We are being told the inspectors will be allowed into military installations in Iran but Iran says that it’s a “lie”.
Josh Ernest said these are the, “The toughest, most obtrusive inspections…of weapons’ facilities”.
Former Ambassador Bolton responded to Ernest’s comment, “Let me just pick one specific thing he said, that we will have access to their military facilities. Forget about it, If that happened, it would be a big deal, there’s no evidence they have. They’re just making things up.”
Guess who agrees with Ambassador Bolton. That’s right! Iran!
Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said on Wednesday that a Guardian report alleging that Tehran has granted access to its military facilities under the recent framework agreement with the world powers is a lie.
“No such agreement has been made; principally speaking, visit to military centers is among our redlines and no such visit will be accepted,” Gen. Dehqan stressed, rejecting “the report by foreign media outlets, such as the Guardian” as “untruthful allegations”.
Iran might release their own factsheet. Now that would be interesting.
On Monday, Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said Washington officials were untruthful and they an untrustworthy partner.
“After 9 days of breathtaking nuclear negotiations in Lausanne, the US president and other officials now deny the principal agreements and present opposing interpretations,” the influential commander said, and continued, “They cite Iran’s undertakings, but fabricate and deny the commitments that they have made to the Iranian delegation.”
He ended with his theory as to why the U.S. is lying and in a word – leverage.
So there you have it. The Obama administration is indeed making stuff up and we are giving the so-called inspections story four Obamanocchios!
