They all urged a robust US response "to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability" even though BPC and Obama officials know Tehran's development is entirely peaceful, commercial, and legal according to Nuclear Non-Proliferating Treaty provisions.
Signed on July 1, 1968, NPT became effective March 5, 1970. Notably, Iran was one of its first signatories in 1968. It permits uranium enrichment for peaceful, commercial purposes.
Iran's program is entirely non-military. Nonetheless, it's maliciously targeted unfairly and illegally even though it fully cooperates with IAEA inspectors. Monitoring is constant, directly or through installed surveillance cameras operating round-the-clock.
In contrast, India, Pakistan, Israel and America are nuclear outlaws. Their policies endanger humanity. BPC's unconcerned.
On January 24, its press release headlined, "Stopping the Clock on Iran's Nuclear Development: Bipartisan Policy Center's New Report Recommends More Credible Threat of Military Action Against Iran," saying:

BPC's new report "argues that to prevent a nuclear Iran, the US must demonstrate its resolve to do whatever is necessary, including taking military action."
