Obama Appeases the Ayatollah, Again

During negotiations over the Iranian nuclear deal, the Obama administration did whatever was necessary to appease the ayatollah's demands. Many on the left hoped that by negotiating with Iran, the regime might moderate its anti-Western attitudes, curb its belligerence and open up to world trade.

During negotiations over the Iranian nuclear deal, the Obama administration did whatever was necessary to appease the ayatollah’s demands. Many on the left hoped that by negotiating with Iran, the regime might moderate its anti-Western attitudes, curb its belligerence and open up to world trade.

Instead, Iran has banned U.S. products and test-fired two ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, clearly violating U.N. sanctions.

Members of Congress, including many who supported Obama’s nuclear deal, are now demanding that the president respond to these illegal missile tests. After all, something’s not right here: If Iran’s nuclear program is truly peaceful, why is it testing missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads?

Meanwhile, in the wake of the Paris and San Bernardino terrorist attacks, Congress moved quickly to address weaknesses in our immigration system by closing a number of obvious loopholes in the visa waiver program. This program allows foreign individuals to enter the United States with minimal scrutiny.

But the Iranians objected, claiming that changes intended to keep America safe amounted to new sanctions on Iran, in violation of the terms of the nuclear deal.

I’m not making this up, folks. Iran just fired off two nuclear-capable missiles, and now it is lecturing us about sanctions violations!

Evidently, there is no limit to the Obama administration’s appeasement. Rather than telling the ayatollah to take a hike, Secretary of State John Kerry reassured the Iranian regime that the new law intended to keep terrorists out of the country will in no way impact travel from the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism.

This kind of insanity is why a majority of Americans, for the first time ever, believe that the government is failing to protect us from terrorism.
