Iran Supreme Ayatollah: White House lying about nuke deal

Iran Supreme Ayatollah: White House lying about nuke deal

It’s official – there is no Iran nuclear framework deal, just wishful thinking.

Within hours of the White House celebrating a supposed Iran nuclear framework “deal,” it became apparent that the various sides — the U.S., the Iranians and the Europeans — had very different understandings of the deal.

Those competing narratives now have moved to the stage of open declarations by senior Iranian officials that the White House is lying and that key elements in a White House Fact Sheet never were agreed upon and are unacceptable.

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, has taken to Twitter to call the Obama administration a bunch of untrustworthy liars:

Key elements of the supposed deal also are rejected, such as a gradual easing of sanctions and inspection of security installations:

Twitter Khameini White House Iran Fact Sheet Inspections

This is all consistent with what the Iranian President Rouhani has said publicly:

Iran’s president said on Thursday that Tehran would not sign a final nuclear deal with world powers unless all sanctions against the Islamic Republic were removed immediately

“We will not sign any agreements unless on the first day of the implementation of the deal all economic sanctions are totally lifted on the same day,” Rouhani said in a televised speech….

Western governments, which have imposed their own sanctions over and above those adopted by the United Nations, have been pushing for it to happen only gradually.

“In return for Iran’s future cooperation, we and our international partners will provide relief in phases from the sanctions that have impacted Iran’s economy,” US Secretary of State John Kerry said last week.

Defense Minister Hossein Dehgan rejects any inspection of military sites:

“No such agreement has been reached and basically, visiting military centers are among the red lines and no visit to these centers will be allowed,” Brigadier General Hossein Dehgan said, according to Iranian media reports quoting a Defense Ministry statement.

Dehgan said international media reports to the effect that the deal will allow International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) experts to inspect military centers across Iran were “lies” and “deceits.”

Further, Iran’s Foreign Minister, who negotiated the “deal” has promised that Iran immediately will start using its most advanced centrifuges, contrary to claims that Iran only would use older generation centrifuges:

Iran’s negotiator in the nuclear negotiations and its nuclear chief revealed on Tuesday that after a final deal is signed by a June 30 deadline on the framework reached last week, Iran will unleash its most advanced centrifuges for uranium enrichment, threatening a quick turnover in producing a nuclear weapon.

Iran’s semi-official FARS news agency reported on a closed meeting held Tuesday by Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) chief Ali Akbar Salehi, in which they briefed members of Iran’s parliament on the deal being finalized.

In their statements, they said Iran’s most advanced IR-8 centrifuges will be used as soon as the deal removing world sanctions against Iran begins.

Contrast these statements from Iranian officials with how President Obama characterized the “deal” just after it was announced:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


This president is no longer just bad or pathetic, but awful in a way we’ve never seen; he represents a kind of world-beating awfulness which I cannot help but believe is leading toward some catastrophe beyond the type or seriousness we have already calculated. I hope I am wrong.

Helluva deal when you HAVE to vest more credence in what an Iranian dictator says than you CAN vest in our own known liar.

But it doesn’t require a test between these two. The Europeans are saying the same stuff about the “deal”.

It’s diplomatic vaporware. It’s a hoax.

    I had the same initial thought: Holy crap, I actually believe the Supreme Leader of Iran over my own president. Orwell is hereby elevated from visonary to prophet.

Would it be incorrect to say that both Iran and our president have the same opinion on making a deal, as in “It’s only binding on you. I can change whatever I want.”

    I think they have the same opinion about the Iranian negotiators!

    They both trust the Iranian negotiators. (and the Iranian negotiators are possibly lying to both sides)

    Although maybe Kerry and company were hearing what they wanted to hear, or discerning hints.

LOL. Sounds like they have you and your bunch figured out, Barry.

It’s taqiyya. Islamists have a history of taking the “religious” position that it is acceptable to lie to non-Muslims for the purpose of obtaining any advantage over them. This is a “value” they share with socialists, who are willing to lie to the hop polloi, because those people are stupid, and must be controlled for the good of society. I would not be surprised if we eventually found out that this is a tactic agreed to by both sides of this negotiation.

Meanwhile, NPR is carrying an interview with a technical person, allegedly nuclear scientist, who says it is wonderful and all good. Of course, one of the themes of the show was that the intimate details of this deal are just too complex and too technology-oriented to be understood by you and me. Now, why this person hasn’t been giving interviews to actual news organizations is an interesting question.

I do detect some similarity to the Global Warming hoax, and the propaganda that the very real experimental scientific and statistical criticisms of the AGW theory comes from non-scientific, religious “deniers.”

    I heard that NPR bit too. I noticed that the expert somehow neglected to address the Iranian assertion that military research facilities would be off limits to inspectors.

    It’s a heck of a situation when you have this sickening feeling that the story your country’s enemy is telling is true and that your own government’s version isn’t.

Tell me, if Obama were trying to destroy America, what would he be doing differently? He has put us on a crash course with the world. Maybe Bible prophecy is being fulfilled as I sit here typing.

    “Tell me, if Obama were trying to destroy America, what would he be doing differently?”

    Banning coffee and/or doughnuts?

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei and his buddy the Supreme leader of DPRK Kim Jong-il should hold a joint press conference on the catastrophic effects of man-made climate change with Marie Harf translating their comments into Obama hip-hop gibberish.

On second thought though, this would really throw Obama off his game. He wants to be the first Supreme Leader to control the earth’s atmosphere and with the White House remote.

Obama is spinning narratives again, but the Iranians are capably unwinding them. Without a liberal offering of opiates (e.g. collateral), his message will continue to fall on lucid ears.

I guess the ole’ pen and phone trick won’t work on the Ayatollah

    Maybe Obama is not even trying to use that gimmick on Iran. He is using the “I don’t need congress” trick again, but still against we the people.

    I’m hearing he can release these billions Iran has held over here even without Congress, and he can sign an executive agreement with Iran that gives them legitimacy, and as commander in chief he can “stand down” and also threaten Israel if they prepare to attack.

    Only if Democrats decide a nuke going of in a harbor would be bad for their reelection, will they stop the Obama/Jarrett EO machine. They love his pen and phone for opening our borders, or changing Obamacare.

      You can rest assured that when a nuke goes off in a US harbor it will be blamed on Republicans and their budget-cutting ways.

Senator Corker now has a bill for congress to review the deal which he thinks has a veto-proof majority.

Vladimir Putin put him over the top.

Sammy Finkelman | April 15, 2015 at 1:47 am

President Obama gave in – he will sign the bill.

In the meantime, the New York Times prepared an editorial about how terrible the bill was.
