Last week, it was announced that the United States and five other world powers had struck a deal with Iran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for lighter sanctions. The Obama Administration lauded the compromise. President Obama himself said: ”This will help Iran from building a nuclear weapon. Over the coming months, we’re going to continue our diplomacy with the goal of achieving a comprehensive solution that deals with the threat of Iran’s nuclear program once and for all.” But many, including Israel, believe the U.S. got played.
On Monday’s Glenn Beck Program, TheBlaze’s national security editor, Buck Sexton, joined Glenn to discuss what he described as “incredibly suspicious timing” when it comes to the announcement of the deal. While the Obama Administration was desperate for a victory (especially in light of the failed Obamacare rollout), many on the left and right have criticized the agreement.
Buck explained there has been a lot of posturing from both the U.S. and Iran, and he believes that most likely means there have been a lot of lies. The U.S. and Iran have been talking through proxies for months. The Obama Administration may call it ‘secret diplomacy,’ but in reality, President Obama has been engaged in unilateral talks with Iran – sans preconditions.
Meanwhile, Buck explained that the Iranians have sniffed out the President’s arrogance and incompetence, and they have masterfully exploited it. The Mullahs will go nuclear, Buck concluded, and it is just a question of whether President Obama will still be in office when they do.
