In case you weren’t watching Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s speech to the U.S. General Assembly, you missed her launch a bombshell claim!
According to Kirchner, Gary Samore who was serving as White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction, visited Argentina to see if they’d be willing to send nuclear fuel to Iran to help run their Tehran reactor.
So why would the U.S. be willingly allow Iran to receive nuclear fuel? The idea was that Iran would send their low enriched uranium to Russia, who would further enrich it and then send it to a 4th party who would turn it into nuclear reactor fuel.
The goal was to stop Iran from creating weapons grade uranium. But, would it have worked? Sound off in the comments below!
From the Blaze:
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner claimed during the U.N. General Assembly on Monday that a former Obama administration official attempted to convince Argentina to “provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel.” The claim was seemingly overshadowed by President Barack Obama’s high-stakes dealings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
