Recently, the Obama administration had egg on their faces regarding its dealings with Iran. While Obama and Kerry feverishly worked to allow Iran to get the bomb and threaten Israel, America, and the rest of the developed world, inconvenient truths have been raising their ugly heads and putting barriers in the administration’s quest to appease the mullahs.
For example, 47 members of the United States Senate wrote an open letter to Iran and explained the workings of our Constitutional system where an agreement with a foreign power that is not approved by the Senate will have no standing and can be immediately repealed with the election of a new president. This greatly angered the administration and those on the appeasing left, but it had the fortunate quality that it was the truth.
Another issue has risen its ugly head over the last few days; Iran’s Supreme Leader, while speaking to a group in-country, chanted “Death to America!” This was immediately after our Dear Leader had pleaded with the Iranian people to give him a deal. The five or six people outside of the government who actually heard Obama’s address, since they don’t have an independent media, probably were unimpressed.
However, the Ayatollah’s comments made the world press–and I’m sure were heard by most Iranians.
On Monday, the White House dismissed Ayatollah Khamenei’s “Death to America” rhetoric, telling CNN that it was “intended for a domestic political audience.” That comment came on the heels of White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explaining that such rhetoric provided even more reason for negotiating a deal with the Iranian regime.
You can’t make this stuff up!
I suppose if we suddenly found out about secret Iranian bomb-making facilities (which in all likelihood exist), the administration would find a way to shrug this off as well.
Obama’s agenda is to allow Iran to get the bomb to counter Israel. There is no other explanation for his behavior.
