Fact check

Iran wants (and deserves) to be treated like other countries with commercial nuclear operations. It complies fully with NPT provisions. Washington and Israel are nuclear outlaws. 

Iran's operations are more intensively monitored than any other nation. Washington and Israel prohibit inspections for good reason. Massive cheating would be found. Imperial powers never tell all or say they're sorry.

NPT permits uranium enrichment as long as countries agree to rigorous monitoring. WP editors better check their sources. They, in turn, need to find another line of work. 

Yousaf Butt is a nuclear physicist. He's a Federation of American Scientists consultant. In January, his Foreign Policy article headlined "Stop the Madness," saying:

"Despite all the hype, Iran's nuclear program has yet to violate international law. It's time to calm down, think, and above all halt the rush to war."

"The IAEA considers 20 percent enriched uranium to be low-enriched uranium and 'a fully adequate isotopic barrier' to weaponization."

Iran complies. It does nothing illegal. NPT doesn't prevent a nuclear weapons "capability" or "option." Dozens of nations have it.
