This past January, as the Iran nuclear deal was implemented, the Obama administration justified its eagerness to end sanctions by asserting that Tehran had scrupulously kept all its promises. But it turns out that the demands placed on Iran werent as strict as we were led to believe. The United States granted exemptions to the Islamist regime in order to more quickly end the international restrictions on doing business with it.

The Current Occupant is not noted for doing much of anything right.
He could screw up a one-car funeral. Like take the wrong body to the wrong cemetery, and put it in somebody else’s grave.
Wait until his term is nearing its end, and hold-on!
If some of these folks who had said the sky is falling suddenly said, You know what? We were wrong, and we are glad that Iran no longer has the capacity to break out in short-term and develop a nuclear weapon.
