Yousaf Butt

LONDON -- It's hard to be certain, but it may be because the IAEA's track record under its previous head of safeguards, Olli Heinonen, is marred by the botched analysis of the Syrian site at Al Kibar. The Iranians may be insisting on carrying out the Parchin inspections themselves to make sure they, too, are not wrongly accused by the IAEA.

Is Iran's Nuclear Program Really Getting a 24-Day Pass?

Paul Heroux

This 24 days issue has been a talking point of many opponents of the JCPOA. However, I believe that it is because either the opponents have this idea have not read and understand the 24 day issue, and or they are letting politics get in the way of accepting this necessary and fair provision.

November 10 will not go down as a stellar day for U.S. diplomacy. The premature faux hoopla over the scuttled first-stage nuclear agreement with Iran yielded little more than a legacy of miscues and a dozen eggs on Uncle Sam's face.

An Iranian's View on a Nuclear Iran

Paul Heroux | Posted 05.29.2012 | World
Paul Heroux

While it is not wise to use one interview as a basis to form an opinion or policy, one point of view is better than no point of view. I am fortunate to know someone from Iran briefly studying in the U.S. that is willing to talk about this issue from an Iranian point of view before he returns to Iran.
