While the deal's prospects will primarily be

Editorial: The Opposite of Moderation Categories: International Security, Iran     Author: Colin Rubenstein

Those who were hoping last year's nuclear deal would lead to positive change in Iranian politics and foreign policy can be assured that change does indeed appear to be occurring. Unfortunately for the world, however, virtually all change so far appears to be for the worse.

Vigilance, not misplaced enthusiasm, needed in the wake of Iran deal implementation

Vigilance, not misplaced enthusiasm, needed in the wake of Iran deal implementation Categories: International Security, Iran, Op-eds     Author: Colin Rubenstein

It's important to remember that the steps Iran has taken in order to have the sanctions removed do not represent the dismantling of Iran's nuclear program but only a partial rollback​ of certain aspects of it and mothballing​ or disconnecting other enrichment hardware.

"It's no secret," the President declared in an April 2 address, "that the Isra
