Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Senior Fellow David Kay, Ph.D., says new sanctions against Iran approved by the UN Security Council are weak. Although President Obama has praised the Security Council for its decision, Dr. Kay believes that congratulations are not quite warranted. In an interview with The Washington Times, the former IAEA chief nuclear weapons inspector says the sanctions actually represent "a victory for the Iranians."

The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies is pleased to announce that Senior Research Fellow Frank Turner recently volunteered as a judge at a Regional Science and Engineering Fair for Fairfax County high school students. The event was hosted by the Fairfax County Public Schools. During the event, Dr. Turner was able to interact with the student participants and discuss the results of their projects. The Fairfax County Schools expressed their gratitude for Dr. Turner's participation in the fair. The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies is proud of Dr. Turner's contribution and looks forward to future opportunities to contribute to local science and technology programs that enrich the community and help develop the talents of tomorrow's scientists.
Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Senior Fellow Amb. David Smith warns that a new geopolitical dynamic among some emerging nations is complicating US attempts to halt Iran's nuclear ambitions. Writing in the Georgian magazine Tabula before the recent UN Security Council sanctions vote, Amb. Smith noted that a cooperative agreement struck among leaders of Iran, Turkey and Brazil signals a world in which emerging countries "are flexing their muscles and beginning to mold the future," regardless of what Washington thinks. Adds Smith, "Washington appears not to understand that Iran wants nuclear weapons not as dangerous toys but as geopolitical tools to undermine American superpower, a prospect that Russia and China relish."
