This weekend the Obama administration will pretend it can separate the IRGC-controlled nuclear program from IRGC-backed terrorism, as if one has nothing to do with the other. But the same organization that holds the keys to Iran’s nuclear program sponsors terrorism around the globe.

Nothing about the IRGC suggests it is truly willing to give up its crown jewel—a nuclear weapons program it has spent considerable resources to develop. Nor will the IRGC stop sponsoring terrorism any time soon.
