Ms. Rice could still make history if she got on a plane to Tehran to deliver an offer of a grand bargain.... We have long felt that Mohamed ElBaradei and his United Nations nuclear inspectors were too patient with Iran’s cat-and-mouse games and constant evasions.
Skip to next paragraph. Even their patience is running out. In a report last week, the International Atomic Energy Agency declared that it had reached an impasse over Tehran’s refusal to answer questions about its past nuclear activities. (An official close to the agency told The Times: “We seem to be at a dead end.”) The report also said that Iran had substantially improved its ability to produce nuclear fuel in direct defiance of a Security Council ban.
