Iran wants to re-enter talks on its nuclear program while enriching uranium to higher levels, says Clarion Intelligence Network Director and Shillman Fellow Ryan Mauro.

Mauro’s analysis comes as the USS Abraham Lincoln, accompanied by B-52 strategic bombers, arrives in the Gulf region sending a clear message to the Iranian regime.

Mauro notes the possibility that Tehran may use al-Qaeda operatives currently on Iranian soil to carry out attacks against American interests. He reacts to the news that the European Union rejected Iran’s 60-day ultimatum to undermine sanctions and raises the question of whether the U.S. is adequately preparing for the potential collapse of the Iranian regime.
