Kerry accuses Iran deal opponents of 'hysteria'

Why is John Kerry the most buffoonish, the most inept Secretary of State in US history?

1. He has an enemy identification problem. Specifically, he hates Republicans more than the enemies of the republic.

2. He is a baldfaced liar.

3. He is a naive fool who is clueless about protecting American interests.

Please add your own reasons in the comments.

Kerry told an Israeli TV station that the US version of what the agreement entails is reality while ignoring what the Iranians, who dispute most of the major talking points Kerry and President Obama have been using to sell the deal, say about it.

“There’s a lot of hysteria about this deal. People really need to look at the facts, and they need to look at the science of what is behind those facts,” Kerry told Channel 10 News in a rarely granted interview to an Israeli station.

Though Kerry did not mention Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by name, the Israeli leader has repeatedly called the emerging agreement “a bad deal” that allows Iran an “easy path to nuclear weapons.”

“We will not sign a deal that does not close off Iran’s pathways to a bomb and that doesn’t give us the confidence — to all of our experts, in fact to global experts — that we will be able to know what Iran is doing and prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon,” Kerry said.

Kerry also said that the agreement would provide for international inspections of nuclear facilities beyond the deal’s 10- or 15-year expiration date timeframe currently being negotiated.

“President Obama has absolutely pledged they will not get a nuclear weapon,” Kerry said. “We will have inspectors in there every single day. That is not a 10-year deal, 15. That’s forever.”

No, inspectors will not be in there "every single day." That's a lie. And I don't know if he's lying when he says the inspections will be "forever," or just being a naive fool. There's the little matter of the Iranians granting permission for the inspectors to enter their sites. And they have already made clear that some sites that may have dual-use capability - civilian and military - will be off limits.

As problems with the deal become more apparent, Kerry and Obama are ratcheting up the rhetoric against their opponents. No one I've seen is "hysterical" about opposing this deal. It's the Iranians who are gumming up the works by claiming the White House "Fact Sheet" on the deal is full of lies and then re-interpreting the agreement that makes the administration out to be a bunch of liars regarding what's in it.

Kerry and the president continue to pretend that all is well with the negotiations. This is probably due to the fact that every major point of contention between the "Fact Sheet" and the Iranian view of the agreement will be decided in Iran's favor. Obama has already hinted that his solemn promise to keep some sanctions in place for years will be thrown under the bus to accommodate the Iranian position that all sanctions must be lifted immediately. That alone should tell us how desperate this administration is in reaching a final agreement and explains why their rhetoric has become detatched from reality.
