Iran negotiations failing - will Iran get the bomb?

“Barack Obama made outreach to Iran the cornerstone of his policy toward that country. In his first interview as president, he declared, ‘If countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fist, they will find an extended hand from us.’ In effect, though, this desperate diplomacy transformed Obama into Tehran’s useful idiot.” – Michael Rubin, AEI

In a just published piece, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) Middle East expert Michael Rubin writes that President Obama’s policy of negotiating with Iran without preconditions is not producing productive results, and is only allowing Iran to buy time for their nuclear program.  With the latest International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report on Iran’s nuclear program likely to be leaked this week, Iranian nuclear capability continues to grow.

Other new pieces from Rubin on Iran include:

Michael Rubin is a resident scholar at AEI and a former Pentagon official whose major research area is the Middle East, with a special focus on Iran.  He has also lived and conducted research in Iran.  He can be reached at [email protected].
