(Worthy News) - The White House on Wednesday said it was 'confident' in the abilities of the International Agency for Atomic Energy to monitor and inspect the possible military dimensions on Iran's past nuclear work and was 'comfortable' with confidential arrangements between the IAEA and Tehran to ensure compliance with the nuclear deal signed on July 14.

"As the administration has said before -- including in classified briefings for both chambers of Congress -- we are confident in the agency's technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran's former program, issues that in some cases date back more than a decade," White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said Wednesday. He was speaking in response to an Associated Press report that revealed the IAEA has ceded investigative authority of a suspected nuclear site to Tehran.

"Just as importantly, the IAEA is comfortable with arrangements, which are unique to the agency's investigation of Iran’s historical activities. When it comes to monitoring Iran's behavior going forward, the IAEA has separately developed the most robust inspection regime ever peacefully negotiated to ensure Iran's current program remains exclusively peaceful, the overarching objective of the JCPOA. Beyond that, we are not going to comment on a purported draft IAEA document," Price said. [ Source ]

  1. It's a worldview thing. Kinda like; "we Americans aren't any better than anyone else. Who,are we to tell the Iranians that they can't have a Nuke? We have one, Israel has one, etc..." It's also moral equivalency thing because of the way that they view the world.
