Obama and His Administration Have Become Iran’s Attorney

Obama and His Administration Have Become Iran’s Attorney

Reuters is reporting about the Obama administration taking the Iranian side regarding a long list of violations to the interim Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) agreed to at the beginning of April as well as the United Nations Security Council resolutions by seeking to procure illicit nuclear infrastructure and refusing to cooperate with the IAEA. Despite evidence to the contrary, the Obama administration is denying they ever happened, or labeling them as inconsequential.

For a month now the U.S. State Department has been defending Iran from suggestions that it was on the verge of violating a requirement to reduce its low-enriched uranium stockpile under a 2013 interim nuclear with major powers… It was not the first time Washington has defended Iran. After the IAEA reported that Iran had begun feeding uranium into a single advanced centrifuge last year, which would be a violation of the 2013 deal, U.S. negotiators said it was apparently a mistake on Iran’s part… A U.N. panel of experts that monitors compliance with Security Council sanctions has repeatedly reported that Iran is suspected of buying equipment linked to the activities it is now negotiating to suspend. But in its annual report in April, the panel said it had received no formal notifications from U.N. member states of Iranian breaches of sanctions, and suggested this may be because countries were trying to avoid damaging nuclear talks.

That most recent and perhaps most serious example of Iran’s cheating was the oxidation violation which was confirmed last week (and still denied by the administration.) The Iranians were obligated by the JPOA to turn all of their excess uranium gas (UF6), anything over 7,650kg, into dioxide powder (UO2) also known as yellowcake. But the Iranians converted it to a different type of oxide easily converted back to usable uranium.

But there are different kinds of uranium oxide and this is an area where precision is very important. Therefore the Congressional Research Service reports about the JPOA – which were also posted on the state department’s website – noted that:

“Iran is also to, in effect, freeze its production of enriched uranium hexafluoride containing up to 5% uranium-235 by converting the material to uranium dioxide.”

Once it became news that the Iranians cheated on the conversion, the Obama administration went to work retroactively rewriting the deal on Iran’s behalf.

With great fanfare last week the State Department reported that Iran had complied with that key condition of the interim agreement, significantly reducing its stockpile of enriched uranium – an accurate statement as long as one ignores Iran’s violations. Along with some of the people interviewed by Reuters, a leading non-proliferation think tank is bashing the Administration for trying to sweep the violations under the rug.

Wild Thing's comment..............

Obama always has been and will always be a liar. He’ll get a deal with the Iranians for his legacy or what he thinks will be his legacy. When the Iranians have accomplished the ability to produce working nuclear weapons, that technology will make its way into the hands of terrorists who will do the work for the Iranian government.

The Iranians are playing Obama like a fiddle. He actually believes he can out strategize them but they're holding the upper hand.

obama hates America as much as any member of the Iranian parliament. I don't know if obama is Indonesian or Kenyan or what, but he thinks he is the man of the world and he wants to bring America out of it's exceptionalism and make America just another country.
