Greed on the part of Iran in trying to hammer out a liberal nuclear disarmament deal with the United States may "save us from ourselves," says Fred Fleitz, chief analyst and founder of LIGNET.com, a global intelligence and forecasting service.

"It appears that the Iranians don't like the deal that's being offered to them by the west. In terms of western interest in Israel and Middle East security, it's a terrible deal but the Iranians want more," Fleitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We may be in a situation where the Iranians are going to save us from ourselves.

"That because the deal is based on a number of faulty premises," Fleitz believes.

"The most important one concerns uranium enrichment. The hardest thing about making a nuclear bomb is making nuclear fuel and the jump from natural uranium to reactor grade is difficult," he said.

"The Obama administration, since they could not get the Iranians to agree to give up all their enriched uranium … they decided to redefine the terms of the debate. They said, well, just get rid of your 20 percent uranium because the reactor grade uranium is not a significant threat. Untrue.

"There's at least three major studies [that say] the Iranians can make a nuclear weapon, enough fuel for one nuclear weapon, in about two months, maybe a week or two less, using either form of uranium. But the Obama administration's prepared to let them keep the reactor grade uranium because they're falsely claiming it is not a serious threat."

Fleitz said former Ambassador John Bolton and other experts are trying to get the word out.

"This is just not right. Now, unfortunately, this is sort of a central premise for these negotiations. But, fortunately, the Iranians want even more and it may stop a bad deal from coming about," he said.
