Capitol Hill Webinar – How Far is Iran from Nuclear Breakout and Just What Can Be Done About it?

February 3 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


David Albright Physicist, Founder and President of the Institute for Science and International Security

About this webinar: Lieutenant General Aviv Kochavi, the Commander in Chief of the IDF has said that Iranian nuclear breakout is a matter of months, maybe even weeks, and has instructed the army to prepare a number of operational plans. It is the opinion of the Israeli Defense Establishment that the JCPOA 2015 nuclear deal with Iran was fatally flawed and that it would be a serious mistake to return to it. Meanwhile the Biden administration has vowed to either return to it or to make it, in the words of Secretary of State, Tony Blinken, “longer and stronger.” However, so far the Iranians have signaled that they are firmly against any revisions or modifications to the original deal.
What are the options for the United States? What are they for Israel? And just how far along are the Iranians in their nuclear program?
