Move over INA

At The Space Review this week, Taylor Dinerman discusses the Iran Nonproliferation Act (INA), "the legislation to leverage the US-Russian relationship inside the International Space Station (ISS) partnership to convince the Russian to stop supporting Iran’s various weapons programs."

Dinerman terms INA "perhaps the best example of ineffective US sanctions" and argues "the best hope for NASA and the Administration on Capitol Hill is that the
Senate’s bill will be passed intact by the House. This would allow NASA to immediately begin working with the Russians on the future Soyuz missions and would give everyone some breathing space to consider what to do next. After the shuttle has resumed assembly flights to the ISS there will be time for Mike Griffin and his superiors in the White House and Congress to work out exactly what they want NASA to do after 2012."
