Obama's Iran Deal: Exactly Where They Want Us

Iran Deal: President Obama confirms that he is flexible as Jell-O on getting a nuclear weapons agreement. Meanwhile, a key senator warns that even Iran's negotiators may not know the regime's true intentions.
It should have been clear a very long time ago to all but the most starry-eyed that Iran's approach to the nuclear weapons talks is that it's nothing but a game.
These are not straightforward negotiations, where both sides consist of reasonable people. And if the theory put forth by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker is correct — that even Tehran's negotiators have been kept ignorant of their regime's intentions about building nukes so they can appear to negotiate in good faith — they go beyond even the duplicity of U.S. dealings with the Soviet Union.
Corker told CNN over the weekend that the Iranians who sit across the table from Secretary of State John Kerry in Switzerland may know so little, they "could pass a lie detector test." Corker, R-Tenn., then asked: "If the negotiators don't even know on behalf of Iran all the things Iran has been doing, how are we going to know?"
Corker and his Democrat counterpart on the foreign relations panel, Ben Cardin of Maryland, want Congress to have 52 days to vet the deal-not-a-treaty that's supposed to be finalized before a June 30 deadline. He pointed out that the Ayatollah Khamenei's account of what has been agreed to regarding the removal of sanctions and United Nations inspections of Iranian facilities is completely different from what the Obama administration has claimed.
