US now indicates Iran interim deal wasn’t quite finalized
Times of Israel ^

US now indicates Iran interim deal wasn’t quite finalized ‘Technical details’ have yet to be worked out, State Department says, meaning six-month countdown to permanent deal hasn’t started and Iran isn’t bound by any new terms

Iran is currently enjoying a “window” of time before the six-month deal signed in Geneva early Sunday goes into effect, during which it is not bound to take any credible steps toward disabling its ability to produce a nuclear weapon, the State Department acknowledged Tuesday.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the six-month interim period, during which Iran would take steps to rein in its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, has not yet begun. Furthermore, there are still a number of details to be worked out, she said, without specifying what points had yet to be finalized.

Her comments created confusion as to whether the much-touted interim deal, supposedly reached by P5+1 powers and Iran in Geneva in the early hours of Sunday morning, had actually been completed as claimed. Iran on Tuesday accused the US of publishing an inaccurate account of what had been agreed. And its Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an address to the Iranian parliament Wednesday that Iran would continue construction on the Arak heavy water plant, in an apparent breach of the ostensibly agreed terms.

“The next step here is a continuation of technical discussions at a working level so that we can essentially tee up the implementation of the agreement,” Psaki told reporters Tuesday. “Obviously, once that’s — those technical discussions are worked through, I guess the clock would start. Obviously, there’ll also be a reconvening of the political track with the P5+1, which Under Secretary Sherman will continue to be our lead negotiator on.”

I see what happened. The US got rolled on Arak and rather than admitting it they are claiming the deal was not complete.

They had to roll the thing out Sat night even though unfinished because Obamacare is killing them. They could not handle another round of Sunday morning talk shows leading with O Care.

Let me get this straight! It is not in affect yet, but we the United States, Obama, John Kerry, just instantly gave the Iranians $$$$$$ Billions and let the sanctions relax instantly before verifying anything?????

Why do you people let these idiots stay in power one hour longer?

Idiot leftists don't particularly care about a nuclear war so long as they get money to stay home and watch TV.

We're dealing with a 50% population of SUBHUMAN IDIOTS who comprehend their self-interest at the level of a 2 year old.

If the deal is not in effect, why were the sanctions lifted enabling the Iranians access to their money? At least I seem to remember that already happening in the past week?

“US now indicates Iran interim deal wasn’t quite finalized ‘Technical details’ have yet to be worked out, State Department says, meaning six-month countdown to permanent deal hasn’t started and Iran isn’t bound by any new terms “

So basically it was another photo op for the bullshit artist in chief.

Obama pattern:

Know what you WANT to happen.

Announce that it is finished and all is well.

Wait for the poop to hit the fan when people find out you are lying.

Then blame the Republicans. They forced you to lie.

Go golfing and let Carney try to explain it.

But stuff like this is to be expected when you appoint a buffoon to serve as Secretary of State.

I can only imagine what's being discussed behind closed doors in the Israeli government.

Iran does not agree with what Obama said was agreed to.

What a cluster.

The US is being emasculated by this travesty.
