Biden administration officials and European diplomats have been negotiating an American reentry into Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in Vienna in recent weeks. As talks continue, some American allies and experts have expressed concern at the pace of the president’s attempts to revive the deal.


Nuclear weapons expert David Albright joined Dany and Marc to discuss his new book with Sarah Burkhard, Iran’s Perilous Pursuit of Nuclear Weapons, based on Iran’s own nuclear archives spirited from a secret warehouse in Tehran. They also talk about the amount of time it would take for Iran to produce a nuclear weapon, how it will be delivered, and the administration’s eagerness to reenter the deal.


David Albright, a physicist, is founder and President of the non-profit Institute for Science and International Security. He is a former weapons inspector and has written numerous assessments on secret nuclear weapons programs throughout the world.
