Fact vs. Fiction: The J.C.P.O.A and Iran's Nuclear Weapons Ambitions
Course DescriptionPresident Donald Trump calls it "the worst deal America ever made," and has de-certified it. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu claims it "paves the way for Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon." Signatories to the J.C.P.O.A.(Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) stand firm--no changes, no more negotiations. IAEA inspectors say Iran is in full compliance. Who's right? What are the facts? Critics: The J.C.P.O.A. provides a clear pathway for Iran to obtain a nuclear arsenal on an industrial scale. Iran gets $100+ billion dollars of previously frozen assets which it can use to support terrorism. The deal will enable Iran to reduce "breakout time" to only a few weeks. Supporters: No uranium enrichment facilities are permitted except at Natanz. Natanz is limited to least efficient centrifuges for ten years. No enrichment of uranium is allowed beyond 3.67%. Arak heavy-water facility must be redesigned to prevent production of plutonium fuel and all spent fuel must be exported. Mr. Kahn will share thoughts and information on both sides of this controversial issue.
