Skip to comments.Obama withholds from Israel details of nuclear accord with Iran

US Vice President Joe Biden when he met Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Monday night, Jan. 13, refused to level with him on the detailed agreements which the Americans claimed were reached by the six powers and Iran in their talks earlier this week on the implementation of their first-stage Geneva accord. This is reported by debkafiles Washington and Jerusalem sources. It was the first time US President Barack Obama personally vetoed a briefing to Israel on the content of the international nuclear negotiations he instigated - notwithstanding his private and public pledges to Netanyahu of full transparency. This secretiveness has stirred concern and mistrust in Jerusalem on two grounds:
1. It denotes a sharp decline in the strategic relations between the Obama administration and the Netanyahu government and leaves Israel in the dark on an issue of vital concern to its security. 2. It is suspected that there is no implementation agreement at all and that the US President, Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are repeating the performance they put on three months ago in Geneva. Then, they presented a very general framework of non-binding clauses reached between the six powers and Iran as a genuine, full-fledged, interim accord, when in reality it omitted the details on how and when Iran would dismantle the military side of its nuclear program, and inter alia neglected to address the critical issue of Irans nuclear-capable ballistic missiles.
Tehran itself has contradicted these assertions as misleading," referring specifically to the White House statement of Jan. 12 which said: From Jan. 20, Iran will for the first time start eliminating its stockpile of higher level enriched uranium and dismantling some of the infrastructure that makes such enrichment possible.
Three days later, on Tuesday, Jan 15. Irans lead negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Aragchi, went on national television with a less than polite denial: different interpretations come out of a single document and that is natural, he said. But we had better try to have common interpretations, and that is why during the talks we paused a couple of times and continued with the participation of the higher levels. Homing in on the White House term dismantling, Aragchi countered: We are aware of Mr. Obamas problems in Congress, but dismantling abuses the word after the recent deal.
In the light of the conflicting versions coming out the White House and Tehran - and Joe Bidens refusal to level with Netanyahu on the latest rounds of nuclear talks - Israel is left wondering what in fact US-led international nuclear diplomacy has achieved in the way of curbing Irans progress toward a bomb if anything.
To the Jewish nation...our prayers are with you. I pray for the safety of your people, I pray your enemies from all sides be confused and brought impotent.
The God is Abraham, Issac and Jacob bless, strengthen and protect you as bring to destruction those who threaten your nation. God speed Israel.
Obama has been protecting the islamoNazi nuclear and missile factories for five years already. He even threatened war against anybody who dared try to stop them. And it’s totally consistent with his support of Muslim brothers and other Islamic terrorists elsewhere (Libya , Syria, etc ). There’s nothing inconsistent in this report.
I look at it as much more...I think it is more likely classified as a treaty....
See the school bus coming down the road.
See the wheels on the school bus go round and round.
See Israel get thrown under the wheels of the school bus.
See everyone happy but Israel.
See the driver of the school bus with one hand on the steering wheel and the other holding a Koran.
See the driver smiling.
And some wonder why Israel needs to spy on the US.
How on earth can our government negotiate an agreement on such an important issue like this and keep the details secret from not only Israel, but American citizens? I wasn’t aware that this was even possible/legal.
Just shows what I know.
Coming from the Ø regime whose modus operandi is to implement/pass X to find out what is in X, maybe... but never fully...
This is really vile! Israel’s security is at stake. Barack
Obama is the least transparent President ever. He has promised transparency over and over again and never kept his word. It is best said that he is all talk and no action.
I would not blame Israel if they were to hit Iran militarily right now, because there is a reason Obama is hiding what is going on from Israel, and I don’t think it is good for them. I think this Iran deal smells to high heavens and is meant to politically tie up Israel so they cannot attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. Otherwise, why would Obama keep the details from Israel?
Well, now it makes sense on what we are doing with the Mexican cartels. We give them weapons, immunization against prosecution in exchange for them telling us where and when the terrorists will cross into the US.
Sort of like Iran/Contra.
this man oooooooooohhhhhhhh.
Israel is one of our most trusted allies and is the receiver of Iran’s completion of a nuclear device - this Kenyan has absolutely zero class
Nero and No-C-em Holder dealt with the Cartels for two fold.
They knew if the flooded the Country with Assault Weapons the Mexican Government would put alot of pressure on USA to restrict guns claiming they are being smuggled across and killing Mexican Nationals. The feds would blame it on rouge Gun Dealers... AS THEY DID.
The other reason was They could pit one cartel against another gaining information on where and when operations would take place. This gives the Alphabet Soup agencies info. that they can then use to confiscate Billions in Cash, arms, vehicles etc. that all then become property of the agencies to expand their departments.
Don’t get too rowdy. Zero is probably working on a plan to ban Jews in the USA.
The only “silver lining” in this story is that I am more likely now to collect on my $100 bet with a Jewish friend of mine - that the big 0 would eventually sell Israel down the river to the Mussies.
I can only say “more likely” because it is really quite something to behold how adept my friend is (as a typical liberal) at conjuring up excuses and explanations which effectively blind him to the truth.
