The Capitulator

David Rutz summarizes an article written by Bret Stephens in the Wall Street Journal summing up the serial apologist's series of capitulations to Iran.
Obama made repeated assertions during a December 2013 forum with Haim Saban about what Iran clearly did not need to have a “peaceful nuclear program.”
“We know they don’t need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordo in order to have a peaceful nuclear program,” Obama said. “They certainly don’t need a heavy-water reactor at Arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. They don’t need some of the advanced centrifuges that they currently possess in order to have a limited, peaceful nuclear program.”
Stephens writes:
Hardly more than a year later, on the eve of what might be deal-day, here is where those promises stand:
Fordo: “The United States is considering letting Tehran run hundreds of centrifuges at a once-secret, fortified underground bunker in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites.”—Associated Press, March 26.
Arak: “Today, the six powers negotiating with Iran . . . want the reactor at Arak, still under construction, reconfigured to produce less plutonium, the other bomb fuel.”—The New York Times, March 7.
Advanced centrifuges: “Iran is building about 3,000 advanced uranium-enrichment centrifuges, the Iranian news media reported Sunday, a development likely to add to Western concerns about Tehran’s disputed nuclear program.”—Reuters, March 3.
Obama also spoke about verification at that forum, saying of any nuclear deal, “We can envision a comprehensive agreement that involves extraordinary constraints and verification mechanisms and intrusive inspections.”
But on March 24, the Associated Press reported “an Iranian official rebuked the chief of the U.N. atomic agency for demanding snap inspections of Iran’s nuclear sites, saying the request hindered efforts to reach an agreement with world powers.”
Obama’s promised over and over, even in State of the Union addresses, that his goal was to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Now, even members of his own party acknowledge what they’re negotiating for is to extend Iran’s nuclear break-out time to one year.
“The clock is ticking,” Obama said sternly during his foreign policy presidential debate with Mitt Romney. “We’re not going to allow Iran to perpetually engage in negotiations that lead nowhere.”
In addition to being a serial apologist and capitulator, Obama is also a serial liar. If you voted for him, shame on you.
