How Iran Got The Bomb

The Twisted Path to a Nuclear Weapon

by Jeremy Bernstein

The critical unknown in the Middle East equation is the likelihood of Iran developing a nuclear weapon. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continues to insist that Iran is pursuing only the peaceful uses of nuclear energy; other countries in the region, and the United States, are not so sure. The International Atomic Energy Agency’s inspections of Iranian facilities have proved inconclusive, perhaps because Iran is concealing some research installations. But part of the problem lies in understanding what is needed to make a nuclear weapon and whether Iran has the necessary ingredients. In this acute analysis, written in clear language for the intelligent layperson, the physicist Jeremy Bernstein traces the circuitous route by which Iran secured the expertise it needed to develop a nuclear capability. He then assesses the current status of Iran’s nuclear program and whether it appears to be aimed at peaceful use or weapons production. The time of decision, he concludes, is fast approaching.
