Iranian Nukes: President Obama's deal with Iran was supposed to keep that nation's mullahs from creating a nuclear weapon with which it could intimidate and dominate the Mideast and much of Europe. Instead, it actually makes it more possible -- and in shorter time.
The Associated Press obtained a copy of a secret side deal that, in the words of the normally circumspect AP, advances "Tehran's ability to build a bomb even before the end of the pact." The accord as agreed to by the U.S. and five other nations was supposed to last 15 years. Or so we were told. Turns out, that's not the case.
This is the latest of the shocking lies to emerge from our White House about the Iran deal. After concluding the deal last July, President Obama basically told Congress to shut up on their criticism of the deal and suggested they were lying.
"I challenge those who are objecting to this agreement ... to explain specifically where it is that they think this agreement does not prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and why they're right and people like (Energy Secretary) Ernie Moniz, who is an MIT nuclear physicist and an expert in these issues, is wrong," said Obama a year ago after signing the deal. He subsequently referred to those who dared to oppose the deal as "crazies."
That's statesmanship for you.
In point of fact, however, the deal as signed all but guarantees that Iran will someday get a nuclear weapon with which to terrorize its neighbors. What the AP document does is move up the time under which Iran can make a nuclear weapon. So we'll all be at risk sooner than we think.Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE.
