I see it as a really straightforward measure to slow down an enrichment program that was going gangbusters.Like Lewis, arms control experts have generally been positive about the deal. I loved this line from Lewis:
So you ask, "Does it slow it down?" Yes. "Does it slow it down in a way that is verifiable?" Yes. "Does it slow it down more than bombing it would?" Yes. "Okay, good deal."
Well, there was always a deal to be had here if reasonable people could make reasonable compromises. I never really count on that, but it seems like they did it.
