Report: U.S. Gives In On Iran Inspections

Israeli news sources report that the U.S. and its negotiating partners have given in to Iran’s insistence that it will not allow inspections of its nuclear weapons facilities:

The P5+1 countries led by the United States under Barack Obama have caved in to Iranian demands and will not insist on inspections of nuclear installations as part of a deal on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Channel 1 reported Sunday.

Of course they have. Iran has consistently declared that it will not allow inspections, and Barack Obama wants a deal at any cost, either because he actually wants to help Iran to obtain nuclear weapons–circumstantial evidence supports that conclusion–or because he is so desperate for some kind of foreign affairs legacy that he is willing to go along with anything. From the beginning of this process, Iran’s government has issued more truthful updates on the status of the negotiations than has our own. In some parallel universe, this would be an embarrassment to an American administration.

Was there ever any doubt? I don’t think so. More important, neither did the Iranians. They knew they could dictate the terms of the agreement because they were dealing with Barack Obama, and they have done so. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., we are busy posting rainbows on our Facebook pages. It is hard to escape the conclusion that we deserve what we are going to get.

UPDATE: A reader writes:

It means they already have nukes, i.e., sufficient highly enriched uranium for, at a minimum, 1 – 5 Hiroshima type bombs. Therefore, there is nothing Obama can do: once the kooks have nukes it’s game over; we can never directly attack them without huge risk. See Korea, North.

To be fair to Obama, he didn’t just let it happen, he wanted it to happen, since an alliance with the mullahs was his one grand foreign policy vision.
