A Year Later and Iran Is More Dangerous Than Ever

It’s an appropriate “achievement” for Obama because it’s an abject failure

Saturday marked the anniversary of the day the West established the framework of the nuclear deal with Iran — the deal the Obama administration claimed would ensure peace in our time in exchange for reduced sanctions and a whole lot of unfrozen assets. It didn’t work out the way Barack Obama promised. Iran can destabilize the region through more than just an underground nuclear program. Its capture of U.S. sailors and continued missile tests in violation of UN sanctions are two recent examples.

“It is now clear that one year since the framework for the deal was agreed upon, Iran sees it as an opportunity to increase hostilities in the region,” Yousef Al Otaiba, the ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to the United States, wrote in an editorial. “But instead of accepting this as an unfortunate reality, the international community must intensify its actions to check Iran’s strategic ambitions.”

Meanwhile, lifting sanctions has hit a snag. According to Iran, it isn’t yet feeling the effects of lifted sanctions. But Obama the community organizer accused Iran of not following the “spirit of the agreement,” and in doing so alienating banks and other countries. At the same time, congressional staffers were briefed on a U.S. Treasury plan to give the state sponsor of terrorism better access to U.S. dollars.

On a final note, Congress recently notified the State Department that it’s investigating to determine if the administration deliberately misled lawmakers on the nuke deal. This colossally foolish deal is an appropriate signature foreign policy “achievement” for Obama because it’s an abject failure.
