DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis May 24, 2014

The optimism disseminated this week by all parties to the nuclear talks with Iran masked the truth, that diplomacy is stalled with no way to meet its July deadline. debkafile: US President Barack Obama has quietly decided to shift the deadline to Jan. 2015. But this leaves Iran off the hook of its November commitment for a six-month suspension of its extra-fast centrifuges - and free to raise its enriched uranium stockpile.
