May 14, 2012 Henry Sokolski in the NRO: "Iran: Obama's 5% Uranium Enrichment Solution is No Solution at All"
This article argues that President Obama’s concession to allow Iran to enrich uranium up to 5% would not only make it easier for Tehran to break out and make nuclear weapons whenever it wants, but also give Iran’s neighbors every reason to demand similar nuclear-fuel-making “rights.” To prevent a nuclear Iran, we need to make it clear to the mullahs that the costs of violating the NPT by acquiring or testing a nuclear device will be much higher than anything they have yet suffered.  
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.
Oct 28, 2011 Henry Sokolski & Autumn Hanna: The Next Solyndra: Riskier and Radioactive
NPEC executive director Henry Sokolski and Taxpayers for Common Sense's Autumn Hanna draw comparisons between the failed solar company Solyndra and uranium enrichment company USEC. Solyndra, a federal loan guarantee recipient, has already gone bankrupt, and USEC will certainly follow a similar path of wasting taxpayer resources if the government approves a loan guarantee for them.
Sep 09, 2011 Greg Jones in TNR: Iran Already is a Nuclear State
In The New Republic, NPEC Senior Analyst Greg S. Jones presents the case for the fulfillment of Iran's nuclear ambitions.
Sep 07, 2011 FAS Posts NPEC Case for Tightening US Nuclear Export Nonproliferation Rules
Fukushima and Iran’s use of civilian nuclear energy to get the bomb serve as fair warnings to tighten conditions on future nuclear exports.  Under existing nuclear rules, expanding nuclear power globally also risks spreading nuclear fuel making activities. Since there is no reliable method of using nuclear inspections to assure that such fuel making won’t be quickly diverted to make bombs, promoting the Gold Standard in civilian nuclear cooperation with foreign states is essential to non-proliferation efforts.

Jun 30, 2011 Henry Sokolski in the Weekly Standard: Europe's Anti-Nuclear Power Outburst
NPEC's Executive Director argues that Europe’s current nuclear intermission is less a political show than an energy policy experiment to determine what the safest, cleanest, cheapest energy future is.
