A Politico investigation published Monday reveals the true, extensive damage of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, even as the administration insisted they had a good deal.
A shocking new report, published Monday in Politico, sheds light on the disastrous legacy of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, just as the president steps back into the spotlight after months of relative silence.
The report, written by Josh Meyer, focuses on two broad, damaging effects of negotiations with Iran on the nuclear deal, and the deal itself:
1) Some of the Iranians who President Obama freed from prison “pos[ed] threats to national security,” contrary to Obama’s own assertions. The Justice Department also “dropped charges and international arrest warrants against 14 other men, all of them fugitives,” which was not previously disclosed by the Obama administration.
2) The Obama administration undermined American efforts to stop Iranian nuclear proliferation through the National Counterproliferation Initiative. This meant, one nuclear expert told Politico, that Obama gave his “blessing to Iran’s continuing defiance of international laws.“
Responding to Republican attacks on the Iran deal in July 2015, President Obama said his deal is “the most definitive path by which Iran will not get a nuclear weapon.” Secretary of State John Kerry said in July 2015 that failure of the Iran deal would be the U.S. “walking away from every one of the restrictions that we have achieved.”
The facts in Meyer’s report suggest President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and other administration officials were either wrong in their insistence that the deal made American safer or they misled the American people.
