Iran Claims to Remove Core of Arak Heavy Water Reactor

AFP’s report on the possible decommissioning of the Arak heavy-water reactor in Iran is somewhat confusing, because it begins by factually stating that Iran has “removed the core of its Arak heavy water reactor and filled part of it with cement,” quoting a spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization to that effect.

Kerry Lies to Congress About Iran Deal & ‘Additional Protocol’

Secretary of State John Kerry misled the House Foreign Affairs Committee in his attempt to defend the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, claiming in his opening statement that Iran had complied with the interim agreement “completely and totally,” and that Iran was “required” by the deal to ratify a key agreement that would prevent it from developing dangerous nuclear technologies in the future. In fact, Iran violated parts of the interim agreement, and there is no guarantee that it will ratify the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Report: International Inspectors Fail to Stop Syria Chemical Weapons

International inspectors failed to stop Syria from stockpiling chemical weapons, in spite of an international agreement in 2013, according to a new report by the Wall Street Journal on Friday. International inspectors were skeptical of Syria’s claims to have disposed of its stockpiles, but were afraid that reporting violations would destroy the overall deal: “Members of the inspection team didn’t push for answers, worried that it would compromise their primary objective of getting the regime to surrender the 1,300 tons of chemicals it admitted to having.”
