Even UN Says Iran Not Complying With Obama Nuclear Weapons Deal

Our friend Omri Ceren, writing for The Israel Project, has just alerted us to a recent statement from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding their inability to verify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear weapons deal Obama gave to the Islamic Republic.

The U.N. nuclear watchdog’s chief urged the six major powers behind the agreement to lift sanctions on Iran to clarify a part of the agreement dealing with technology that could be used to develop an atom bomb, an area Nikki HaleyRussia said the agency should leave alone.

The Reuters report noted the 2015 pact between six major powers and Iran restricts its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions against the Islamic Republic. Compliance with those curbs is being verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, has infuriated the mullahs in charge of the Islamic Republic of Iran by saying the IAEA should widen its inspections to include military sites, diplomats say Russia has been trying to restrict the agency’s role by arguing it has no authority to police a broadly worded section of the deal.

That section bans "activities which could contribute to the development of a nuclear explosive device". It lists examples such as using computer models that simulate a nuclear bomb, or designing multi-point, explosive detonation systems.

However, in a stunning example of why Obama’s nuclear weapons deal was tantamount to treason against the United States, unlike many other parts of the deal, the provision, known as Section T, makes no mention of the IAEA or specifics of how it will be verified.

Just in case that wasn’t clear – what the deal says is there’s no specific verification procedure of the section of the treaty that actually prohibits Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

Russia says that means the IAEA has no authority over it. Western powers and the IAEA disagree.

"Our tools are limited," Amano told Reuters when asked if his agency had the means to verify Section T.

"In other sections, for example, Iran has committed to submit declarations, place their activities under safeguards or ensure access by us. But in Section T I don’t see any (such commitment)."

Now, here’s the key part in Ceren’s analysis to which we want to alert you:

The policy community has known about this failure for months: in August nuclear experts from FDD* and ISIS* published a report that concluded "it is likely that some of the conditions in Section T are not currently being met and may in fact be violated by Iran."

*FDD is the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy and in this case ISIS is the Institute of Science and International Security, also known on Twitter as @TheGoodISIS.

Ceren says the IAEA has not been able to verify Iran is implementing Section T because the relevant activities would be occurring on military sites and Iran has barred the IAEA from inspecting those sites.

Now here’s another key point: IAEA officials say they won't even ask for access because they know Iran would say no and it would give the Trump administration an "excuse" to walk away from the deal.

The anti-constitutional Corker-Cardin legislation requires the President to certify "Iran is transparently, verifiably, and fully implementing the agreement.” One part of the agreement - Annex 1, Section T - prohibits Iran from conducting certain "activities which could contribute to the design and development of a nuclear explosive device.” This latest statement makes it clear that neither the IAEA nor the President can make that certification.

Our friend Clare Lopez at the Center for Security Policy has written a definitive paper on why President Trump must not recertify Iran’s compliance with the Obama nuclear weapons deal. We agree with Clare Lopez’s conclusions and take them one step further – the United States should withdraw completely from the Obama – Iran nuclear weapons deal.

As we explained in our articles, Conservative National Security Experts Urge President Trump to Withdraw From Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran, President Trump’s UN Speech vs. Action On Iran And North Korea and If North Korea Has Miniature Nukes, So Does Iran,  the inevitable result of continuing to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear weapons deal, and allowing their continued nuclear weapons and missile development cooperation, is an anti-American world dominated by two nuclear-armed rogue states; North Korea and Iran.

The next re-certification date is October 15, 2017. We urge our CHQ readers and friends to contact the White House through this link. Tell President Trump that he must not bow to pressure to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear weapons deal and that it is time to withdraw from the Obamabomb deal completely and prepare every available option to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Iran nuclear agrement.

President Trump should have tossed out the Iranian Nuclear deal on day one.
There is no place in the Constitution of the United States that allows any President the power or authority to negotiate this kind of agreement without it being a Treaty.
This agreement binds the United States to certain requirements that president obama had no power or authority to do. Congress should have first notified Iran and then the United Nations that they did not vote to accept this agreement then impeach and remove obama from office.
