Obama’s legacy will be his lack of transparency, as he is hiding key aspects of the Iranian Nuclear deal from Congress and the American people. Even though Obama has been trying to sell this deal to the American people on The Daily Show and in fund raisers nobody is buying it. Like another infamous Obama boondoggle, Congress will have to pass this monstrosity if the American people want to see what is in it. In a statement released by Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan): “The Obama administration has failed to make public separate side deals that have been struck for the ‘inspection’ of one of the most important nuclear sites—the Parchin military complex.” (1) Congress and the American people are being suckered again. In an attempt to bypass Congress Obama offered the Deal for UN approval.
Under the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been in separate negotiations with Iran about the inspection of the Parchin military complex. The complex is long-suspected of being used to research long-range ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. One of the sensitive sites discussed in the original deal, now it will be off limits or moved to another remote location.
In the second side deal the Iranians won’t have to admit how far along they are along in developing a nuclear weapon. No one will be allowed to know, not even IAEA. Iran is not required to allow IAEA to inspect its facilities and may already have a working bomb. Hell they can test it in North Korea and the diplomats will be clueless! The checks and balances of Obama’s deal are nonexistent. In short “Iran won.” Of course Obama has celebrated the brilliance of the agreement as he depends on the ignorance of John Kerry (5) and Democrat voters. As a bonus, Hanoi John volunteered the U.S. to protect Iran’s nuclear ambition from Sabotage! (4) Must be the pain pills.
The Obama Administration refused to make this public until White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice took time off from watching YouTube videos and told White House Stenographers in the media that the Iran agreement is a “strong deal” and the administration has provided Congress with “all documents that have been shared with us by the IAEA.” They will not be made public, meaning they will undoubtedly be on WikiLeaks by the end of the month. Sen. Cotton told the media: “That we are only now discovering that parts of this dangerous agreement are being kept secret begs the question of what other elements may also be secret and entirely free from public scrutiny.”
To add insult to injury the head negotiator for Iran, Abbas Araghchi, is bragging “that that the Islamic Republic will continue to import and export arms freely across the globe without restriction.” (3) He insists during the negotiations that Iran will be able to “purchase and ship military hardware at any time and from any place, according to the comments made on state-controlled television.” The Obama Administration surrendered that point, saying Iran needs to import and modernize weapons for its own national security. If only the United States had a few politicians who were concerned with America’s national security! As for the State Department, it’s no secret they have no interest in protecting this nation or its citizens.
Withholding secrets that may affect the world’s security is criminal. By failing to disclose these secret side deals, the Obama administration is asking Congress and the American people to trust, but not verify. A known supporter of terrorism cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons. Now the rouge Islamic republic, with the help of incompetent fools, has started a Middle East arms race. No matter who wins, innocent people will die. This is one time our enemies (Russia and Chine) just might save us from our own stupidity.
