Israeli Expert: U.S. Acting as “Iran’s Lawyer”


Iran is systematically testing the boundaries of the nuclear deal and the Obama administration has repeatedly acted as “Iran’s lawyers,” Israeli security expert Dr. Emily Landau, head of the Arms Control Program at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, told the Jerusalem Post on Monday. “Iran is continuing to push the envelope, trying to get as much as it can,” she said.

Landau referred to a report published last week by the Institute for Science and International Security, headed by former IAEA inspector David Albright, noting that Iran received a number of exemptions from Washington ahead of the implementation of the nuclear deal. Landau also cited a July AP report showing that in 11 years, restrictions on Iranian uranium enrichment would begin to be lifted, rather than the previously believed 15 years.
