Hillary Clinton on Iran Deal Withdrawal: “Our Credibility is Shot”

Actually, no.

Hillary Clinton complained Wednesday that nobody’s going to trust the United States anymore now that President Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.

First of all, please, shut up. You were picked to be secretary of state without having an ounce of foreign policy or negotiating experience, and it showed, much to our detriment.

And go away. Your credibility is shot when you set up a secret email server, dropped classified information on it, and deleted 3,000 emails.

Secondly, the credibility of the United States was shot when Barack Obama decided to violate the Constitution and negotiate a treaty without getting the approval of the United States Senate. In fact, not only did Obama not have the two-thirds majority needed to approve the agreement under the Constitution, there were about 58 senators who were against it.

So what was negotiated was not an agreement between the United States and Iran. It was an agreement between Barack Obama and Iran. And Barack Obama is no longer president.

Obama Disgruntled About Trump Decision to Scrap the Iran Deal

Here’s a short part of a very long Facebook lecture by Barack Obama on President Trump’s decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal:

There are few issues more important to the security of the United States than the potential spread of nuclear weapons, or the potential for even more destructive war in the Middle East. That’s why the United States negotiated the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the first place.

The reality is clear. The JCPOA is working – that is a view shared by our European allies, independent experts, and the current U.S. Secretary of Defense. The JCPOA is in America’s interest – it has significantly rolled back Iran’s nuclear program. And the JCPOA is a model for what diplomacy can accomplish – its inspections and verification regime is precisely what the United States should be working to put in place with North Korea. Indeed, at a time when we are all rooting for diplomacy with North Korea to succeed, walking away from the JCPOA risks losing a deal that accomplishes – with Iran – the very outcome that we are pursuing with the North Koreans.

That is why today’s announcement is so misguided. Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies, and an agreement that our country’s leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated. In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next. But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.

Debates in our country should be informed by facts, especially debates that have proven to be divisive. So it’s important to review several facts about the JCPOA.

And then he goes on and on some more with “facts.”

Actually, this is not what we are trying to do in North Korea. In North Korea, we are trying to completely denuclearize the country, not leave it with a program that it can begin developing again in a few years right up to the point where it can produce mass numbers of weapons.

Obama should stop whining. He went and signed a bad, unpopular treaty and then violated the Constitution by not submitting it for approval by the Senate. Instead, he turned the Constitution on its head by making the Senate have to vote to disapprove it, which it couldn’t.

Without Senate confirmation of the agreement, it can be simply overturned by his successor. Too bad, Obama.
