Does President Obama have the measure of the mullahs? Perhaps not. According to the Israeli media, the Iranian General killed by Israel’s strike on a Hezbollah convoy may have been working to help Hezbollah establish a missile base from which it could fire on Israel from outside Lebanese territory. With Iranian-backed fighters now in possession of Yemen’s presidential palace, one wonders whether the Administration is misreading Iran’s intentions as badly as it misread Russia’s during the reset period.This kind of behavior from Iran sends a strong message to those in Congress who don’t trust the Administration’s approach to the nuclear talks. It suggests that “dealitis” may have taken over the White House—the deal-at-any-price mentality that often overcomes small groups of people intensely involved in complex and important negotiations. Henry Kissinger is only one of many voices pointing to this as a characteristic flaw of American diplomacy, one which our adversaries frequently exploit.But dealitis or no, a flabby response to rampant Iranian provocations and aggression across the region telegraphs the strongest possible message to Tehran that Washington’s current diplomacy does not need to be taken seriously.
