The deal that wasn't a deal

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director general Yukiya Amano explained what had up to this point been a mystery: namely, why its recent reports on Iran’s nuclear program have been so vague and contain such little data. As it turns out, under the Iran nuclear deal or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), there are now limitations on what the IAEA is allowed to report. According to Amano, due to new U.N. Security Council and IAEA resolutions, the agency will only monitor and verify Iran’s compliance with its JCPOA commitments and will no longer provide broad reporting on its nuclear program. A December 15, 2015, IAEA Board of Governors resolution directed the organization to cease reporting on Iran’s compliance with its Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty obligations and past Security Council resolutions because the Board of Governors is no longer seized of this matter.
Did the West conceded to Iran’s demand for vague IAEA reports during the nuclear talks in yet another secret side deal that the Obama administration failed to disclose to Congress. Is this more evidence that the nuclear deal with Iran is a fraud. Did U.S. officials give away everything to get this legacy agreement for President Obama that will not stop Iran from pursuing nuclear weapons?   It appears that by preventing the IAEA from publicly disclosing the full details of Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA, the Obama administration found a way to perpetuate the myth that this is a good agreement and keep Republicans from using reports of Iran’s cheating on the deal against Democrats in the 2016 presidential and congressional campaigns.

And a bad deal is better than no deal.  Didn't I read that somewhere here???

  1. John Kerry has to be the biggest ass hole our country has produced in over a century. I cannot imagine how those in our military can get up every morning and not shit the bed. What a f---in mess these charlatans are leaving for future generations to clean up. If they survive at all.
