Is the old nuke deal with Iran already dead?

“Has the nuclear deal with Iran already died an ignominious death? The difficulties in reviving it would suggest it truly has. Ever since President Biden stated it was a priority for his administration, it seems it has been anything but. Delays by both the U.S. and Iran have plagued the negotiations. Both have stated that time is running out. The dynamics have changed so dramatically that there may be no compelling reason for either the U.S. or Iran to return now to the negotiating table. Even if they did, would they make any progress? Would it be worth it for either side?” [editor’s note: The only “delay” from the Iranian side has been its insistence that the US meet its obligations under the deal – TLK] (10/13/21)
