Negotiations with Iran berated in local editorial

By NANCY DUFF Paducah

EDITOR:

Having recently returned from Iran, I read with interest The Paducah Sun's July 16 editorial, "Predictable, Futility of Iran talks a surprise to one one." The editorial described the Obama administration's negotiating efforts to curtail Iran's nuclear program as naive, embarrassing and a complete failure. The Sun's editor, however, neglected to mention that the designated six-month period for these negotiations had not yet expired, nor did he mention that the possibility of a successful outcome is greater now than during any other time in last 30 years.

One would think that any attempt toward improving relations between Iran and the West would be celebrated rather than reviled as the local editor has done.

The initial six-month negotiation period has now expired and progress toward reducing Iran's nuclear program has been made as noted in an AP article embedded in the back pages of Monday's Paducah Sun. Negotiations between the West and Iran continue through November. Apparently global stakeholders believe efforts made toward a nuclear agreement are worthy even though The Paducah Sun would rather express contempt for the idea.
