John Kerry says Deal with Iran is “Not Legally Binding”! So the Senate Republicans Were Right?


Surprise, surprise. Today, we have not one, but two videos confirming every word Senator Tom Cotton and his Republican Senate colleagues said just a couple of days ago. What’s interesting is where the confirmation is coming from… it’s from the Obama administration itself!

On Wednesday Secretary of State John Kerry was speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when he openly admitted that the Obama administration knew that any deal they concluded with Iran wouldn’t technically be “legal” or “binding.”

“We’ve been clear from the beginning we’re not negotiating a legally binding plan. We’re negotiating a plan that will have a capacity for enforcement. We don’t even have diplomatic relations with Iran right now.”

 

 

Kerry is not the only Obama administration official to say this. Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said basically the same thing when explaining that the deal being brokered between the USA and Iran is more accurately a deal between President Obama and the Ayatollah Khamenei, and once one of them has died, lost power, or moved on… the deal will have no reason to continue.

 

 

 

 

All of this then begs the question… why was the Obama administration so upset with Republicans for sending a letter to Iran that essentially said what the administration was willing to admit twice on Wednesday?

Could it be that the Obama administration was simply upset for being called out for wasting time and money in a conversation with Iran that is essentially meaningless? President Obama hopes that this deal with Iran might be his second term’s Obamacare, or maybe, more accurately, the foreign policy legacy that will be the hallmark of his administration’s foreign policy. But it won’t be “legacy” material if the Republicans prove it was just a cheap game of politics and that the legacy itself is tainted by meaninglessness.

So team Obama pitched a fit, hoping beyond hope that everyone else wouldn’t notice how empty the Iran deal really was turning out to be.
