We all knew this was inevitable. No matter how many deadlines came and went. No matter how many extensions were granted. No matter the demonstrations in Iranian cities chanting, "Death to America" and "Death to Israel". We knew that a deal would be reached.
One almost wants to throw up listening to Obama tell us how they have ensured that Iran will never get a nuclear weapon-now or ever. He talked about verification, which, after you read the details on the supposed inspections, makes you laugh.
Below from the Washington Post is the text of Obama's announcement.
"Today, because America negotiated from a position of strength and principle, we have stopped the spread of nuclear weapons in this region."
"Inspectors will have 24/7 access to Iran’s key nuclear facilities."
Right. That's what MSNBC's blowhard Ed Schultz echoed today on The Ed Show-just to add a touch
of comedy to this sad chapter in American history."Unfettered and daily" access , he called it.
Well, not quite. Section Q of the deal talks about that, as National Review discloses.
So once we find or suspect that Iran is cheating-heavens to Betsy- we ask for access, they object, and the whole process goes back into action. No doubt, John Kerry will fly back to Europe to meet the Iranian foreign minister and negotiations begin anew with more deadlines and more delays ad finitum.
And don't forget that $100 billion in unfrozen assets Iran will shortly collect. That will finance a lot of terror operations around the world.
And the four Americans being held in Iran on trumped-up charges of espionage? Well, you never know about secret protocols, but according to Kerry himself, they were not even part of the negotiations. I hope I am wrong, but I suspect he was telling the truth.
