According to the ruling Mullahs in Iran, President Obama has agreed to allow them to continue to enrich Uranium. Michael Rubin of the National Review provides quotes from last Friday’s official sermon given by the Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati:

"These meetings [in Geneva] were a great victory and a sign of strength and dignity of the country and proved to the Westerners that they can’t bully the Islamic Republic of Iran…

"The Deputy Foreign Minister of the United States [sic] tried on three occasions during the meetings to meet Jalili, but Jalili did not accept…"

"At the end, and after the end of one of the meetings an American authority, approached Jalili and says that he wants to engage in a dialogue, and Jalili accepts the wish of the Deputy Foreign Minister of the United States…In the beginning of the conversation, between the Deputy Foreign Minister of the United States and Jalili, the American authority discussed the nuclear issue and stresses the importance of issues related to nuclear energy to Jalili, but Jalili, addressing the Deputy American Foreign Minister, says that the issues related to Iran’s nuclear question have been solved and there is no reason to discuss them…"

Also according to the Iranian new agency the Obama administration has made clear its acceptance of Iran’s uranium enrichment program:

Representatives from Iran, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and three western states have convened in two-day talks in Vienna on October 19-20 to discuss supply of nuclear fuel for Tehran reactor.

Informed sources close to the talks in Vienna said that the US has in a series of secret meetings informed its European partners of Washington’s decision on acceptance of uranium enrichment in Iran.

The sources reiterated that a number of Washington’s EU allies have voiced strong protest against the decision, calling it a too big concession to Iran and a second blow to their stance by the US administration after the White House gave up suspension of enrichment activities in Iran as a precondition for talks with the Islamic Republic.

The meeting in Vienna is aimed at a discussion of a proposal by the US, Russia and France to supply one of the Iranian research reactors with high-level enriched uranium for producing radiomedicine.

Response: Are the Mullahs correct? Has the Obama administration secretly agreed to allow Iran to continue enriching Uranium to the chagrin of our European allies? Also has the President agreed to let them be supplied with enriched uranium for medical purposes?

It is doubtful that the Iranian officials are being entirely truthful to their people about the on-going negotiations. However according to Obama administration sources, Time has posted that President Obama personally weighed in at least three times during secret negotiations with the Iranians over the last four months and reading between the lines, the Iranians seem convinced that they already have made some kind of a deal with the President.

According to a Powerline article today, Iran double-crossed Obama on the deal and the article gives some details that explain why they still feel that their enrichment program has nevertheless been agreed to. It will be interesting to see how the President responds to today’s development.

I am sure that the Israelis would be most interested in exactly what if anything was agreed to. However Pres. Obama seems to be keeping them and maybe even his own diplomats in the dark—a very risky policy to say the least.        *Top
