A former CIA operative and spy in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is reporting that a deal has been struck between Barack Obama and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. According to Reza Kahlili, “Iran could announce a temporary halt to uranium enrichment before next month’s U.S. election in a move to save Barack Obama’s presidency.” (1)
Kahlili’s source for this story reports that a 3-member team of negotiators representing President Obama met this week with a Khamenei representative in Qatar. They asked that the Iranian leader “…announce a halt to enrichment, even if temporary, before the Nov. 6 election.” In return, Obama promised to suspend some of the sanctions that have effectively crippled the Iranian economy.
This would not be the first time Obama has been willing to sell out the interests of the American people to the Islamic Republic of Iran. In a January response to Iran’s threat to shut down the Straits of Hormuz, Obama made it clear to Iran’s leadership that, in his view, Iran had “…a right of access to and use of nuclear technology.”
At the same time, through a Swiss diplomat, Obama assured Khamenei that “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on [Iran’s] central bank, but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.” In fact, by threatening a veto on the sanctions legislation, Obama was able to delay its implementation for an additional 120 days and provide himself with the ability to waive any penalties, ostensibly “…for national security reasons or if it would harm the global economy.” Now isn’t that the very picture of a president acting in the best interests of the United States against a nuclear wanna-be nation of religious fanatics?!
So would the Obama Administration “…remove some sanctions on the Iranian central bank and oil industry, with further collaboration after the election…” all for the purpose of obtaining nothing more tangible from Iranian leadership than a statement claiming it had halted uranium enrichment? Would Obama allow Iran to continue on its course to a nuclear weapon, knowing full well that any promise to stop on Iran’s part would be nothing more than the result of a cynical, meaningless election year deal? In short, would Obama knowingly put the American people at even greater risk just to look good to voters?
Of COURSE he would!
Should Barack Obama announce Iran’s sudden willingness to stop the enrichment of uranium prior to the election, it will represent the most despicable betrayal of the United States in our nation’s history. And as the most despicable of presidents occupies the White House, it certainly WON’T be a surprise, “October” or otherwise.
