Iran's Nuclear Policy Decisions?

Forget Larijani and his latest replacement, Jalili. Ahmadinejad? Nope. The decisions are coming straight from the top...that's right the Poobah Supremo, Ayatollah Khameini is the one with the finger on the button.

A prominent lawmaker said Iran’s nuclear policies are made by the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. Head of Majlis Commission for National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi made the remark a day after the resignation of Iran’s top nuclear negotiator and secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), Ali Larijani, in an interview with IRNA on Sunday.“The SNSC is a body that executes leader’s directives and should have enough authority to implement the leader’s policies,“ he said.The MP reiterated that the leader has the final word on sensitive issues, especially those related to the nuclear debate.
