With Deadline Looming, U.S. Capitulates to Iran

Proving that the U.S. is more desperate than its Iranian counterparts to reach a nuclear deal — even if it’s a very bad one — Secretary of State John Kerry this week said the U.S. is willing to capitulate on a major sticking point in negotiations as the June 30 deadline draws near. According to The New York Times, “Mr. Kerry suggested major sanctions might be lifted long before international inspectors get definitive answers to their longstanding questions about Iranian experiments and nuclear design work that appeared aimed at developing a bomb.” Here’s Kerry’s rationale: “We’re not fixated on Iran specifically accounting for what they did at one point in time or another. We know what they did. We have no doubt. We have absolute knowledge with respect to the certain military activities they were engaged in. What we’re concerned about is going forward. It’s critical to us to know that going forward, those activities have been stopped, and that we can account for that in a legitimate way.” If Iran can get away with lying about its nuclear program, what else can it get away with? Moreover, as Hot Air’s Allahpundit asks, “What have they learned about bomb-making over the past 20 years? Shouldn’t they be required to let the UN know that before we jumpstart their economy, giving our friends Assad and Hezbollah a shot in the arm on the battlefield?” The Islamic regime may leave the table at the end of the month without an agreement, and it won’t make one iota of difference to them. The Obama administration, meanwhile, is surrendering fundamental demands to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and proving a point made by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld: “Weakness is provocative.”
