The Geneva Discord: Nuclear Peace Breakthrough or Historic Mistake?

By Jay Holmes

On November 23, 2013, the White House announced that it had just finalized the Geneva Accord, an “interim” agreement with Iran concerning its nuclear program. Given that other Geneva Accords have been concluded, and subsequently disregarded, it might be useful to specify it as the 2013 Geneva Accord. Since the announcement of the Accord, we have heard constant news chatter about what it means, who it impacts, and whether we should celebrate it or curse it. The answers to those questions depend on who is talking.
