant at Arak, destroy warheads and give up the notion of a "right to enrich." We can assume that whatever is left in the country (e.g. centrifuges, stockpiles) will be used for nefarious purposes. Dubowtiz explains, "Iranian nuclear mendacity has been persistent, pervasive and pernicious. As as result, you cannot design a technical algorithm that can solve what is essentially a strategic problem, which is the nature and conduct of this regime. If Iran refuses to come clean on its past nuclear weaponization activities, and the IAEA doesn't get unfettered, 'go anywhere, go anytime' access to any Iranian site, a nuclear deal will not be worth the paper it is written on."
