Iran's N. Rights Acknowledged by Obama (Fars News Agency)
Fars News Agency ^ | 2012-01-21

TEHRAN (FNA)- Senior Iranian parliamentary sources revealed on Saturday that the Swiss envoy to Tehran has quoted US President Barack Obama as acknowledging Iran's nuclear rights.

Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti attended a meeting with senior Iranian foreign ministry officials a few days ago to submit a letter from the US president to Tehran leaders.

Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA that during the meeting, Agosti had told the Iranian officials that President Barack Obama recognizes Iran's right of access and use of the nuclear technology.

"There are a couple of points with regard to this (US) message (to Iran)," Ebrahimi said and added, "Firstly, during the session to submit the message, the Swiss ambassador to Tehran quoted the US president as saying that 'we (the US) recognize your nuclear rights'."

As regards the second issue, the lawmaker said that the Swiss diplomat had also quoted Obama as saying that "I didn't want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision."

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Sunday that Iran has received a US message regarding the Strait of Hormoz via three different channels.

"The US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice had handed a letter to Iran's Ambassador to the UN Mohammad Khazayee; the Swiss Ambassador to Tehran (Livia Leu Agosti) also conveyed the same thing; and Iraqi President Jalal Talabani delivered the same message to Iranian officials," he said last Sunday.

Nice.

I’m afraid that this is very likely true, since I don’t think the Iranians would venture to lie about what the Swiss envoy told them.

Also, I wouldn’t be inclined to believe what our enemies tell us, but Fars is probably a much more accurate source than the NY Times.

Don’t look for the media to report this story any time soon. No one but Drudge, and maybe Rush.

After January, Obama won’t be approving anything.

He will be vacationing on his own money.

I know he will be safe in Hawaii an will not need more than 3 Secret service Agents. At least that is how many I would give him.

"US President Barack Obama as acknowledging Iran's nuclear rights."

I bet the Saudis are beginning to think their little investment backfired.

Please remember....Romney is getting daily briefings....Whether they are honest or not is another matter...

IMHO...That's what the Crowley Obama "terror" love fest was about.

He acknowledges Iran’s rights to nuclear technology. But not the American people’s rights to nuclear technology.

As I seem to recall, this sort of nonsense worked out so well for the world with North Korea. The key difference is that with the Norks, China keeps them on a fairly short leash, and while they pull and stray a bit, they know they can't push things too far.

On the other hand, with the Iranian Mullahs, we've got a bunch of sociopath rulers who have NO PROBLEM with driving children before their troops to "detect" land mines, and have said that in order to destroy Israel, they have no problem with losing hundreds of millions of muslims. According to them, it would be a fair trade-off.

And Germany had the right to re-arm prior to WWII. Whose right was it to prevent Germany, a sovereign nation, from rearming themselves. History repeats itself.

Iran's nuclear rights...

No doubt 0' found this right in the Constitution, so felt justified in doing this.

Not exactly sure where, probably on one of the paper edges next to abortion and contraception.

I suppose we will be afforded the opportunity to see how well Ron Paul’s approach to foreign policy works.

I hope to see the day that we vote in our first black Republican president, Condi, or Allen West. I would have loved to have Herman Cain as our president but I doubt he would ever run again. But then maybe it could be someone like Mia Love someday.

GOOD NEWS CAME OUT FROM POLLS SHOWING ROMNEY AHEAD OF OBAMA! BUT WE CAN'T REST YET!! JUST 15 DAYS TO GO!

We must keep talking to ANY person we know of who is going to vote for Obama. Send them these three videos and ask them to watch and reply.
I don't know how ANY American could listen to these interviews and then STILL vote for Obama!

Some how this announcement comes as no surprise to me. It was expected to be the case.
We knew this administration would attempt all angles to placate the Iranian theocracy. Barrack Chamberlain is pleasing the hell out of Putin as well. Where in dire straights, that's for sure.

I suppose we could send them some via air express, at great velocity. Indeed, perhaps the more bellicose members of the ummah should be given enlightenment; the type which can only come from receiving “the light of a thousand suns.”

The story that started it all: Obama cuts deal with Iran over nukes
Sanctions to vanish in exchange for ‘temporary’ halt in enrichment work

http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/obama-cuts-deal-with-iran-over-nukes/

Editor’s note: Tonight the New York Times is reporting the Obama administration is opening direct talks with Iran in uranium enrichment issues. WND’s earlier reports, including this one, provide the depth and context for this announcement. Reza Kahlili will discuss this breaking story on an upcoming edition of “Fox and Friends,” time to be announced.

Iranian and U.S. negotiators have reached an agreement that calls for Iran to halt part of its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of many of the U.S. sanctions against the Islamic regime, according to a highly placed source...

"I hope to see the day that we vote in our first black Republican president...."

As for me... well I hope to see the day when we do NOT look at each other as "black" or "white",or put candidates in categories based on race.... but rather see each other as "Americans" first.

You completely missed my point but I guess that's my fault because I didn't explain myself. I just thought everyone would know what I was talking about without my having to explain.

The Republican party was founded by both black and white Americans. Blacks and whites working together as equals. So there is nothing wrong with my hoping to see the day come that we vote in our first black Republican president.

Gloria, I totally understand your point and fully agree with you. I was just adding to the concept.

Sorry. Forgot the /sarc

There are times when we have to be “unfair.” Millions of lives depend on us being “unfair.”
