Why is the Iran nuclear deal so dangerous? Here’s my detailed analysis of the 159-page agreement.

iran-nuclear-graphic(Denver, Colorado) — I have finished reading the 159-page Iran nuclear deal, known as the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” (or JCPOA), as well as numerous analyses by various Middle East think tanks, and I’ve consulted with a number of Mideast experts, nuclear experts, and former senior U.S. government officials.

Here’s my conclusion: this deal is insane.

That may not be the most diplomatic way to put it, but I’m afraid that’s the truth.

  • The deal doesn’t live up to the very “red lines” that President Obama and his team set.
  • The deal doesn’t end Iran’s nuclear program — it legalizes, legitimizes, expands it.
  • The deal provides Iran not just one but two paths to The Bomb — in 10 to 15 years if Iran keeps the agreement, and much sooner if Iran cheats.
  • The details inside the deal are absolutely stunning — and catastrophically dangerous for the U.S., Israel and our Sunni Arab neighbors.

As former CIA Director James Woolsey put it, “This would be a perfectly reasonable agreement if it were with say, Denmark.” That is, it is a reasonably sane agreement to make with a peaceful, moderate, friendly government. But as Woolsey, a Democrat who ran the CIA during the Clinton administration, notes, to make this particular deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran with a history of cheating is a foolish and dangerous act.

The American people and their representatives in Congress must do everything possible to stop this deal from becoming U.S. law.

Tomorrow night, I will give an address in Denver and walk through the main problems in the deal. If you’re in or near Colorado, please join us. The event begins at 7pm. Details below.

Since many of you will not able to attend, however, I thought it best to publish my notes and let you study the deal for yourself.

I hope you’ll take the time to read the analysis carefully, and share it with others. Also, please post your comments on our “Epicenter Team” page on Facebook.
