Rouhani told a news conference that the deal was a political understanding reached with the...

Both Rep. Donald Norcross (D – N.J.) and Rep. Brendan Boyle (D – Pa.) have announced that they will stand on principle and oppose the nuclear deal with Iran (a/k/a, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA.) I know almost nothing about either of these legislators, but I have tremendous...

A number of stories have been reported since the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the nuclear deal with Iran is known, that raise serious questions about its effectiveness to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon and even about whether or not it will stop...

By now, Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R – Ariz.) announcement that he will oppose the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has been overshadowed by Sen. Robert Menendez’ (D – N.J.) Tuesday announcement of his opposition.

Still, I’d like to revisit Flake’s announcement because he was viewed by the administration, in the words of ...

John Kerry Iran Deal

There John Kerry goes again.

Jeffrey Goldberg, the go-to person when the Obama administration wants to get its position out because Goldberg is pro-Israel, landed an interview with John Kerry. The topline storyline is that Kerry is warning the U.S. Congress not to screw (with?) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei:

“The ayatollah constantly believed that...

Obama Press Conf Iran Deal end July 15 2015

The Obama administration thinks it outsmarted opponents of the Iran deal by running to the U.N. Security Council for international approval before Congress’s review period even started.

It was a typical Obama F-U to his domestic opponents.

Since Congress now needs a super-majority to block the deal, the outcome is uncertain. The Obama...

Obama Iran Nuke Deal Announcement 3

We are told that the Obama administration, its successor and European governments will strictly enforce Iran’s adherence to the nuclear deal.

Put aside for the moment the problems with the deal, and focus on compliance. Put aside also that Iran has a history of cheating on nuclear issues.

We have a recent example...

The United Nations Security Council, at around 9 a.m. (Eastern) this morning, unanimously approved the Iran nuclear deal, Resolution 2231, 15-0.

In his combative press conference last week to defend the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, President Barack Obama issued the following challenge:

So to go back to Congress, I challenge those who are objecting to this agreement, number one, to read the agreement before they comment on it; number two, to explain...

It is not often that I feel compelled to defend President Obama. But in this case I will. The recent nuclear deal with Iran reveals that he is not a poor negotiator but rather an excellent one.

The President has been mocked for his negotiation skills throughout his tenure by the Left...

I can’t recall an event since I started this website in 2008 that has been as historically consequential as the nuclear deal the United States and five other countries just struck with Iran.

It is the sweep of history.

The deal is Obama’s deal. He drove it, he crafted it with John Kerry...

President Barack Obama has, at least since 2012, claimed that he has Israel’s back regarding his engagement with Iran.

But as the Iran nuke negotiations move closer to an agreement, with reports it could happen by tomorrow, it is clear that Obama’s words are empty rhetoric.

Two stories reported yesterday raise questions whether the Obama administration is willing to devise a deal that will be comprehensive to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear device and even if it could, would it have the will to enforce it.

In the first case, Jay Solomon of The Wall Street Journal reported...
