The White House is currently examining ways to enable Iran to have its own “domestic” uranium enrichment program, according to a senior Obama administration official.
As the details of a six month interim nuclear deal between Iran and Western nations are hashed out, the White House is exploring the practicality of permitting Iran to continue certain enrichment activities, an issue that Iranian officials have described as a “redline.”
“Over the next six months, we will explore, in practical terms, whether and how Iran might end up with a limited, tightly constrained, and intensively monitored civilian nuclear program, including domestic enrichment,” White House National Security Council (NSC) spokesman Caitlin Hayden told the Washington Free Beacon.
“The first step requires agreement on all aspects of the comprehensive solution,” Hayden said. “Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.”
Well, if Iran has declared it a "red line," we don't have to take it seriously, do we?
And for Buster2010, If Iran abided by all of the nuclear agreements it has signed, nobody would be upset. But to claim that the treaties give them the right to enrich, then have them violate their agreements, seems, well, "dishonest" isn't quite strong enough.
