According to the Associated Press, a side deal was made between Iran and the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency allowing Iran to use its own inspectors to inspect a location accused of building nuclear arms. It is usually the U.N. who inspects such sites, so why not this site?
“International inspections should be done by international inspectors,” stated Ed Royce, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman. “Period.”
It was a document seen by AP that brought this issue to light and that has the Republican lawmakers angered. Already very critical of Obama’s Iran Deal because it is basically built recklessly on trust alone with the Iranians, the GOP finds this new development imprudent.
It was the Obama Administration who insisted it would depend on reliable scrutiny over the Iranian sites in question. Not only the GOP but many of us want to know why, then, are the Iranians inspecting their own sites?
House Speaker John Boehner stated, “President Obama boasts his deal includes ‘unprecedented verification.’ He claims it’s not built on trust. But the administration’s briefings on these side deals have been totally insufficient—and it still isn’t clear whether anyone at the White House has seen the final documents.”
“Worse,” according to ESHRAF, “Obama didn’t even reveal the existence of these secret side deals to Congress when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill. The agreements were uncovered, completely by chance, by two members of Congress — Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) — who were in Vienna meeting with the U.N.-related agency.”
It was President Obama who signed into law The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act. This law unequivocally states that all materials and ‘annexes’ associated with the Iran Deal must be transmitted by the president to Congress. Well, it seems that the president has broken the law, one in which he wrote.
All of this aside, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is not sure what the disclosure has to do with the Iran Deal because, according to her, the disclosure relates to past military efforts and not any nuclear efforts moving ahead.
Pelosi stated, “I truly believe in this agreement.” If there were a vote today “the president’s veto would be sustained. But I feel very confident about it…We will sustain the veto.”
Before voting on the Iran deal Congress should be adamant about seeing the side deals. How many of us would buy a piece of land site unseen and just take the sellers word for it that the land was fertile, especially when that seller has a bit of a track-record for embellishments?
It will take a two-thirds vote in both houses to override the president’s veto, 45 House Democrats and 13 Senate Democrats.
Pompeo stated, “My mission in the next 45 days is to convince 45 House Democrats to override the veto. It’s a long climb, but this is important.”
Iran is getting ready to come into $150 billion dollars in sanctions relief. These relief moneys are based on negotiated agreements between Iran and IAEA that not one U.S. representative has viewed.
Is this wise, Mr. President? You may very well be putting our national security at great risk. “We need to see these documents in order to evaluate whether verification is ample to make such a big concession to the Iranians,” Pompeo said.
“No member of Congress should be asked to vote on an agreement of this historic importance absent knowing what the terms of the verification process are.”
For over 6 months the US has been playing tag with ISIS and its allies.……and all the reports I see states that it will be a long, long war……I know “doom and gloom”….but what else could be be when there is NO recognizable plan for dealing for ISIS other bomb the crap out of them
Really? Has anyone heard a bright optimistic assessment of this conflict?
How about a few of those “in the know”?
U.S. counterterrorism officials and experts, never known for their sunny dispositions, have entered a period of particular gloom.
In congressional testimony recently, Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. went beyond the usual litany of threats to say that terrorism trend lines were worse “than at any other point in history.”
Maj. Gen. Michael Nagata, commander of U.S. Special Operations forces in the Middle East, told participants on a counterterrorism strategy call that he regarded the Islamic State as a greater menace than al-Qaeda ever was.
Speaking at a New York police terrorism conference, Michael Morell, former deputy director of the CIA, said he had come to doubt that he would live to see the end of al-Qaeda and its spawn. “This is long term,” he said. “My children’s generation and my grandchildren’s generation will still be fighting this fight.”
Yep all that gives me an extreme feeling of confidence (that is called SARCASM)….
Is anyone looking beyond Iraq and Syria?
Since the consensus by many military leaders predict a long trudge against extremism… if true….where will we be in 10 years? Who or what land will US troops be forced to deploy?
Libya is kicking becoming a failed state….even though we have successfully installed a CIA operative as the military leader….extremism is on the rise as well as ISIS affiliates. The atrocities have begun.
If not Libya how about Yemen? Yemen has always been a hot bed of AQ….and now ISIS is gaining a foothold. The recent coup by Houthis has set the country into a downward spiral…..the economy is in the crapper and violence is becoming a daily occurrence. Will US troops be asked to become the referee in this situation? If so, that will take troops and that will increase the chances of violence and death…..which in return will heat the situation up to a boil.
The one that few are talking about is Lebanon…….ISIS has made rumblings toward Lebanon…..the political situation is delicate and is always on the verge of collapse…..this will empower ISIS as soon as they decide that it would be in their favor to start work on Lebanon.
This one question needs answering and soon.…..How far are you willing to go, Mr. President?
Following on sharply behind Vladimir Putin’s visit to China, and the signing today of that momentous gas agreement, is President Obama.
With all of his flag waving days a thing of the past and his influence at home fading, he is looking abroad to China. The next three days of this abroad trip, will test his ability to play a commanding global role during his final two years in office.
Once Obama was treated like a superstar on the world stage.
But the president will arrive in Beijing on Monday, under far different conditions, with his most powerful days behind him. No longer is America in the commanding lead for world trade, but they are holding onto the coat tails of China.
This is much more of a cap in hand visit, than a state one, though the world is watching and he needs a miracle, to pull the next two years of his presidency into line.
