Today, Obama announced the next step in his ‘Learn as You Go’ Foreign Policy on Iran.
“First, Iran must demonstrate its commitment to transparency. Earlier this month, we presented clear evidence that Iran has been building a covert nuclear facility in Qom. Since Iran has now agreed to cooperate fully and immediately with the International Atomic Energy Agency, it must grant unfettered access to IAEA inspectors within two weeks. I’ve been in close touch with the head of the IAEA, Mohammed ElBaradei, who will be traveling to Tehran in the days ahead. He has my full support, and the Iranian government must grant the IAEA full access to the site in Qom”.
President Obama: on Iran – October 1, 2009
Remember the last time a President insisted on a world leader allowing inspectors into their country?
“Saddam Hussein must prove to the world that he is not developing biological, chemical or nuclear weapons. He needs to let inspectors back into his country to show us he is not developing weapons of mass destruction.”

Is anyone else seeing Obama heading into WMD II? And may well we say, Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before?
