- The State Department told members of Congress that it doesn’t have the text of the Iranian nuclear deal’s side agreements. It turns out that’s very convenient for them:
For the Obama administration, not having copies of the side agreements between Iran and the IAEA is convenient. The law requires it to give Congress all the documents it possesses and only those documents. If the side agreements are outside the reach of Kerry, they are outside the reach of Congress and the American people.
The Obama administration is reaching Clinton levels of dissembling here.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei tweeted a picture of President Obama holding a gun to his own head. Obviously we want to cut a nuclear weapons deal with such a person.
Turkey is continuing to bomb PKK sites in northern Iraq. They’ve also rounded up and arrested hundreds of Kurds and alleged members of ISIS. And the Turkish government blocked Kurdish web sites.
