The Washington Times is deeply concerned about the nuclear talks with Iran that got underway last weekend. A Times editorial worries that, at the end of these negotiations, Iran may be permitted to enrich uranium--and suggests that this would represent a departure from the traditional position of the United Nations and the United States.
In truth, this would represent no such departure. Long before these talks, the US signaled that Iran could be allowed to enrich uranium--as is permitted under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty--if new, more intrusive monitoring measures could ensure that the uranium isn't part of a weapons program.
So how does the Times manage to blur the actual position of the US and for that matter the UN? Via two maneuvers.
1) The Times says the UN has demanded "that Iran cease uranium enrichment." Well, that's technically a defensible formulation, but if you take "cease" to mean "permanently end," it's not true. UN resolutions call for Iran to "suspend" uranium enrichment--as a confidence building measure that could then lead to, as one resolution puts it, a "negotiated solution that guarantees Iran's nuclear program is for exclusively peaceful purposes."
Various Security Council members who voted on these resolutions have made it clear that uranium enrichment can be part of this scenario if Iran agrees to tight monitoring. That Iran's right to enrich uranium could be acknowledged under those circumstances is, Hillary Clinton told Congress in March of 2011, "the position of the international community, along with the United States."
