ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry have put the United States and other countries in jeopardy by entering into an agreement with Iran which temporarily curbs Tehran’s nuclear-armaments program. Either our leaders have been duped or they are naive (or both). Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry are more concerned about their respective legacies than the security of the world.

Iran said it will place its nuclear-development program on hold and allow inspection of its facilities, but it has had time to disperse and hide its labs. Under the agreement Iran can deny inspectors access to undeclared sites. In such a case the inspection process would go before a number of committees for resolution, a process that could take close to a month. This is enough time for Iran to move the equipment and materials.

The agreement allows the lifting of economic sanctions, which will immediately release $150 billion, and in the future, trillions of dollars more. This money will allow Iran to purchase armaments, which will be used to continue the destabilization of Middle Eastern countries and the ongoing sponsorship of Islamic terrorism in the world. And don’t forget, Iran hates the United States.

Congress should not approve this terrible agreement.
