Leaked Secret Document From Iran Deal Shows It Will Be Easier For Iran To Build Nuke Than Thought
Like Obamacare, the President’s awful Iran deal was sold to the American people as one thing, while being something different in reality.
It was purposefully not crafted as a treaty to shield it from Congressional scrutiny and the American people were assured that the deal would prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons.
Now the Associated Press has obtained a document connected to the deal which was kept secret and which shows it will be much easier for Iran to build a weapon than anyone thought.
From the report:
Key restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program imposed under an internationally negotiated deal will ease in slightly more than a decade, cutting the time Tehran would need to build a bomb to six months from present estimates of a year, according to a document obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
The document is the only part linked to last year’s deal between Iran and six foreign powers that hasn’t been made public. It was given to the AP by a diplomat whose work has focused on Iran’s nuclear program for more than a decade, and its authenticity was confirmed by another diplomat who possesses the same document.
The diplomat who shared the document with the AP described it as an add-on agreement to the nuclear deal. But while formally separate from that accord, he said that it was in effect an integral part of the deal and had been approved both by Iran and the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany, the six powers that negotiated the deal with Tehran.
Details published earlier outline most restraints on Iran’s nuclear program meant to reduce the threat that Tehran will turn nuclear activities it says are peaceful to making weapons.
But while some of the constraints extend for 15 years, documents in the public domain are short on details of what happens with Iran’s most proliferation-prone nuclear activity – its uranium enrichment – beyond the first 10 years of the agreement.
The only upside of the Iran Deal is that it is essentially an agreement between Iran and the Obama administration, not the United States, meaning the next president could essentially declare it null and void.
Hopefully, that president will be Trump and hopefully, that’s just what he’ll do.
