US surrender on breakout time to a bomb leads to breakthrough on a nuclear deal

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report March 29, 2015, 1:53 PM (IDT)

President Barack Obama and John Kerry promised that the nuclear deal to be signed with Iran in Switzerland this week will give the world powers a year’s warning after the Islamic Republic’s breakout up to an operational weapon. debkafile’s intelligence sources disclose that, to clinch the framework deal in Lausanne, even this concession, which imperils Israel, the Gulf and the Middle East at large, was not enough. In a further surrender, the president authorized the US delegation to fall back again on the space granted the world powers for reacting to breakthrough, dropping it from a year to six or seven months:

Our nuclear experts explain why even that grim arithmetic does not do full justice to the advantages Iran has gained for its push to a nuke:

1. Because Iran is permitted to continue running up to 6,500 elderly IR-1 centrifuges for enriching uranium to a low 3.5 percent grade, even if it is permitted to keep only 500 kilos of its stock of 7.5-8 –tons, Tehran would still be able to build a bomb in 7-8 months, i.e. a lot faster than Obama and Kerry have promised.

2. But if Tehran activates secret facilities undetected by US intelligence, it can produce a larger quantity of enriched uranium and so shrink the time between breakout and bomb to three, at most, four months, totally insufficient for the world powers to detect, step in and abort the bomb’s manufacture, in view of the following considerations:

US President Barack Obama made a public address at the White House on Thursday after Iranian and world negotiators announced that a framework deal had been reached over the Islamic regime's nuclear program.

According to the president his negotiating team, led by US Secretary of State John Kerry, "has reached an historic understanding with Iran which, if fully implemented, will prevent it from a nuclear weapon."

"I am convinced that if this framework leads to a final comprehensive deal it will make our country, our allies and our world safer," he asserted.

Israeli Reaction: Iran Deal an 'Historic Mistake'

Israeli officials say new framework deal with Iran "will make the world far more dangerous." Lapid, Herzog and Livni speak out as well.

Left and right in Israel were on Thursday night united in their opposition to the new framework agreement reached between Iran and six world powers on Tehran’s nuclear program.

Israeli government officials said that the framework deal will be remembered as a "historic mistake".

"If an agreement is reached on the basis of this framework, it is an historic mistake which will make the world far more dangerous," said the officials, briefing journalists on condition of anonymity.

"It is a bad framework which will lead to a bad and dangerous agreement. The framework gives international legitimacy to Iran's nuclear program, the only aim of which is to produce a nuclear bomb," they added.

Meanwhile, Yesh Atid chairman MK Yair Lapid wrote on Facebook that “there is no opposition and coalition when it comes to the Iranian nuclear issue.”

“We all share the concern that the Iranians will bypass [the agreement], and Israel must protect its security interests. The ayatollah regime in Iran has been engaged in years of fraud and deception and promotes its nuclear program under the nose of the West,” he continued

Lapid said that he is convinced that Iran's leaders will try to deceive the international community as they did in the past.

"There is no basis for determining that today Iran was prevented from achieving nuclear weapons. Israel should cooperate with the United States and the international community to ensure that there is no case of deception which endangers Israel's security and the security of the world,” he wrote.

MKs Yitzhak Herzog and Tzipi Livni, heads of the “Zionist Union”, said that “we are entering a new phase in dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat.”

"We must remember that the main part is yet to come and we must ensure that the final agreement will set the Iranian nuclear program back so as to prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons and to ensure Israel's security interests,” they added.

MK Amir Peretz, also of the “Zionist Union”, said that the framework agreement should raise concern in Israel.

"The prime minister should establish teams that include representatives of all factions from the coalition and the opposition, who will cooperate with one another and promote the Israeli position in both public and discretionary ways," he said.

This may very well put Israel into a position where they feel they have to act.

Makes me wonder what those in our Congressional delegation visiting Israel this week, have been discussing with Netanyahu. Would love to be a fly on that wall. :grin:
