Hillary Clinton's Big Plan: Give North Korea the Same Deal As Obama Gave Iran

Lovely!

Hopefully we'll retain Ben Rhodes to lie to the public, and Max Fisher, Zack Blumenthal, Laura Rozen and Jeffrey Goldberg to endlessly retransmit and amplify those lies.

One of Hillary Clinton's top priorities as president would be to use sanctions to pressure North Korea to negotiate limits on its nuclear program, according to Clinton's top foreign policy adviser. The strategy would mimic the Obama administration’s approach to Iran.

Jake Sullivan, the head of the Clinton campaign's foreign policy advisory team, was one of two officials who began secret negotiations with Iran in 2012 that eventually resulted in the nuclear agreement that Iran struck last summer with six world powers. He told an audience Monday evening at the Asia Society in New York that Clinton is planning a similar strategy to deal with North Korea’s nuclear program.

...

While she was secretary of state, Clinton actually opposed several of the sanctions that Congress passed to increase pressure on Iran, including the sanctions on Iran's central bank, which are widely credited with crippling Iran's economy. Clinton actively supported United Nations sanctions against Iran at that time. She often takes credit on the campaign trail for building the sanctions regime that eventually brought Iran to the table.

What a wonderful world we live in.
