Iran Nuclear Deal: April, 2015

4/17/2015 Together, Iran's Supreme Leader and Congress May Just Kill Obama's Nuke Deal

What nuke deal? President Obama does not have a nuke deal.

White House Fact Sheet:
     U.S. and E.U. nuclear-related sanctions will be suspended after the IAEA has verified that Iran has taken all of its key nuclear-related steps.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei:
     "We will not sign any deal unless all sanctions are lifted on the same day ..."
     "... this statement, which they called a 'fact sheet', was wrong on most of the issues."
     "US fact sheet showing terms that were at variance with the Iranian view of the agreement showed "devilish" US intentions."

In reviewing the White House and the Iranian fact sheets it appears both sides agree the sky is blue. Problem is, one views blue as a dark royal blue. The other as a light baby blue. That's about as close to "agreement" as the two sides have come.

How about this? Forget the fact sheets. Publish the "deal" in its entirety with the signatures of all parties. This should provide full transparency, eliminating the "yes it does, no it doesn't" sales pitches we are getting from all sides. Or is this another House Minority Leader Pelosi "We have to pass the deal so we can see what's in it"?
