Negotiations With Iran Blow Past Another Deadline

Another day, another deadline. For the fourth time since April, the U.S. State Department extended its talks with Iran over the mullahs’ nuclear program. The past few weeks have accomplished little, unless you take into account the 10 pounds of Twizzlers and 20 pounds of string cheese Team USA consumed during that time. The longer Iran stays at the negotiating table in Vienna, the more it gets. Earlier in the year, Barack Obama boasted that his administration’s diplomacy had halted Iran’s nuclear program, reduced its uranium stockpile and forced the country to agree to give nuclear inspectors access — any time, anywhere. Yet for some reason, the negotiation team has conceded these vital elements to a nuclear deal that would ensure Iran would not weaponize its nuclear material. In fact, the U.S. has conceded to Iran at least 12 times. Robert Joseph, who was once the U.S. special envoy for nuclear nonproliferation, said of the deal, “Instead of holding the line on those key issues that would actually determine whether the agreement was good or bad or whether it advances U.S. security interests or undermines them, the [Obama] administration has made concession after concession and the consequences are profound.” It is clear Iran is not sincerely negotiating with the West. Instead, it’s playing the same administration that negotiated with the Taliban, trading five of theirs doing time at Guantanamo for one deserter.
