AEI's Rubin: Plan to Give Iran Nuclear Reactors Is 'Inexcusable'

By    |   Wednesday, 24 Jun 2015 05:03 PM

A confidential plan in which the United States and other Western powers would give Iran nuclear reactors if it agrees to cut its atomic weapons program is "inexcusable," says Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at American Enterprise Institute.

"If you had a strategy which would empower and catalyze an Iranian nuclear program and its breakout capability, it would look just like what we have right now on top of which Iran is getting more than $100 billion in sanctions relief," Rubin said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"It really is inexcusable and the idea that we can trust Iran after they killed hundreds if not thousands of Americans over the years is just insane."

The Associated Press reports that Western powers are offering Tehran high-tech reactors under a proposed nuclear agreement, a proposal detailed in a confidential document obtained by the news service.

But with only six days left before the deadline for a nuclear limitations deal, there is serious doubt whether Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will meet the required concessions.

Rubin — who is also a senior lecturer at Naval Post Graduate School and author of "Dancing with the Devil: The Perils of Engaging Rogue Regimes," published by Encounter Books — said any deal "really is giving the Iranians a path to the bomb."

He added that even the International Atomic Energy Agency says this deal is not verifiable as far as making sure Iran is complying with it."

Rubin also weighed in on President Barack Obama's order that families who negotiate with terrorists who kidnap their loved ones should not face threats of federal prosecution.

"This is the new U.S. government policy to engage much more directly with terrorists … It's not just at home but abroad, but let's focus them on at home," he said.

"How do you think the Mexican drug cartels are looking at this? Our borders are already porous. We're basically giving open season to the cartels to seize Americans inside America."
