Deal or No Deal? Iran Never Signed It

The State Department quietly admits the fraud.

Remember how Barack Obama’s brilliant nuclear deal with Iran was supposed to protect the world from the radical mullahs obtaining the bomb? Well, it’s always been the sum of all lies, but the most recent revelation is a doozy: Iran never even signed the deal and it’s not legally binding. That isn’t just the maniacal ranting of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, either, but the admission of Obama’s own State Department. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) wondered in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry whether Congress had received the final version of the deal, given it had not been signed. Kerry’s underling, Julia Frifield, the State Department assistant secretary for legislative affairs, replied, “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document.”

So not only is it not a treaty, but it’s not even an executive agreement or a signed document. It’s nothing more than a handshake between liars. But don’t worry, says Frifield: “The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place, as well as Iran’s understanding that we have the capacity to re-impose — and ramp up — our sanctions if Iran does not meet its commitments.” There is no chance Obama re-imposes $100+ billion in lifted sanctions, and the same goes for Europe. Obama did nothing to secure U.S. national security interests. Worse, he undermined them in exchange for an unsigned piece of paper and self-congratulatory high fives all around the State Department. The good news is a Republican president can simply toss Obama’s piece of paper where it belongs — in the garbage.
