PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Ed Turzanski, the John Templeton Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and La Salle University’s Assistant Vice-President for Government and Community Relations, criticized the nuclear deal reached with Iran during negotiations with the United States and five other world powers.

Turzanski told Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT that he does not believe Iran will hold up their end of the deal, which prevents them from enriching enough uranium for a nuclear weapon.

“This regime isn’t changing, and the deal the President signed was, ostensibly, to buy us time so that, by some miracle, the Mullahs will step aside and Jeffersonian democracy is going to break out and the Iranian people will be able to express themselves in a way that brings us peace, joy, and love. This entire agreement goes against everything the Administration laid out as a basic framework when they first started.”

Turzanski thinks the Iranians will have time to hide any weapons violations given the requirements agreed to by the International Atomic Energy Agency as part of the talks.

“There are no snap inspections. When the IAEA says it wants to visit a site, the Iranians have 14 days in which to respond.”

Turzanski also chided the President for, as he sees it, taking a harder line with Congress than with Iran.

“It’s still stunning, the extent to which this President will not miss an opportunity to vilify his domestic opponents and to threaten, not the Iranians if they don’t comply, but instead, at this time, as he’s announcing this agreement, he says, ‘Congress, if you get in the way, I will veto this.’”
