Nor will his fellow Egyptians be much intrigued by the details of his battles against nuclear proliferators. At the moment, the protestors have other priorities. On the other hand, foreign policy leaders and wonks everywhere will find plenty in this memoir to stir debates about the most vital task for global survival — the need to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, especially to rogue states and terrorists. For decades he was an intimate participant in dramatic nuclear proliferation confrontations that dominated headlines.

He served as a senior official at the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations nuclear watchdog and inspection arm, for 13 years before rising to its director-generalship in He resigned in after completing his third term and announced his interest in running against President Hosni Mubarak in the election scheduled for this year.

In , he and the agency were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their nonproliferation endeavors. The Iraq story is well known. The agency conducted inspections at sites in Iraq from November until March and found no violations and no nuclear weapons. There can be no exaggerating the negative effects of this experience on world opinion toward the United States and upon ElBaradei himself as I.

At the same time, ElBaradei decried American counterproliferation efforts as warmongering. These campaigns provided the three themes of his memoir: the need to strengthen the mandate and standing of the I. For one, its inspections are generally restricted to Non-Proliferation Treaty members and only to those sites declared by those members.

Extending this limited mandate to other sites requires a strong push from the United Nations Security Council. Of course, ElBaradei wants to buttress inspection authority and capabilities. He is particularly angry at Washington for not disclosing its intelligence that Syria was building a nuclear facility, and then for doing nothing to stop Israel from bombing that facility in This is all sensible but probably not attainable.

While the United Nations does a number of things quite well, it is not very adept or courageous when it comes to sensitive political matters and national prerogatives. Beyond this, ElBaradei insistently describes the United States and other great powers as more the problem than the solution.

His credo is diplomacy above all else, for however long it takes and whatever the risk that nuclear weapons will be built in the meantime. He exhibits more sympathy for non-Western proliferators and their needs than for the major powers and their security and political concerns.

At times, his narrative comes close to condoning the motives of states that seek nuclear weapons. It will be many moons and unerringly effective inspections before leaders in Washington and Moscow contemplate such a course. Surely ElBaradei knows this. Checking proliferation will require more innovative and tighter cooperation between the agency ElBaradei loves and the United States, of which he no longer seems especially fond. Home Page World U.
