Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was fired today, although it was officially described as a resignation. His offense: he told the truth about ISIS, contrary to the Adminstration’s/ Obama’s “messaging that ISIS was the “Jayvee” of al Qaeda. 6 years in and one guy of the Regime tells the truth and is canned: Name the scandal, IRS, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, VA, Obamacare, et al – nothing but lies, obfuscation and deceit. The latest, but not the last, with 2 years to go, is the “negotiations” with Iran on their nuclear program. Today was to be the deadline of the previously extended year and a half circle jerk by John F. Kerry & Co, marching dutifully to Obama’s orders, while the Mullahs play them like fiddles, or fools, take your pick. End game: Iran cheats and lies and achieves nuclear weaponry, thereby setting off a regional nuclear race, as Saudi Arabia will not stand idly by. Don’t kid yourself: the Obama Regime matches the lies and deception stroke for stroke and We, the people are being lied to. The IAEA knows that without onsite verification, Iranian claims of “compliance” are vacuous. Bret Stephens in his WSJ column today, nails it:
because the administration lacks the political courage of its real convictions or the martial courage of its fake ones—we are wedded to this sham process of negotiation. “They pretend to pay us; we pretend to work,” went the old joke about labor in the Soviet Union. Just so with these talks. Iranians pretend not to cheat; we pretend not to notice. All that’s left to do is stand back and wait for something to happen.
Eventually, something will happen. Perhaps Iran will simply walk away from the talks, daring this feckless administration to act. Perhaps we will discover another undeclared Iranian nuclear facility, possibly not in Iran itself. Perhaps the Israelis really will act. Perhaps the Saudis will.
God, help us.
