UNCONSUMMATED “DEAL” DOES NOT STOP URANIUM ENRICHMENT
by Sharon Rondeau
(Dec. 4, 2013) — On Sunday, November 24, putative Secretary of State John Kerry announced in Geneva, Switzerland that an agreement had been reached among six world powers and the Republic of Iran in which Iran had agreed to scale back its nuclear program.
Since that time, reports have surfaced that the “deal” is not operational and that the State Department misled reporters and the public as to when negotiations with Iran might have been initiated. On Wednesday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that a White House-issued statement read, in part, “If we can reach an understanding on all of these strict constraints, then we could have an arrangement that includes a very modest amount of enrichment that is tied to Iran’s practical needs and that eliminates any near-term breakout capability.”
The Obama regime opposes new sanctions proposed by members of Congress in the event that the so-called “preliminary agreement” fails, stating that a show of “bad faith” could undermine the progress made with Iran to date.
In late September, Obama pledged that Israel would be included in negotiations with Iran, but the hypothetical accord reached last month was reported to have excluded Israel, which called the agreement “a historic mistake.”
Iran is working with Russia to build two new atomic power plants and reportedly plans to construct additional nuclear power plants “along the coasts of the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea as well as the Central parts of Iran.”
Just before the 2012 election, The New York Times reported that Iran and the U.S. had “agreed in principle” to direct negotiations on Iran’s nuclear capabilities, which the Obama regime at the time had denied. On Election Day, it was reported by an Israeli publication that White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett had been engaged in “secret talks” in Bahrain over a several-month period.
Jarrett was born in Iran to two U.S.-citizen parents but is reportedly sympathetic to “communists.” Obama himself openly desired a single-payer health care system in 200 similar to European socialist and communist nations. Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid has described Obamacare, which has been plagued with website glitches and security breaches, as “absolutely a step toward a single-payer system.”
Jarrett’s father-in-law was Vernon Jarrett, a well-known communist writer in Chicago, where Valerie befriended Michelle Obama in the 1980s.
One source claimed that Iran’s nuclear program had “ended” in 2003 and that The New York Times report was “propaganda.”
In September of this year, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Abbas Araqchi, had said that a cessation of uranium enrichment was “out of the question.” Two weeks before the “deal” was reached in Geneva, Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, had reiterated that position. On the same day, TIME Magazine reported that “in an important shift, the U.S. and others no longer appear to demand a complete halt to enrichment and are concentrating on curbing the highest-level production, currently at 20 percent. Such material is needed for Iran’s lone research reactor, which makes isotopes for medical treatments, but is only just several steps away from warhead level at more than 90 percent enrichment.
Iran and the U.S. have offered different versions of the “agreement,” which, because the final text has not been issued, indicates that nothing has been signed.
The World Tribune reported that the latest agreement reached in Geneva was crafted over a nine-month period and that it “violated United Nations Security Council resolutions” by lifting sanctions against the Iranian regime.
Saudi Arabia and Israel decried the recent agreement as weak because it does not require Iran to cease uranium enrichment completely. Iran’s nuclear capability has reportedly been developed over several decades, and diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Iran halted in 1979 after 52 U.S. diplomats were taken captive at the embassy by students and held for 444 days reportedly to protest the “American interference” in Iran.
The hostages were never compensated for their suffering by either the Iranian or U.S. government. They were released the day on which President Ronald Reagan took office, January 21, 1981.
Writing for Bloomberg, columnist Jeffrey Goldberg said on Tuesday that although Kerry announced a consummated agreement among the nations from Geneva, “nothing was actually signed.”
Goldberg also reported that the Obama regime may have conceded to Iran the “right to enrich” uranium in the future. Experts have said that Iran is “on the verge of producing a bomb.”
On Monday, after Fox News reporter James Rosen questioned State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki on when U.S. and Iranian “talks” began, Psaki invoked the need for “privacy” within her department after Rosen accused State of “lying.”
The Obama regime pledged to function with “an unprecedented level of openness in government” at the beginning of Obama’s first term but has been riddled with scandals, corruption, dishonesty, and a refusal to uphold federal law. On Tuesday, an hours-long hearing on presidential powers and overreach was held in front of the House Judiciary Committee, during which remedies for an abusive executive branch of government were raised, leading to the mention of presidential impeachment.
The House of Representatives has already drafted Articles of Impeachment against putative Attorney General Eric Holder, who has withheld documents relating to the Fast & Furious gunrunning operation of 2009-2010 and for which Obama claimed executive privilege.
In 1973, President Richard M. Nixon attempted to invoke executive privilege over some of the Watergate recordings, but the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the tapes should be turned over to the House Judiciary Committee, which had convened hearings.
During the “negotiations” with Iran, the subject of the imprisoned U.S. citizen and Christian pastor, Saeed Abedini, reportedly was not raised. On Wednesday, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) reported that Abedini has been robbed at knifepoint in the brutal prison to which he was recently moved and that his health is rapidly deteriorating.
The Obama regime has been hostile to Christians, particularly in the military, and labeled them “potential domestic terrorists,” “right-wing extremists” and “domestic hate groups” in propaganda masquerading as training materials.
Obama’s involvement in the Middle East during his first term has yielded chaos in Libya; the installation of a member of The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who was overthrown within a year; the murder of four Americans and severe injury of several more on September 11, 2012 at a U.S. outpost in Benghazi; the anger of many Americans after Obama bowed to the Saudi king; the anger of the Saudis on the Iran “deal” from their belief that Obama has been “hoodwinked” by Iran.
Obama has not been known to tell the truth. The image posted on the White House website has been declared a “computer-generated forgery” by a law enforcement investigation which has reportedly discovered new information as a corollary to its original probe of the birth certificate image.
While The Washington Post and The New York Times reported extensively on the Watergate investigation, they have not published a word about the investigation into Obama’s fraudulent documentation. All major news outlets have banned the mention of Obama’s questionable life story, including his birthplace, which may affect his constitutional eligibility to serve as president.
After the health care law was passed, Obama told Americans that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” which has been exposed as a lie. As many as 5,000,000 people have been notified that their health plans have been canceled as a result of the implementation of the law, including those with serious illnesses requiring regular treatment.
The regime has refused to explain why the Americans in Benghazi were not protected and the military not allowed to mount a rescue attempt. First-hand accounts from military team members from that night have contradicted the testimony of State Department former charge d’affaires Gregory Hicks in May, who told Congress that a “stand-down” order was given to a rapid response team which could have arrived in Benghazi before the conflagration of the outpost was complete and lives taken.
Valerie Jarrett is rumored to have issued the stand-down order.
Obama has promoted Islamics within the U.S. government with ties to radical organizations and publicly recognized the accomplishments of such groups in Arabic.
At least two meetings have taken place among the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Jarrett and Obama to “discuss immigration reform.”
In July 2012, Jarrett reportedly “took part in a White House roundtable with Iranian-American organizations, including the National Iranian American Council (NIAC),” which “supports a policy of persistent strategic engagement with Iran that includes human rights as a core issue and addresses American and regional security concerns.” Rather than military intervention, it advocates “patient, forward-thinking diplomacy” between the U.S. and Iran.
Approximately one month ago, it was reported that “Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build an atomic weapon within two weeks.”
