Barack Obama's Deceptive Nuclear 'Deal' With Iran

The following April 2 2015  headline from +The Hill was deceptive and misleading, to say the least

Obama hails 'historic' Iran deal

Days after the March 31 deadline for negotiations passed, this headline, and many similar across the United States announced an 'historic deal', until the article was examined. The reader then discovers that the deal is really just a 'framework' or an outline for future negotiations with another future deadline.  Even more important, are the caveats and fine print of this 'historic' deal as explained by the President, Barack Obama.
“It is a good deal, a deal that meets our core objectives,” Obama said during an 18-minute speech in the Rose Garden. “If this framework leads to a final comprehensive deal, it will make our country, our allies and our world safer.”
The headline and all the hype surrounding these negotiations show the willingness of the media in the United States to push the false narratives of this administration.  Read the quote again and focus on the phrasing of   'if this framework leads to a final comprehensive deal '.  Okay, so there is really not a deal and the candidate of hope and change thinks hope is a foreign policy strategy. Not only is the narrative false of historic deals, the truth gets stretched and actually breaks after Secretary of State John Kerry's press conference touting the 'agreement' Iran calls out the Obama administration for not telling the truth about the 'framework'

Iran Accuses U.S. of Lying About New Nuke Agreement Says White House misleading Congress, American people with fact sheet

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused the Obama administration of misleading the American people and Congress in afact sheet it released following the culmination of negotiations with the Islamic Republic.

Zarif bragged in an earlier press conference with reporters that the United States had tentatively agreed to let it continue the enrichment of uranium, the key component in a nuclear bomb, as well as key nuclear research.

Zarif additionally said Iran would have all nuclear-related sanctions lifted once a final deal is signed and that the country would not be forced to shut down any of its currently operating nuclear installations. 

Following a subsequent press conference by Secretary of State John Kerry—and release of a administration fact sheet on Iranian concessions—Zarif lashed out on Twitter over what he dubbed lies.

“The solutions are good for all, as they stand,” he tweeted. “There is no need to spin using ‘fact sheets’ so early on.”

Zarif went on to push back against claims by Kerry that the sanctions relief would be implemented in a phased fashion—and only after Iran verifies that it is not conducting any work on the nuclear weapons front.

Zarif, echoing previous comments, said the United States has promised an immediate termination of sanctions.

Not only did Iran call out the Obama administration for not being truthful, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released the following statement  about the 'framework'.

The Obama's administration's deal at any cost approach should concern Israel, especially since this administration helped negotiate on the side of IRAN
In his television interview, Mr Mottaghi also gave succour to western critics of the proposed nuclear deal, which has seen the White House pursue a more conciliatory line with Tehran than some of America’s European allies in the negotiating team, comprising the five permanent members of the UN security council and Germany
“The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal,” he said.
Should Israel really be concerned? Without an actual signed agreement in place, what are some of the realities? The NYTIMES reports the most important aspect of the deal.  Iran still gets a nuclear bomb.
The agreement calls for Tehran to slash its stockpile of nuclear materials and severely limit its enrichment activities, theoretically bringing the time it would take to produce a nuclear weapon to a year — a significant rollback from the current estimate of two to three months.
The details of the negotiations leaked indicate that Iran gets the sanctions lifted, gets to develop nuclear weapons and will dictate the terms of verification and inspections.  Inspections that are only as rigorous as the U.N Security Council requires.  This leaves Russia and China, Iran's allies, in control of the process as reported in Politico.
We don’t yet know all the details of the nuclear agreement that Iran, the United States and five other world powers announced Thursday they are aiming to complete by June 30. What we do know is that any acceptable final deal will depend on a strong weapons inspection element. In his remarks in the Rose Garden, President Obama declared Tehran had agreed to precisely that. “If Iran cheats, the world will know,” he said. 
Yet weapons inspectors can be no tougher than the body that empowers them—in this instance the UN Security Council. And herein lies the agreement’s fundamental weakness—and perhaps its fatal flaw. Do we really want to depend on Vladimir Putin? Because Russia will be able to decide what to enforce in any deal—and what not to.
The U.N as an organization has failed in all its missions and mandates, by design. Yet this administration is so desperate for any kind of foreign policy victory, it is willing to throw any, if not all of its allies under the bus, namely Israel.  This administration and the left loathes Israel and has long worked to sabotage and destroy it. From supporting the BDS movement, to direct interference in Israel's elections. the Obama administration and the left have appeased Iran to aid in their attacks on Israel. From Occupy Wall Street to the current Commander in Chief, Barack Obama, capitulations to and the appeasing of Iran, along with the open hostilities toward Israel and its leader have left many Americans puzzled and concerned.  This administration has allowed Iran and ISIS to divide and devour the middle east and it looks like Israel may be next.

This is the same administration that touted Iraq and Yemen as foreign policy successes.
