When President Obama spoke about the implemented Iran deal on Sunday, with the exception of “God bless the United States of America,” almost everything the President said was a lie.
Obama said, “Iran is being subjected to the most comprehensive, intrusive inspection regime ever negotiated to monitor a nuclear program. Inspectors will monitor Iran’s key nuclear facilities 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.” But inspectors are not allowed in Key Nuclear facilitates.
For example when the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released its report Saturday saying that Iran has complied with the P5+1 nuclear deal. It would have been astounding if they had announced a different result, after all it was Iran who inspected some of Iran’s nuclear facilities including Parchin.
When air, soil, and dust samples were taken from the Parchin nuclear site there was no one form the IAEA present. It was Iranian nuclear experts who took the collection. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano claims that the collection was done according to the IAEA guidelines, because everything was observed buy the UN nuclear agency on TV monitors….Television? Does Mr. Amano also believe there is really a star ship Enterprise speeding through the Universe? Anything can be shown on a TV feed, without someone there we can never prove what happened or didn’t happen.
In world politics very few secrets stay that way. The side deal originally published by the AP exposed Iranians would get to collect their own samples at Parchin, those samples would have to come from mutually agreed upon areas under overlapping photo and video surveillance, and the number of the samples would be limited
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had long sought access to Parchin which has long been suspected of being the location were Iran was developing it’s detonation systems for nuclear weapons.
In October 2014 Iran admitted to using Parchin to test exploding bridge wires, which are used as nuclear detonators, but they claimed the test explosions were not for weapons development.
Access is needed needs to clarify the nature and scope of Iran’s past nuclear weapons work. What were the possible military dimensions (PMDs) of Iran’s atomic program? They need to establish what the Iranians did and how far they got, which are the prerequisites to setting up a a baseline for an inspection regime against future violations. The Obama administration had promised lawmakers that IAEA inspectors would be able to inspect Parchin and resolve all PMD issues before any final deal was inked. But that didn’t happen; instead they allowed Iran to sign a secret side deal with the IAEA permitting the Iranians to self-inspect the facility rather than grant IAEA inspector robust access.
Even the IAEA report in December when they announced they finally had all the evidence about Iran’s previous nuclear activity relied on unverified information from the terrorist regime. If you read the report this phrase is repeated over and over, “The information available to the Agency…” A nice way of saying we had to take what we got from Iran. An Iranian statement this morning confirmed that the Iranians collected their own samples.
In other words, the inspections were meaningless.
While the president said during his announcement on Sunday Morning that Iran had installed nearly 20,000 centrifuges that can enrich uranium for a nuclear bomb, and “today, Iran has removed two-thirds of those machines, ” he was being accurate but not honest.
The deal allows the rogue nation to continue to run centrifuges most of which will be enriching uranium. But if the Iranians are really running a peaceful program there is no need for them to have centrifuges or enrich uranium. Even John Kerry said at the beginning of negotiations that there was no reason for Iran to enrich and more importantly there was no right for them to enrich.
Under the agreement Iran is allowed to keep 5,060 centrifuges, which according to former deputy director of the CIA is a large enough program to produce bombs but not enough for a power program. On Feb. 18th of this last year, Mike Morell told Charlie Rose (video embedded below):
If you are going to have a nuclear weapons program, 5,000 is pretty much the number you need,” Morell, now a CBS analyst, said on Charlie Rose. “If you have a power program, you need a lot more. By limiting them to a small number of centrifuges, we are limiting them to the number you need for a weapon.”
The president celebrated the release of five Americans from Iran and it’s true that we should all be happy these Americans are coming home.
But lets understand what we paid. The deal announced Saturday returns four Americans in exchange for the release of seven Iranians (a fifth American was released supposedly unrelated to to the prisoner exchange).
The seven Iranian who were released were either sentenced in or awaiting trial in the United States court system, and as the president said they were not associated with terrorism. What they were sentenced or arrested for was helping Iran secure what it needed for nuclear weapons. International arrest warrants for other Iranians accused of the same crime were dropped. The president called it a humanitarian gesture which is phony political speak for “we released them in exchange for our hostages.” We also announced that American taxpayers were giving Iran a $1.7 billion dollar check covering a $400 million debt and $1.3 billion in interest, but the timing being announced with the hostage exchange makes it sound more like a ransom.
In the end Iran released our hostages in exchange for Obama being able to claim Iran’s nuke program was neutralized, 7 criminals, a lifting of sanctions and anywhere between $100 and $150 billion dollars, and being able to sell its oil on the world market.
The bottom line is Iran got everything, and the U.S. basically taught terrorists around the world that the way to get their terrorists out of jail is to kidnap some Americans.
Once again our president has been played for a fool.
