He’s indicating a willingness to “resume talks” about Iran’s nuclear program.
That’s a mistake. It gives false credibility to the US government’s claim — in the face of a complete absence of evidence that Iran’s government is pursuing nuclear weapons, and despite its “supreme leader’s” long-standing fatwah declaring their development and possession a sin — that there’s some kind of legitimate “controversy” here.
On the other hand, maybe it’s not a mistake. Maybe it’s one hand washing the other. After all, the US government has done a bang-up job of keeping the mullahs in power in Iran for more than 30 years now with this kind of thing.
