  • Say 'no' to Iran, because our Middle East allies deserve better

    At some point in the second term of any presidency, the soaring eagle becomes a lame-duck with more quack than quake in its steps. With his place in history assured, President Obama has forged a new healthcare regime, restored relations with Cuba, made unprecedented visits and negotiated a nuclear deal with Iran. The latter of these strains U.S. relations with America's staunchest Middle East allies ó Israel and Saudi Arabia ó beyond credulity, and suggests the president may be too absorbed in creating his own legacy to think clearly. Obama called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) "the most...

    The State Department admitted Wednesday that a 2013 press briefing video was purposefully altered to remove a portion of a discussion about the Iran nuclear talks, after an unknown State Department official asked that it be edited out. Spokesman John Kirby's announcement contradicted the position held by the department for the last three weeks, during which officials said the video was missing because of a "glitch." But Kirby said officials didn't know who asked for the video to be edited, and said the department is unlikely to investigate further into who wanted the video to be edited. Kirby said he...

The semiofficial Tasnim News Agency reported earlier Monday that the country fired a missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,243 miles) two weeks ago, citing Brig. Gen. Ali Abdollahi. The missile was precision-guided and could accurately strike a target with a 26-foot margin of error, he said. But Defense Minister Brig. Gen.

The test-firing of the missile, with a range of 2,000 kilometers, or 1,250 miles, was carried out two weeks ago, the agency quoted Gen. Ali Abdollahi, deputy chief of headquarters of armed forces, as saying. Iran, which insists the ballistic tests do not violate the nuclear deal, is likely seeking to demonstrate it is pushing ahead with its ballistic program despite scaling back...

What makes that so bizarre is that Rhodes has no background in foreign policy at all. He was a failed short story writer who wandered into the orbit of Obama aides...

Careful analysis of the ranks and unit affiliations of Iranians reported as having been killed in Syria demonstrates that IRGC officers are leading soldiers in combat and not merely advising.

    Iran has removed the core of its heavy-water nuclear reactor in Arak and filled it with cement, the BBC reported on Monday, citing Iran’s semiofficial Fars news agency. The fate of the reactor was one of the sticking points in nuclear negotiations between Iran and the six world powers, which reached a deal in July of last year. Under the terms of the deal, Iran agreed the heavy-water reactor would be reconfigured so it was not capable of yielding material for a nuclear weapon.

  • Obama Admin: Congressional Crackdown on Terror Will Violate Iran Deal

    Senior Obama administration officials are expressing concern that congressional attempts to tighten laws preventing terrorists from entering the United States could violate the Iran nuclear agreement and prompt Tehran to walk away from the agreement. Congress is considering measures that would tighten the Visa Waiver Program to make it harder for potential terrorists to legally enter the United States by increasing restrictions on individuals who have travelled to countries with prominent terrorist organizations from bypassing security checks upon entering the United States.

    Iran did work related to developing nuclear arms in the past, the U.N. atomic agency concluded in a report Wednesday that wraps up a near decade of investigations and opens the way to implementing a landmark deal aimed at reducing any future nuclear threat from Tehran. Iran has consistently denied any interest in nuclear arms or past work on such weapons, and Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqhchi told Iranian television that the International Atomic Energy Agency report "confirms the peaceful nature" Iran's nuclear program. But the report contested that view and came down on the side of U.S. allegations,...

    Iran's test this weekend of a new surface-to-surface ballistic missile "likely" violated a U.N. resolution, an administration official told CNN on Monday. Based on information the administration has so far, the test appears to be in violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1929, which stipulates that Iran cannot engage in any activities related to ballistic missiles.

    Sometime this week, President Obama is scheduled to sign an executive order to meet the Oct. 15 ďadoption dayĒ he has set for the nuclear deal he says he has made with Iran. According to the presidentís timetable the next step would be ďthe start day of implementation,Ē fixed for Dec. 15. But as things now stand, Obama may end up being the only person in the world to sign his much-wanted deal, in effect making a treaty with himself. The Iranians have signed nothing and have no plans for doing so. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)...

    Hopefully someone will bring this up on conservative radio and cable news. Obama is against us possessing weapons so we can protect our families, yet has no problem allowing Iran to build nuclear weapons that could someday wind up here!, Well? Does this make any sense to you? And we all know that any lunatic thats wants to kill will do so even if he can't find a weapon. Remember that Terrorist Attack In Boston?

    UNITED NATIONS: Pope Francis on Friday threw his support behind Iran's accord with major powers as he backed a goal of global abolition of nuclear weapons. The Iran agreement "is proof of the potential of political goodwill, exercised with sincerity, patience and constancy," Francis said in an address to the United Nations. "I express my hope that this agreement will be lasting and efficacious, and bring forth the desired fruits with the cooperation of all the parties involved," he said. Francis made his remarks a day after a friendly welcome at the U.S. Congress, where many Republican lawmakers have vehemently...

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked a resolution disapproving the Iran nuclear deal for a second time, standing firm behind the signature foreign policy initiative of President Obamaís second term. The Senate voted 56-42 for the Iran resolution, short of the 60 votes needed to move forward. Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), both candidates for president, didn't vote. Meanwhile, in a repeat of last week, Democratic Sens. Ben Cardin (Md.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Robert Menendez (N.J.) and Charles Schumer (N.Y.) bucked Obama to oppose the Iran agreement.
