We are living in a nightmare even Kafka never conceived. We have a president and an entire administration that lies about everything while polls universally show his approval rating is back up to 48%. In large part, that is thanks to the power of the press who cover up his lies. This latest deceit is truly concerning.
Bloomberg News is reporting that the Obama administration knew for years that Iran has been three months from having a bomb. This information was only just declassified because Barack Obama is currently using this information to prove he needs a deal with Iran that will supposedly keep Iran from having a bomb for a year instead of three months.
Mr. Obama did admit it the day he announced the nuclear agreement was reached at the end of March but now we know they’ve known for quite some time.
Prior to this Barack Obama embarrassed Netanyahu for saying Iran was a few months away from having a bomb knowing full well that he was correct.
Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz casually admitted on Monday that the U.S. had the information for “quite some time.”
“They are now, they are right now spinning, I mean enriching with 9,400 centrifuges out of their roughly 19,000. Plus all the . . . . R&D work. If you put that together it’s very, very little time to go forward. That’s the 2-3 months.”
Even his casual approach is deceitful – it’s meant to minimize the seriousness of this latest lie.
Since the beginning of his second term, Obama has insisted Iran was over a year away from having a bomb.
On October 5th 2013, Barack Obama told the Associated Press in an interview that Iran was a year or so away from having a bomb. At the same time, Israel estimated a few months. Obama has never done a thing to change the public’s thinking until now as he tells the truth about the timeline to push the Iran deal. Originally, he lied to push the Iran deal.
Whatever works is Obama’s amoral guideline.
