On his podcast this week, Ben Caspit hosts Brig. Gen. (res) Prof. Jacob Nagel, a former Israeli acting National Security Advisor. The ups and downs in the Vienna talks, says Nagel, are not real drama. They are well-orchestrated stories that the Iranians are running, with all the climax points fixed well in advance. Nagel explains that the way things stand now, there is no returning to the 2015 nuclear agreement, adding, “Even the Biden administration’s special envoy on Iran, Robert Malley, understands that.” The reason, he says, is that mistakes made at the time enabled the Iranians to advance their nuclear ambitions over the years.
