On President Obama and the Iran Deal
I'm not a fan of Obama. I'm not a supporter of Obama. But on this particular issue, yes, he's Obama the great. The real fact of the matter here is that Iran's nuclear program NEVER was a weapons program. a) The vast, Vast, VAST, VAST percentage of the uranium that Iran has been enriching is in the 3 to 4% range. b) The tiny amount of uranium that they've been enriching at 20% has always been earmarked for medical technology. c) The nuclear waste that they've been producing is very polluted and therefore useless in terms of weapons production. And d) (and most importantly) our own intelligence agencies have unanimously concluded over and over and over again that Iran is NOT building a nuclear weapon. I mean, I know that we tend to take our marching orders from the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Tel Aviv, etc. but what Obama has essentially done here is take a nonthreatening program and made it even more transparent. Give the dude some credit, for Christ.
