Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, is not exactly waxing warm and friendly about the United States’ part in the nuclear negotiations. And as The Weekly Standard notes, “Khamenei’s opinion is the only one that really counts” in the Iranian regime.
Regarding the disputed “framework” that’s supposedly the basis for continued talks to limit Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the ayatollah on Thursday blasted the Obama administration, accusing it of “‘lying’ about the proposed terms, being ‘deceptive,’ and having ‘devilish’ intentions….”
Now, while aligning with the opinion of Iran’s dictatorial regime is certainly not the intent of this post, for those who consider President Obama to be less than trustworthy on so many issues, what the ayatollah said does not sound altogether untrue.

In fact, if you consider what Obama himself has repeatedly said about Iran’s obtaining a nuclear weapon, one can reasonably conclude that the president doesn’t live up to his word.
In another supercut video, the Washington Free Beacon has edited together a damning piece that proves Obama is untrustworthy when it comes to Iran and the bomb.
At least 28 times, from when he first ran for the White House in 2008 up through the present day, President Barack Obama said he would prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
Now, after a tentative nuclear deal, Obama admitted in an interview with NPR News this week that Iran could be able to develop a nuclear weapon after 13 years with a much faster breakout time.
