I don’t know – how does he think he can get away with saying something that simply isn’t true?
I guess because they get away with such things all the time.
The administration keep claiming it wasn’t trying to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program. But officials, including President Obama, repeatedly said and suggested that’s exactly what they wanted.
Here’s some video contrasting Secretary of State John Kerry during his Senate testimony today with – Secretary of State John Kerry.
Oh, and here’s Obama during his debate with Mitt Romney:
The work that we’ve done with respect to sanctions now offers Iran a choice. They can take the diplomatic route and end their nuclear program or they will have to face a united world and a United States president, me, who said we’re not going to take any options off the table.
Uh, if he meant nuclear weapons program, he would have said it.
Here’s some more great video from Kerry’s testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in which Sen. Bob Menenedez, D-N.J., reminds him that the sanctions the White House constantly touts as having forced Iran to cry uncle were in reality opposed by the White House.
Actually, of course, if you take a look at the deal, Iran never really cried “uncle.” Maybe “cousin.”
