Hillary Clinton Backtracks From Her 2014 Enrichment Declaration On Iran

Tonight, Hillary Clinton came out in support of the agreement reached on the framework of a nuclear deal with Iran, which in part would still allow for nuclear enrichment at the main site at Natanz. In her statement, Clinton called the announcement an “important step toward a comprehensive agreement that would prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon and strengthen the security of the United States, Israel, and the region.”

Her statement stands in stark contrast to her declaration just last year that it is important “for there to be so little enrichment or no enrichment” because allowing any enrichment “will trigger an arms race in the Middle East.”
