It really will be a victory for Iran if the Obama administration turns around and says, “See, they’re moderate.”  The whole episode is a tactic reminiscent of North Korea–create a crisis and the back away.  In the rush to celebrate, the White House forgets who orchestrated the crisis in the first place.

And, let’s not forget that Robert Levinson remains missing in Iran.

Michael Rubin is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, senior lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Civil-Military Relations, and a senior editor of the Middle East Quarterly.
