Video: Iran Experts Provide "Scorecard" for Final Nuclear Deal

On July 29, 2015, JINSA’s Gemunder Center Iran Task Force released a new report at a panel discussion to provide an expert analysis of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA), the final agreement with Iran on nuclear disarmament.

The Task Force – co-chaired by Ambassador Dennis Ross, who played a leading role in shaping the Middle East peace process for 12 years under three administrations, and Ambassador Eric Edelman,former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy under President George W. Bush – has detailed a comprehensive series of questions and concerns in three previous reports this year.

This new report will analyze the extent to which the JCPA addresses these issues, which included:

  • Key restrictions being removed in 5-15 years
  • R&D on advanced centrifuges
  • Front-loaded sanctions relief – including up to $150 billion in unfrozen assets – with no automatic “snapback” mechanism
  • An end to the U.N. arms embargo against Iran
  • No anytime, anywhere inspections

The panelists included:

Dr. Michael Makovsky
Former Special Assistant in the Office of the Secretary of Defense

John Hannah
Former National Security Advisor to the Vice President
Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies
Iran Task Force Member

Dr. Ray Takeyh
Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and former State Department Advisor on Iran
Iran Task Force Member
