Why Can’t Obama Treat Iran as He Treats Republicans?(Because he is a Divider…)

Query: If President Obama’s nuke deal with Iran is so wonderful, why do the major parties in Israel oppose it? Why was Obama so excited about making a deal that, based on his previous positions, he would have opposed earlier?


This agreement is baffling on multiple grounds, even for Obama. What is the urgency for the United States to enter into such a lopsided deal with a rogue nation that doesn’t have a fraction of our negotiating leverage? Why can’t Obama deal with Iran’s leaders the way he deals with Republicans? Is he trying to validate conspiracy theorists convinced that he’s the Manchurian candidate?

Have you ever noticed that there is an inverse relationship between the wisdom of an Obama policy and his defensiveness concerning it? The media are abuzz over the alleged disrespect CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett showed Obama during a news conference. But Garrett wasn’t the only person on whom Obama unloaded. He lashed out at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and members of Congress who oppose the deal.

Obama dared his critics to present a better alternative and, as usual, implied their opposition is not based on the facts but a matter of political posturing and pressure from lobbyists. “I am not betting on the Republican Party rallying behind this agreement,” he said. I pray he’s right about that.

What about Obama’s arrogant dismissal of his critics and claiming this is the best deal we could have made?

First, this assumes that a terrible deal is better than no deal at all, which is highly debatable.

Beyond that, let’s look at some of the problems with this agreement.

–It is not clear whether it will allow the International Atomic Energy Agency sufficient access to Parchin, the military site where Iran is believed to have carried out high-explosives work of a sort that could be used to detonate a nuclear bomb. Iran has consistently denied the IAEA access to the site. Experts say we won’t be able to properly assess Iran’s activities without comprehensive access to key scientists, sites and documentation. The Obama administration formerly made such access a condition to the deal, but no longer. Why not? And if Iran has nothing to hide, why would it play games and deny access to the IAEA?

–Obama’s team has made numerous concessions that will most likely impede the long-term ability of the IAEA to police the agreement. For instance, Iran could appeal an IAEA request to visit a questionable site, and a decision would take some 24 days, during which Iran could remove material and evidence of its activities in violation of the agreement. Compounding the problem is that the agreement gives the decisive vote on Iran’s compliance to the European Union, sort of like the way Justice Anthony Kennedy is often the key player in major Supreme Court decisions.

–The administration has had to backpedal from its initial claim that it would never approve of a deal unless it included “anytime/anywhere” inspections of Iranian military and nuclear sites. Now administration officials insist they never imposed such a condition, though a video recording exposes their earlier statements.

–In 2013, Obama said Iran doesn’t need to have an underground fortified facility, a heavy-water reactor or advanced centrifuges for its peaceful nuclear energy program, but this deal permits the country to have all of these. Just as Obama rewards immigrants who came here illegally for violating our laws, he is rewarding Iran for building these facilities in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty……..MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
