How We Duped the West... - The Telegraph
The man who for two years led Iran's nuclear negotiations has laid out in unprecedented detail how the regime took advantage of talks with Britain, France and Germany to forge ahead with its secret atomic programme.

In a speech to a closed meeting of leading Islamic clerics and academics, Hassan Rowhani, who headed talks with the so-called EU3 until last year, revealed how Teheran played for time and tried to dupe the West after its secret nuclear programme was uncovered by the Iranian opposition in 2002.

...

"From the outset, the Americans kept telling the Europeans, 'The Iranians are lying and deceiving you and they have not told you everything.' The Europeans used to respond, 'We trust them'," he said.


Questions for debate:

1) Does this information change your opinion regarding "the Iranian problem"?

2) Can Iran be trusted at all to negotiate honestly over the next few years?

3) With this "smoking gun" regarding Iran's past perfidy, should we give any credence to folks here who seek to negotiate with them?

1) Does this information change your opinion regarding "the Iranian problem"?
No. I always assumed this was the case. North Korea did the same and Clinton and Albright fell for it hook line and sinker.

2) Can Iran be trusted at all to negotiate honestly over the next few years?
No

3) With this "smoking gun" regarding Iran's past perfidy, should we give any credence to folks here who seek to negotiate with them?
Reagan said it best “Trust but verify”. If they are unwilling to allow full inspections including military facilities we should assume they have nukes.
