Despite all the media propaganda, most observers agree that the Obama administration obviously gave away the store in the Iran deal and got virtually nothing in return: The agreement will do little or nothing to prevent that regime, which is designated as a state-sponsor of terrorism by the US State department, from getting a nuke.
With that in mind, a May 2016 New York Times article even revealed how White House operative Ben Rhodes fed misinformation about the deal to gullible, cheerleading journalists.
“The way in which most Americans have heard the story of the Iran deal presented…was largely manufactured for the purpose for selling the deal,” the Times noted.
Against the backdrop of the Iran deal and various trade agreements, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has joked that Obama is a terrible negotiator except, that is, when he is negotiating with feckless Congressional Republicans.
In another of the John Podesta emails from WikiLeaks, it turns out that even the Hillary Clinton campaign manager in one word agrees that the Iran deal, one of Obama’s signature achievements along with the disastrous Obamacare, was a failure of diplomacy and international security.
From the Independent Journal Review:
Veteran pollster John Anzalone emailed Podesta a link to a 2015 BuzzFeed article, along with the following quote from Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL):
‘This agreement condemns the next generation to cleaning up a nuclear war in the Persian Gulf… This is the greatest agreement since Chamberlain gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler.’
Podesta, who was also an Obama adviser and Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff, agreed: ‘Yup.’
Podesta has not claimed that the email is a fake; he just blamed the Russian government for illegally hacking his email account.
According to the New York Post, the director of Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency has declared that “Iran’s nuclear program remains intact. We have done nothing that could not be undone with the turn of a screw.”
“To hammer in the point further, Iran recently tested a new generation of missiles which, because of their long range and small payload, only make sense if they carry nuclear warheads,” the Post added.
