ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Secret documents obtained by the Associated Press that were attached to last year’s nuclear “deal” with Iran will allow the Islamic theocracy to get nuclear weapons in half the time stated by the Obama administration, in about 10 years.  This revelation confirms the worst fears of those worried about American national security in the face of a nuclear armed Iran. Essentially, the Obama administration sold out and betrayed the United States, and lied to the American public about it. The documents were leaked by diplomats involved in the deal.

The document is the only secret text linked to last year’s agreement between Iran and six foreign powers. It says that after a period between 11 to 13 years, Iran can replace its 5,060 inefficient centrifuges with up to 3,500 advanced machines.  Since those are five times as efficient, the time Iran would need to make a weapon would drop from a year to six months, reports the Associated Press.  

A few months ago administration officials bragged about how they had created an echo chamber of false information to sell the deal to the public. Now we know that this president actually betrayed American national security and blatantly lied to everyone who was concerned about the negotiations, confirming worst suspicions.  

This “deal” needs to be torn up as soon as possible so the full extent of the damage to America can be uncovered by the next president.
