Analysis: U.S. has caved to Iran demands 12 times during negotiations for nuke deal

Over the last few months, I've been highlighting the stark contrast between what the administration has been saying the proposed nuclear deal contains and what has actually been negotiated.

Now, Tzvi Khan of the Foreign Policy Initiative has posted a video that shows, in spectacular fashion, how the administration has been lying to the American people since the negotiations began.

Washington Examiner:

An analysis from the Foreign Policy Initiative‘s Tzvi Khan published June 29 laid out the myriad ways the U.S. has fallen short, misled or simply kowtowed on sanctions, uranium enrichment, Iran’s breakout capacity, whether Iran could be a good actor and more.

President Obama claimed in his 2015 State of the Union address to have “halted” Iran’s nuclear program and “reduced” its stockpile, sweeping and inaccurate claims for which he earned three Pinocchios from the Washington Post fact-checker.

On April 2, when Obama touted the framework agreement and “historic understanding” between Iran and world powers, he claimed “Iran has also agreed to the most robust and intrusive inspections and transparency regime ever negotiated for any nuclear program in history.”

Reports emerged in the weeks and months following that the U.S. had backed off this demand and Iran would not be subjected to the “anytime, anywhere” inspections that many experts deem a red line in any negotiations.

Obama also repeatedly said he would not take any option off the table when it came to preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, until an interview he gave with Israeli television May 29 which effectively signaled to Tehran that was no longer something they had to fret.

“A military solution will not fix it, even if the United States participates,” Obama said. “It would temporarily slow down an Iranian nuclear program, but it will not eliminate it.”

There's much more in the video below.  There are times you want to laugh out loud at how the administration have groveled in order to get a deal.  Other times, you want to weep at how they have lied to us about what they are negotiating.

Every member of Congress should see this video and decide for him- or herself if the administration can be trusted to get a "good deal" with Iran.
