Israeli Leader Goes After Obama For Nuclear Agreement

The controversial agreement with Iran will not prevent the country’s leaders from obtaining nuclear weapons, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Wednesday.

“I wish we could bar (Iran’s) path to a nuclear weapon, but there we have a substantial disagreement,” he said in a National Public Radio interview. “Iran has in fact been given two paths to the bomb. One is if they cheat and the second is if they keep to the deal. They win either way.”

The Hill reported that President Obama admitted the agreement has flaws. He told The New York Times on Tuesday that his administration is “not measuring this deal by whether we are solving every problem that can be traced back to Iran.” Rather, the goal is to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, he said.

Netanyahu is skeptical that the agreement will achieve that purpose. “If the idea is at least we get them away from a bomb, no you don’t. No. 1, Iran will cheat. Second, suppose they don’t cheat ... within a decade — 12 years at most — they’ll be free to build and enrich uranium at whatever scale they want,” he told NPR.

The deal calls for frequent inspections of various facilities, but the Israeli leader pointed out that Iranian officials will have advance notice. “It’s like telling a drug dealer, ‘We’re going to check your meth lab in 24 days,’” he said.
