Mark Lincoln's long standing argument is that both Israel and the United States should "trust" the IAEA to combat the spread of proliferation. That the IAEA is the only organization who can legitimately confront states attempting to go forward with illicit nuclear plans. And yet, we have not one, not two or three, but four states in the region who were all found to have gone down this path regardless of their treaty obligations. Toss in India and Pakistan and the IAEA is nil for six. But woe betide Israel if it decides to take matters into its own hands. Rather, it should trust this organization. Respect and responsibility go hand in hand with credibility. To date, the IAEA has fallen far short of that goal.
