Lawmakers Seek to Re-Open ‘Flawed’ Iran Nuclear Weapons Investigation

U.S. lawmakers and foreign policy insiders are calling on the international community to re-open its “flawed” investigation into Iran’s past nuclear weapons research, according to conversations with multiple sources who say the extent of Iran’s past nuclear work is likely much larger than previously believed.

The calls to reinvestigate Iran’s nuclear work come on the heels of revelations by anonymous U.S. officials who said the Obama administration held onto evidence showing the Islamic Republic performed nuclear weapons research—a finding that contradicts findings by international monitors and longstanding claims by Iranian officials.
