A new analysis article from
Leonard Spector, deputy director of the Center for Nonproliferation Studies
(CNS), details how Iran and North Korea procured the materials needed to
develop their nuclear programs. Spector recommends actions to forcefully condemn
state-sponsored smuggling of nuclear goods and set the stage for punishing the
next country that pursues this strategy.
The article includes a detailed interactive story map, tracking
the journey of pressure transducers –equipment necessary for uranium enrichment
that is highly regulated by U.S. export controls – from Massachusetts to Iran’s
Natanz Uranium Enrichment Facility.
