« Yet Another "Bias Crime" Story Turns Out To Be A Hoax Created By the "Victim" | Main | Don't Say THAT Word, But It Might Just Be Building »

Iran Accuses the Obama Administration of, Get This, Lying About What Their Agreement Says

No. Lie? There's no way Obama would misrepresent a bargain in order to trick the American public into acquiescing to it and thinking he achieved a political breakthrough.

That just doesn't make any damn sense at all.

Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva.

...

The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced.

However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday rejected the White House’s version of the deal as “invalid” and accused Washington of releasing a factually inaccurate primer that misleads the American public.

...

Afkham and officials said that the White House has “modified” key details of the deal and released their own version of the agreement.

The White House "modifying" the details of an agreement and then lying about those terms?

That doesn't sound like the White House I know.



Iran’s right to enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, is fully recognized under the draft released by Tehran.

...

The White House confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon on Monday that the final details of the plan have yet to be worked out, meaning that Iran is not yet beholden to a six month freeze its nuclear activities.

Obama has managed his most important goal, though: Cornering Israel.

U.S. President Barack Obama has had two overarching goals in the Iran crisis. The first was to stop the Iranian regime from gaining possession of a nuclear weapon. The second was to prevent Israel from attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities. This weekend, the president achieved one of these goals. He boxed-in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu so comprehensively that it's unimaginable Israel will strike Iran in the foreseeable future. Netanyahu had his best chance to attack in 2010 and 2011, and he missed it. He came close but was swayed by Obama’s demand that he keep his planes parked. It would be a foolhardy act -- one that could turn Israel into a true pariah state, and bring about the collapse of sanctions and possible war in the Middle East -- if Israel were to attack Iran now, in the middle of negotiations.

Except that it's not wise to corner a country in existential fear for its continued existence.

Israel might not feel as boxed-in as Obama hopes they will feel.

A Foreign Policy writer suggests that Israel might resort to a pre-emptive nuclear strike of its own, to forestall Iran from getting the bomb.

They do seem to contemplate that possibility, and hint at it:

n August, Yuval Steinitz, Israel's minister for international affairs, strategy, and intelligence, claimed that Iran's uranium-enrichment facilities can be "destroyed with brute force," which he described as "a few hours of airstrikes, no more." Yaakov Amidror, who recently stepped down as national security advisor, asserted this month that Israel can "stop the Iranians for a very long time." Asked whether this includes Iran's deeply buried nuclear installations, he responded, "including everything."

Only a nuclear weapon could destroy deeply-buried facilities.

Thanks to Dave at Garfield Ridge for that last link.
