U.S. Officials Fear Russian Smugglers May Sell Uranium on Black Market

Last month, there were reports of a joint effort between Eastern European countries, especially Moldova, and the FBI to crack down on nuclear smugglers. The deadly contraband for sale in those accounts was cesium, which could be used to create dirty bombs. The authorities were somewhat skeptical about these black marketeers possessing serious nuclear bomb fuel.

President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran took another hit on Tuesday, as word arrived via Reuters that the Iranians have stopped dismantling centrifuges in two of their uranium enrichment plants.

Technicians work at a uranium processing site in Isfahan 340 km (211 miles) south of the Iranian capital Tehran, March 30, 2005.

Fact Check: Deal Makes It Easier for Iran to Develop Nukes

And third, it provides billions of dollars in sanctions relief that Iran will use to further its nuclear aims.

Iran’s Humiliation Of Obama Continues: Sanctions Must End Instantly When Deal Signed

The worst thing about this farce, assuming it ends with sanctions restored and Obama babbling about how the Iranians messed up his beautiful deal, is that it always involved conceding precious legitimacy to the terror state. Iran wasn’t required to make any concessions on its fanaticism, embrace of terrorism, hatred of Israel, or even hatred of America. They were put on a glide path to nuclear weapons in 10 years or less, without agreeing to anything that would contradict the silly story they’ve been peddling for years about how they just want peaceful nuclear energy for civilian consumption.
