The Iranian Self-inspection Delusion

The U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is going to let Iran self-inspect several of its most sensitive nuclear installations, and the Obama White House says its fine with that. Iran is to provide the IAEA with photos and videos of locations linked to weapons work, “taking into account military concerns.”

That wording suggests the agency won’t get photo or video information from areas Iran says are off-limits because they have military significance. Meanwhile, the White House is downplaying the report, saying it has “every confidence” in the IAEA and its approach to Iran.

What could go wrong?
