National Security Desk: More Secret Side Deals For Iran
By Patriot Post,Sep 02, 2016
It seems like every time we report on Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran (or Hillary Clinton’s scandals, or ObamaCare, etc., etc.), things get worse. David Albright and Andrea Stricker of the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS — yeah, we know), a DC think tank specializing in nuclear issues, reveal the latest problem. They write, “We have learned that some nuclear stocks and facilities were not in accordance with JCPOA limits on Implementation Day, but in anticipation the Joint Commission had earlier and secretly exempted them from the JCPOA limits.” (JCPOA stands for Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the official name for the deal.) In other words, Obama agreed to secret side deals that made Iran’s compliance unnecessary. He allowed exemptions for low-enriched uranium, heavy water production and radiation containment chambers. The whole idea of secret exemptions, warn Albright and Stricker, “risks advantaging Iran by allowing it to try to systematically weaken” the JCPOA.
