– ‘Marc Thaasn – Washington Post’ – President Obama promised that the nuclear deal with Iran will not be “based on trust”, but on “verification which is unprecedented.” But now it turns out that the verification regime is talking about Obama based on confidence before anything else; it is confidence based on two agreements lateral undercover negotiated upon between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) only, and it seems that no one-including Obama may Management These negotiations saw.
And what is even worse is that Obama did not disclose to Congress about the existence of this secret side deals when it referred the nuclear deal to Capitol Hill. The disclosure of these agreements through completely by chance, and by two members of Congress, are Mike Pompeo, and Tom Cotton, who were present at the meeting in Vienna with the United Nations and the relevant agency. In an interview I had with him, he told me Pompeo he and Senator Cotton were In a meeting with the Deputy Director of International Atomic Energy Agency, two senior Iranian negotiator at the agency just days after the announcement of the nuclear deal. When deputies asked how that will be implemented through the IAEA verification operations in the Iranian military complex in Parchin, said the two officials Agency that all the details are present in the agreements that have been negotiated between the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Iranian government. It was the first time Pompeo and Cotton heard in all these side deals. Pompeo says that he and his colleague request to see those agreements, individual agency officials: “Oh no, of course not .. .. will not be able to see.” And then, all those who were on the table wanted to know whether the Secretary of State, John Kerry, has seen these agreements, individual agency officials: ” No, Minister Kerry did not see any of them. Any US will never be able to see it. ” It turned out that the International Atomic Energy Agency and Iran are two of the only know the actual content of these agreements. This is a picture of officials from Iran and the IAEA, while holding what appears to be the secret agreements: In other words, Obama is betting on our national security, and delivers Iran more than $ 150 billion as a result of an easing of sanctions, based on secret agreements have been negotiated between the International Atomic Energy Agency and Iran only, and did not can any US official to see the content. Pompeo says: “We need to see these documents; in order to assess whether the verification enough, or not enough to make such a big concession to the Iranians.” He adds: “should not be required of any member of Congress to vote on the agreement has such historical significance without knowing the terms of the verification process.” In fact, the Obama administration is a failure in the transfer of these side deals to Congress in violation of the law. And it provides for a review of nuclear deal with Iran’s law, which was signed by Obama, explicitly that the President may refer the nuclear deal with “all the material and relevant annexes”. This includes clearly no side agreements covering verification of Iran’s compliance. The Susan Rice told reporters that the administration “submitted to Congress all the documents that we have or we were part of the drafting process, and all the documents that have been shared with us by the agency.” Certainly, this is not what the law requires. administration and can not be handed over documents do not own it seems to Congress. But this point make Pompeu raises questions more disturbing, in fact, such as: Why is the president allowed to be negotiated (on verification) by a party other than the United States? How can the management to sign a deal with the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, and the state spent a full presence in the fraud, without the knowledge of the basic provisions to verify the commitment of this country? With regard to the content of the side deals secret, Senator Bob Menendez says that one of these Side deals organize inspections at the Parchin military complex, and allow Iran to collect their own soil samples, instead of the IAEA inspectors so. This is such as to allow Lance Armstrong to collect its own to achieve doping blood samples. He says Pompeo: “I think that if we were able to see these agreements, we will find half a dozen of the surprising things, and you will realize that we did not get a check actually.” It is incumbent upon Congress to insist on seeing these side deals before the vote on the Iran deal. The only way to stop the agreement is to exceed the Congress presidential veto of the resolution refused to get through a vote of two-thirds of both houses. This will vote 13 Democrats requires in the Senate, and 45 Democrats in the House of Representatives, against the agreement, which was very unlikely before the disclosure of the existence of these secret deals. It remains to be seen whether the disclosure of side deals secrecy would make it impossible to Democrats voting in favor of the agreement Iran. Pompeo wondering: How will explain these to their constituents that they voted in favor of the nuclear deal with Iran without knowing how it will be checked for compliance with this deal? He adds: “It will be my job in the next 45 days to convince the 45 Democrats in the House of Representatives override a presidential veto .. It is a difficult task, but well worth the effort.”
