The US-Iran Appeasement is Worse than it Looked

The incredible exploding deal.

The incredible exploding deal.

By now, most of the public knows the outline of the “deal” that a weak and desperate President Obama and Secretary Kerry reached with Iran’s ayatollahs.

  • The US gets to say a deal was reached;
  • The US and West lift sanctions on Iran (as does the UN, not that anyone but the West was complying with them;
  • A few UN inspectors will get escorted to specific Iranian Potemkin research sites; and,
  • Iran is free to continue its nuclear weapons development unhindered.

That was enough to make Neville Chamberlain look like freakin’ Otto von Bismarck compared to the gormless Americans. Netanyahu knows now how Beneš felt. But it turns out, the bad deal was even worse than that.

You have to go to the Times of Israel for the story because the American press are too busy fapping to their collections of campaign speeches. But along with the publicly-discernable bones of this bad deal, some of its secret flesh includes Get Out of Jail Free cards to a rogues’ gallery of Iranian terrorist-suppliers, nuclear-proliferators, blockade-runners, and arms procurers. Among the plutonium pimps cut loose from American crowbar motel:

  • Mojtaba Atarodi, arrested and awaiting trial for buying and smuggling nuclear-enrichment equipment. Atarodi was associated with the IRGC’s nuclear program.
  • Shahrzad Mir Gholikhan, convicted on three counts of weapons trafficking.
  • Amir Hossein Seirafi, convicted of trying to buy vacuum pumps for plutonium enrichment.
  • Nosratollah Tajik, arrested buying sensitive night-vision equipment.
The releases are all one way. This guy, Saeed Abedini, is in Rajai Shahr prison, and our politicians are cool with that.

Obama and Kerry have been very solicitous about the well-being of these Iranian plutonium profiteers, but have done nothing to secure the release of Americans held on trumped-up charges in Iran, including Saeed Abedini, Amir Hekmati, and Robert Levinson, all of whom are held by the IRGC.

Abedini’s wife, Nagmeh, called the President’s abandonment of her husband “disheartening and discouraging.” Her attorney, Jay Sekulow of the ACLJ, went a step further: he called it “despicable.”

What a confidence measure it would have been, if as part of the preconditions for the relief from any sanctions on the Iranian regime, that they would release not only Saeed Abedini but the other two Americans being held by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

I hold the President responsible for this.  I think what he did was despicable.  Not having his release as a precondition of this nuclear deal is outrageous.

The Obama administration’s deal with the mullahs included some humanitarian items: mostly, publicly revealed humanitarian aid to the world’s leading terrorism-exporiting state, and billions of dollars in cash — mostly Iranian money that’s been impounded, but some hundreds of millions gouged from American taxpayers. But the Iranians were not asked for any humanitarian actions in return. In fact, they weren’t asked for anything but non-binding “commitments” — empty promises, most of which they’ve already told their domestic media they’re breaking.

Bottom line: we’re paying them to keep these Americans locked up. While rewarding them for not stopping their nuclear program. So that a man can stand with a piece of paper and pronounce it, “Peace in our time.”

Hey, that’s always worked before, right?

    Does anyone really think that a gov’t that abandoned its people under fire in Benghazi is going to exert itself over a few unknown civilians who’ve been prisoner for a long time already? The Obama administration has entirely different considerations.

      How dare you are to use my name and give me the title of weapon trafficer! Remove my name from your False News otherwise I will take legal actions. SHAHRZAD MIRGHOLIKHAN

    …never mind.

    I was going to say something, then I remembered who the hordes of welfare recipients elected as their king.

    I can only hope when Iran ships us 50 kilotons or so of plutonium love, they send it in an ISO shipping container to Chicongo, Detroit, or Philadelphia.

    Fair is fair, if you’re going to properly feed the hand that bites you.
