Feb 14, 2012 NPEC's Executive Director Signs Letter to Urge Obama to Back Gold Standard
The Nonproliferation Policy Education Center and the Foreign Policy Initiative worked together on a letter to the President asking him to reconsider his decision to abandon the "Gold Standard" in favor of a case-by-case review. The Gold Standard requires non-nuclear weapons states to forgo uranium enrichment as well as spent-fuel reprocessing, and open themselves up to intrusive international inspections. NPEC and FPI argue that dropping the gold standard approach undermines global non-proliferation efforts and emboldens Iran because if the U.S. is willing to allow Vietnam and Jordan to make nuclear fuel, how will it convince Iran to refrain from doing this?

Feb 07, 2012 Obama Turns Bush's Nonproliferation Gold Standard into Lead
In an op-ed published by the National Review, NPEC's Executive Director looks into Obama's policy reversal and argues that leading and leaning on key nuclear suppliers to adopt the Gold Standard is our only option. Moreover, if the U.S. allows Jordan, Vietnam, South Korea, or Saudi Arabia to make nuclear fuel, it can forget about preventing any other country, including Iran, from doing so.

Dec 06, 2011 Greg Jones: Earliest Date Possible for Iran's First Bomb, February 2012
Senior Researcher Greg Jones argues that the IAEA's safeguards update shows that Western efforts to impede Iran’s centrifuge enrichment program continue to be ineffective.  Iran has maintained a steady production of 3.5% and 19.7% enriched uranium. The IAEA has also outlined the substantial progress Iran has made in the development of the non-nuclear components needed to produce nuclear weapons. If Iran were to now make an all-out effort to acquire nuclear weapons, it could probably do so in two to six months.

On the Frank Gaffney Show on Secure Freedom Radio, Henry Sokolski shows U.S. policy on Iran to be increasingly irrelevant. With the debate about Iran coming down to the difference between being two and eight months away from a bomb, Iran and its neighbors will begin to behave as if the nuke factor is now de facto.
