Optimistic Delusions

It's unclear whether our president is being manipulated like a puppet and a ventriloquist's dummy into acting and saying that Iran can be persuaded to abandon its nuclear weapons development program by peaceful means or if he just finds it politically expedient to act and talk as if that is a real possibility.

The Iranians always resume talks and diplomacy whenever action against them appears to be a real possibility, but their program constantly moves forward and the negotiations and diplomatic efforts inevitably collapse. 

Mr. Obama has gone so far as to state that it is unclear whether the Iranians have decided to develop nuclear weapons or whether their efforts are aimed at producing power and other peaceful goals.

One has to be pretty obtuse or delusional to believe that this is why their program is being conducted in many widely dispersed sites deep beneath the earth's surface.
