White House

When the Obama administration refused to grant a visa to Iran's designated ambassador to the United Nations, Hamid Aboutalebi, it was continuing a long-running hostile U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic. The visa denial seems strange considering that the Obama administration is negotiating with Iran about its nuclear-power program. Progress is being made, but the Obama administration refuses to talk straight about Iran's nuclear intentions, argues Sheldon Richman, who highlights Iran's often overlooked policy toward nuclear weapons.
