A version of the Iran sanctions legislation from the administration would give the regime more time. Fewer business would face sanctions.
The Obama administration is requesting a number of changes to congressional sanctions on Iran that would make the sanctions less strict, according to a redlined version of the legislation sent to the Armed Services Committees of the House and Senate.
The document, provided to BuzzFeed by a Democratic source who is privy to the negotiations, proposes a number of alterations to a package aimed at raising the pressure on Iran to abandon a nuclear program most American observers believe is aimed at building a weapon. The administration's changes would include waiting 180 days for the sanctions to take effect, as opposed to the 90 days as passed by the Senate.
"..do exactly as told, or we expose you for who you are, understand big ears?"
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
And what is the Iranian “Quid Pro Quo” for lightening up the sanctions?
This is just Obama helping out his Muslim Brothers again.
Pandering to his Muslim buddies once again. IMPEACHMENT! Do it NOW! Wash, rinse, repeat daily.
I had to read that twice to figure out whether "the regime" was the dastardly Iranian regime or the dastardly Obama regime...
It’s amazing to watch how he’s getting away with the systematic destruction of Western civilization totally unimpeded. I don’t think it’s so much that he’s particularly a Muslim sypathizer, as it is his seething hatred for America, democracy and capitalism. He wants to burn it all down, and if the result is a worldwide caliphate under sharia law, well, that’s a small price to pay. He might prefer communism to Islamism, but he’ll settle for the latter if it’s the quicker path to his goal.
Obama’s destruction of Israel and the United States moves forward at record pace. Everyday another outrage and treasonous move.
