“It could also turn out to be successful, to be the beginning of a negotiated resolution,” Dershowitz told Newsmax. “But I think the likelihood of it being the former is considerably greater.”

Dershowitz believes the Obama Administration has a 10-percent chance of changing the Iranian leadership’s attitude on its nuclear program.

“But when you weigh that against the 30 or 40 percent chance that they’re dead wrong—nuclear bomb wrong—then it’s a very bad assessment of risk and benefits,” he said.

    Once again, Obama’s defender voices his opinion. Obama spoke to Dershowitz face to face, and looked him in the eye. Thus the love affair between these two continues, ad nauseum.

    • You’re correct. Dershowitz can’t seem to make up his mind what’s more important to him; invitations to the White House and dinners with his ‘Leftish’ Upper West Side friends-or the survival of the Jewish State. It’s a tough call isn’t it, Alan?
