Washington Post Editorial, "Final Iran Deal Needs to Balance Out the Concessions": Obama Again Lies to the Nation

The Washington Post has finally gotten around to acknowledging that Obama's recent agreement with Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei is shot full of wholes. A Washington Post editorial entitled "Final Iran deal needs to balance out the concessions" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/final-iran-deal-needs-to-balance-out-the-concessions/2013/11/28/72741e92-5772-11e3-835d-e7173847c7cc_story.html?hpid=z3) begins by observing (my emphasis in red):

"THE FACT sheet distributed by the Obama administration about the nuclear agreement with Iran is notable for its omissions. The 2,000-word document, like President Obama’s televised statement Saturday night about the deal, stresses Iran’s pledge to cap its enrichment of uranium, delay the completion of a plutonium-producing reactor and accept additional inspections — measures that will guard against an attempt to produce a bomb while negotiations continue.

What the White House didn’t report is that the text of the accord makes several major concessions to Tehran on the terms of a planned second-stage agreement. Though White House officials and Secretary of State John F. Kerry repeatedly said that Iran’s assertion of a 'right to enrich' uranium would not be recognized in an interim deal, the text says the 'comprehensive solution' will 'involve a mutually defined enrichment program with mutually agreed parameters.' In other words, the United States and its partners have already agreed that Iranian enrichment activity will continue indefinitely. In contrast, a long-standing U.S. demand that an underground enrichment facility be closed is not mentioned."

 The president has again lied to us? What a surprise . . . not.

    European and US corporations are standing in line to cash in on the $40B in assets that was unfrozen this week. Kinda' reminds me of when IBM was selling Nazi Germany some of the first computers and punch cards to keep track of how many Jews were being murdered.
