Gambling Going On Upstairs

Iran has undeclared nuclear sites. Recall the hope and change:

To listen to the Obama administration, you would think the JCPOA leaves no stone unturned. The accord provides “the most comprehensive and intrusive inspection and verification regime ever negotiated,” President Obama claimed. The JCPOA “is not built on trust,” he contended. “It is built on verification.”

Secretary of State John Kerry insisted that Washington already knew the full extent of Iran’s past and present nuclear weaponization activities. “We know what they did,” he declared. “We have no doubt. We have absolute knowledge with respect to the certain military activities they were engaged in.”

And people complain about Trump's lies? I'll take false statements on crowd size any day.

Verification of the Iran nuclear deal (the JCPOA) was always a sham. It was obvious from the start just by reading the awful Iran deal--without even going into the secret side deals with the IAEA that made inspections way too friendly to Iran's interests.

And Kerry was a blithering idiot to make his claim. He turned around the observation that a diplomat is an honorable man sent to lie for his country. Kerry was a dishonorable man sent to lie to his own country on behalf of an enemy.

The outline of the deal was always clear to me long before it was made and proved me right:

The Iranians will pretend not to have a nuclear weapons program; and we will pretend to believe them.

Are we clear now that Iran wants nukes?
