Obama’s blindness

Obama’s blindness

President Obama is so wrong to see Iran, which yells “Death to America” on a regular basis, as a potential ally rather than what it is, a top source of Mideast unrest. I believe our president, in his blind desire to create a legacy deal with an Iran which cannot be trusted, is completely dishonoring Israel as well as our other allies in the Middle East, and even our own country.

Iran has already stated it will allow no inspections on military facilities as well as not allowing the IAEA inspectors from the UN to speak to military scientists. Gaining access to military sites is necessary as a verification system of Iran’s attempts to create nuclear weapons.

Contrary to the Obama administration’s claims that Iran has frozen its nuclear program, international inspectors discovered recently that the Islamic Republic’s stockpile of nuclear fuel has increased by about 20 percent over the course of the last 18 months according to The New York Times.

If Iran maintains a stockpile of low enriched uranium or oxidized uranium (the latter can be reversed in a matter of a few weeks), it would have permanent access to multiple bombs-worth of enriched uranium as it has sped up the pace of the enrichment.
