Secret Deals and a Bad Comparison

There are two secretive side-deals to the nuclear agreement with Iran that the Obama administration won’t be sharing with the U.S. people, our Congress or other nations.

One of them concerns inspection of Parchin Military Base, where Iran’s conducted several testing related to nuclear-warhead development. The other concerns how the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran will resolve issues on the regimes possible military use of nuclear materiels.

Neither of he the deal will be overseen by any organization other than Iran and the IAEA. It also means the two deals won’t be disclosed to Congress despite the requirements of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, requiring the Obama administration to provide Congress with all documents, including all “annexes, appendices, codicils, side agreements, implementing materials, documents, and guidance, technical, or other understandings and any related agreements, whether entered into or implemented prior to the agreement or to be entered into or implemented in the future.”

It also means neither the Obama administration nor Congress will have a way of knowing whether Iran is complying with these ‘hidden’ agreements.

In July, Obama told the New York Time’s “You know, I have a lot of differences with Ronald Reagan, but where I completely admire him was his recognition that if you were able to verify an agreements that you would negotiate with the evil empire that was hellbent on our destruction and was a far greater existential threat to us than Iran will ever be.”

Obama’s nuclear treaty with Iran doesn’t even come close to being verifiable and worse, he didn’t even try to win the release of four Americans being held prisoner in Iran. However he did release a top Iranian scientist, arrested in California while attempting to acquire equipment for Iran’s military-nuclear programs, as part of the same flawed deal.

History confirms that Obama is no Ronald Reagan as trumpeted by the headline of the New York Times on January 21, 1981, “Reagan Takes Oath As 40th President; Promises an ‘Era of Renewal,’ followed by “Minutes Later, 52 Hostages in Iran Fly to Freedom after 444 Day Ordeal.”
