On Friday, the Center for Security Policy released a letter signed by 17 prominent security policy practitioners and other national leaders denouncing the Obama administration’s conduct of thenuclear talks with Iran and the seriously defective deal and any agreements that are likely to emerge from them, the Center for Security Policy reported via email communications.he letter addressed to U.S. House Speaker Boehner, U.S. Senators Reid and McConnell, and Congresswoman Pelosi and the rest ofCongress to repudiate this year’s nuclear diplomacy with Iran and dissects the terms of the agreement it is reportedly producing. The authors believe the United States and its Western allies have already given away too much to Iran and still more concessions appear to be in the offing.

Their professional assessment is that any accord along these lines will be a threat to our interests, allies and security. The Center for Security Policy, prominent security policy practitioners, and other national leaders said that the key problems with the incipient agreement identified in the open letter, which was organized by the Center for Security Policy, include the deal will effectively concede to Iran the “right” to enrich uranium and allow Iran to continue uranium enrichment. Furthermore, it will permit Iran to install new, still more advanced centrifuges and to retain its large stockpile of low-enriched uranium, and it will not require Iran to disassemble existing centrifuges, its underground Fordow enrichment facility or its plutonium-producing Arak heavy water reactor now under construction.

The signatories’ of the letter include former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Peter Hoekstra, former National Counterintelligence Executive Michelle Van Cleave, former Assistant Secretary of State for Verification and Compliance Paula DeSutter, former Assistant Secretary of Defense (Acting) Frank Gaffney, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Jack David, National Review Editor Rich Lowry, and Middle East Forum President Daniel Pipes. Along with the letter, a slide show was presented showing the dangers of agreeing with the talks and was presented by Fred Fleitz, Senior Fellow at Secure Freedom.

In their judgment, they stated that these dangerous U.S. concessions will do virtually nothing to stop, or even substantially to delay, Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. They note estimates by three leading Washington think tanks that Iran will retain its presently assessed capability of producing weapons-grade nuclear fuel in as little as four-to-six weeks from a decision to do so.

In addition to raising their concerns about these disturbing U.S. concessions, the authors of the letter expressed alarm that Iran is already defying a key premise of this year’s nuclear talks and prerequisite for any future deal… namely, that the regime in Tehran would cooperate fully with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In that connection, Iran was supposed to give IAEA inspectors unrestricted access to Iranian nuclear sites and answer outstanding questions about the military dimensions of its nuclear program. The signatories conclude that since Iran has failed to live up to these commitments even before an agreement was reached, there is no reason to believe it will abide by these or similar obligations in the final, comprehensive agreement that the Obama administration is trying to finalize by a November 24, 2014 deadline. Neither is there reason to expect that the mullahs will cooperate with efforts by the IAEA to monitor their future compliance with such an accord.

The authors of the joint letter also regard as wholly unacceptable President Obama’s reported intention to deny the U.S. Congress any say in the forthcoming nuclear agreement with Iran and his plan to suspend unilaterally statutorily mandated U.S. sanctions against Iran once a final accord is reached. It appears that Mr. Obama is proceeding in this fashion precisely because he knows that lawmakers on both sides of the aisle would find his deal unsupportable.
