Report: US, Iran to hold one-on-one talks about Tehran's nuclear program
The United States and Iran have reportedly agreed to one-on-one negotiations over Tehrans nuclear program.
The talks -- reported first by The New York Times and based on discussions with Obama administration officials -- come as Iran is believed to be building a nuclear weapon and as a result is under heavy economic sanctions.
Israel is warned that Iran is close to achieving nuclear capability and has pushed for the United State vow to take military action if needed.
State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland said Saturday night she has no information to report as of yet. And the Defense Department referred questions to the White House.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Irans supreme leader, has the last word on whether the firs-ever talks should occur, according to The Times.
Iranian officials have insisted that the talks wait until after the presidential election.
Election Day is less than three weeks away. And the final debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney, on Monday, is about foreign policy.

Morris wanted to make Americans aware of this possible "October Surprise" which is suppose to make Obama look good on foreign affairs
Yeah, foreign affairs October surprise is not going to cut it.
Might gain him a point or two, but people are focused on the economy like a laser beam.
Morris has been warning of this October surprise for a couple of weeks.
I know! I know!
Until November 7th!!!
desperate presidents do stupid stuff.
Some empty promises to beat his chest about for Monday’s debate - to deflate Benghazi.
Having direct talks with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism only legitimizes a POS government in the eyes of their own people. Why would Iran possibly listen? What is Obama going to say to them to convince them they shouldn’t wipe Israel off the face of the earth.
But Slow-Joe said, in the Ryan debate, that the development of Iran’s nuke bomb wasn’t any big f’n deal since they don’t have a delivery system (”...they don;t have aROCKET!”). So is this a reversal of Joe’s position, when he was presumably talking on behalf of the Soetoro Regime? This new tactic by Barry makes little sense.
I think we went through this before....with Obama....and it never happened because of Iran’s terms. It was a farce and so is this.
LOL - I don’t know who I trust less ... Obama or Achmadinnerjacket.
Read on Twitter that the White House is denying this is true..but people have to give Dick Morris credit, for all the crazy things he says sometimes he was right on the money about this..and about the election to. He’s been the only one for months saying that Romney had this election in the bag
I forgot to post my thoughts when I heard Morris speak about the deal having already gone through without Congress or the American People being aware it was in the works and a done deal. How suspect!
As Morris explained there supposedly is no commitment on length of time the Iranians are going to go along with their end of the bargain (about ceasing their uranium enrichment) while sanctions are lifted. Of course we all know that Obama will advertise this as a great feat of successful diplomacy...even though again he is proving to us he’s a foreign policy fool.
Looks like an Iran double cross to me. Iran stalls and makes it look like they are cooperating with 0 and Iran keeps on with the nukes. They don’t want Romney to get elected because he would nuke them.
The proposed agreement?:
“Iran, I will allow you to keep your reactor(s) for peaceful purposes. I will give you 25 high-yield thermonuclear weapons. In return, you will stop messing with Israel until after the election. After that, you can do what you want. Deal?”
Hmmmm....and just how many planed talks, meetings and high level diplomatic discussions has Iran made a monkey of the US in the past?
Not to mention the desire to obliterate the Great Satan.
At the same time, Iran is negotiating with Egypt...to help them with their nuclear program....aka.....watch what the left hand is doing.
The love no one....except theirselves and their muslim ways...aka...kill all the Christians and Jews.
hope many Americans have been following this for those “couple of weeks” too! Thanks for the info.
Fox News just reported this is not true... Breaking
Fox News just reported this is not true... Breaking
Like the promises North Korea makes about their nuclear program.
Fox News says the White House is denying report.
It is all about the election and no piece of paper is going to stop the Iranians from their goal of having a nuclear weapon.
Obama really is willing to sell out the world for another shot at the white house and his vision for the future.
I had earlier predicted that Obama will surpass Neville Chamberlain, and this is how he is going to do it.
I’ve seen this one before . . .
BREAKING NEWS . . . Dateline 1980 . . . After nearly two years of handwringing and pleading, the Khomeini regime is set to release American hostages. The grateful Carter administration has reported today that Iran is finally going to release the long held hostages just in time for elections . . .
IN OTHER NEWS . . . President Carter is widely known to be a bootlicking dupe and desperately needs to be seen as competent, stand-up sort of guy.
IN STILL OTHER NEWS . . . The Obama administration is also known to suck and has recruited the help of fellow Islamofascist thugs to appear competent and manly just in time for elections.
Hussein’s Irani pals will try to save his regime, but nobody believes anything they say... or he says...anymore.
This may have been intented as his October Surprise but it will avail him Nada, Zilch, Zero.
Zero gets Zero from Zero.
BUT WATCH OUT, just as soon as he realizes any “sudden bullsh!t treaty with the wonderful peaceable Mullah Friends of America in Iran” won’t get him re-elected, he will try ANOTHER October Surprise. Something different.
Something, perhaps, even more dangerous to America. (if possible). But something different, for sure.
Be watchful. Since this one is a giant fizzle, he WILL try another October Surprise.
Executive Fiat Orders.... maybe.... to what? cancel all mortgage debts? cancel all student loans (the college people aren’t voting for him this year, they see through his BS when they go and apply for jobs).... cancel all credit card debt?
watch for more attempted October Surprises just as soon as he realizes the world sees through this one and he’s at least 2 years too late trying to pull it on us.
Romney was right to mock 0bama's stunts to enhance his re-election bid by saying "Are you better off than you were 4 weeks ago?", now he needs to drive it home, brash and unashamedly. Reaffirm these truths to be self-evident!
The way I understood the Fox report is: White House (may have) gotten NYTimes to print story that talks would take place after the election implying that if we elect Romney that talks with Iran will not happen. White House is now denying story. Let’s hear from Iran — this could be good.
Is that how you heard it?
Good point, they should be confronted and “squeezed” on this!
Don’t know why the word squeezed came to mind so I looked it up to make sure I had the right context... Websters: “to extract (liquid, etc) by pressure.” Then I had to chuckle to myself because I then had a vision of Biden peeing in his pants (while laughing of course) when being squeezed on his previous “no nuke bomb no big fn deal position.”
Thanks for the last line which I’ve re-quoted you here :)
Yikes! But you might be 99% right!
good additional point.
How much money, electronics, weapons, etc. can we give you to change your mind on wiping Israel off the face of earth?
Really: it comes to "giving them" and "how much."
Trump could make a sweet deal with them but Obama, not so much - we'll lose our shirts. No longer with a military advantage when he is through.
I was watching a 6PM TVOed the “American News” Cable TV Program at 7PM tonight. Forgot it wasn’t real time.
Thanks for alerting me...but in a way doesn’t this breaking development sort of screw any of Obama/Iran surprise policy plans?
That will be Obama's bargaining chip...he will, sub rosa, give them what they need just so he looks like the great diplomate.
You know, the "flexibility" he will have after he is reelected.
Israel can look at a world of hurt from Obama's diplomacy and so can US.
Good one! Mark Levin says if you can't pronounce a foreign name just say it really fast and you'll probably get through it.
They probably wouldn’t want such a report to be buried on a Saturday evening.
Neville Chamberlain had to give up the Sudetenland to appease Hitler. What could Obama give up to appease the Mullahs? Maybe they’ll take California. This might not be so bad afterall.
As Obama has said, he will have “more flexibility” after the election.
Ditto, ditto, ditto....sadly.
Sounds like an Obama deal to me. He really hates America/Americans.
Deja Vu all over again.
That’s the way Fox News presented it. Couple this with the Gloria Alred “October Surprise” and it looks like the Obama media is desperate.
re: Gloria’s Oct surprise
Well, I think we know it’s not a love child with a nanny. I think maybe Drudge was front-running her for anything she might even dream of drumming up.
I’ll have more leeway after I’m re-elected. BTW...is there any way you can slip us some money to help get me re-elected. We borrowed 15 mil from BoA, but I need billions more.There’s tons of people to pay so they can come up with some dirt on the Romney’s and their boys
Just make them think we’re ‘dealing’ to slow your nuclur (sp intended) program.
Yeah, let it look like you’re doing something really fantastic.
Iran knows if Romney wins, they only have a 3 month window to get away with pulling anything. If Iran is even willing to appear to play along, that means they must really be close!
LOL. Yeah, that’ll save your election, BO. Go for it.
