The Obama administration is puzzled. They’re convinced that Iran is committed to a process of negotiations over its nuclear program that will forestall its efforts to build a bomb and begin a new period of détente between the Islamist regime and the West.
Moreover, they’ve been preaching endlessly that the interim agreement signed in November 2013 “froze” the Iranian program in place.
How then to explain the fact that, as the International Atomic Energy Agency has reported, the size of their stockpile of nuclear fuel has increased by more than 20 percent over the last 18 months while they were talking with the West and supposedly freezing their nuclear work in place?…
A two-paragraph story from Reuters reports that the U.S. expects Iran to reduce its stockpile by June 30.
