Lake fabricates a story where Iran is breaking a deal in 2002. Is he just making that up? What deal? If he's referring to Arak? Natanz? Neither of these production plants (heavy water/ enriched uranium) had to be reported to the IAEA. Speaking of deal, all through 2002-06, Iran made overtures to the US, all of which were rebuffed. If Lake wants us to believe that in 2002 Bush was trying to reach a deal with Iran, then all I can say is that The New Republic has found its new Stephen Glass.
This is hilarious. To start, Natanz did have to be reported to the IAEA. As did Qom. As a condition for not sending the Iran file to the UN Security Council, Iran agreed to the additional protocol and the deal I wrote in the prior comment with the EU 3. Also North Korea was a signatory to the NPT when it acknowledged that they had built a bomb. That is the break out problem.
