Letter: Hardly an achievement

Stefan Edlis and I often disagree but are mutually respectful. With respect, I disagree with Stefan’s characterization of the Iran deal as “our president’s extraordinary achievement (“Criticism of Iran deal is political,” July 24, letters, The Aspen Times). Unless, of course, by “achievement” Stefan means an “achievement” in self congratulation.

The comedian Jackie Mason summed it up well. The New York City Health Department can inspect a restaurant kitchen in New York City anywhere anytime without notice. In contrast, the Iranians can stall inspections of their nuclear program almost at will. We are safer from a tainted tuna sandwich than we are from Iranian nukes.

Some “achievement.”
