    Default Iran

    The legislation, which will formally be filed early next week, comes in response to the Obama administration’s decision to grant Iran access to another $2.8 billion in currently frozen cash assets in exchange for agreeing to stay in nuclear negotiations through November.
    Yeah, giving them more money should convince them to continue negotiating ... and stonewalling.

    As with the previous release of $4.2 billion to Tehran over the past several months, the money comes with no strings attached, meaning that Iran could potentially use the cash to finance its terror operations, which includes Hamas, Hezbollah, and other rogue activities.

    Yup, this went well.
    NYT: “A yearlong effort to reach an enduring accord with Iran to dismantle large parts of its nuclear infrastructure fell short on Monday, forcing the United States and its allies to declare a seven-month extension…The failure to agree even on the framework for a comprehensive deal, after extended high-level diplomacy over an issue that was arguably President Obama’s top foreign policy priority, had to be a disappointment for the administration.”

    [AP: “Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday said, ‘On the nuclear issue, the United States and European colonialist countries gathered and applied their entire efforts to bring the Islamic Republic to its knees but they could not and they will not,’ Khamenei’s website reported.”]
    Does this latter statement give us an idea of how much difference a 7-mo extension will make? It would appear that they are not there to negotiate; they are there to stonewall & buy time for their nuclear program.

    Be aware that this 'time extension' by Kerry and Obama makes Iran very close to having a nuclear weapon that can be delivered. Israel cannot allow that to happen, I expect to see a major attack come from Israel to try and stop or set back the Iranian nuclear program. This could get ugly fast!

    Former Obama official Jeremy Bash spoke on CNBC regarding the recent failed talks with Iran, and how Iran came out the winner with a deadline extension.
    Bash served as Leon Panetta’s chief of staff both when Panetta was Secretary of Defense and when he was Director of the CIA. He said Ayatollah Khamenei achieved various strategic goals with the extension, particularly the freedom to continue its development of nuclear weapons.
    “He wanted to maintain the capability of having nuclear weapons,” Bash said. “That’s dangerous, because for the next seven months Iran here will be able to amass additional know-how and new technology while the community continues to negotiate with Iran.”
    Leaders on the Hill and at the Pentagon are now concerned that Iran will take advantage of the situation and benefit economically when large assets become unfrozen.
    “So they’re continuing to see the benefits of being in this negotiation,” Bash said. “All the while, they are not making additional concessions.”
    The Iranian perspective on this
    Top Iranian leaders have been celebrating a recently inked extension in nuclear negotiations with the West, with leading military figures and politicians saying that the deal is a sign that the “Americans have very clearly surrendered to Iran’s might,” according to regional reports. As negotiations in Vienna break up so that leaders from all sides can return to their countries for further deliberations, the Iranians have already begun mocking the West and insisting that the country’s nuclear rights will soon be recognized.
    With a seven-month extension in talks—originally scheduled to expire on Monday—set to start in early December, nuclear experts are predicting that Iran will continue its most controversial nuclear work and likely have enough enriched fuel for a bomb by June 2015.
    The “Americans have very clearly surrendered to Iran’s might, and this is obvious in their behavior in the region and in the negotiations, and the enemies’ reservations vis-a-vis Iran are completely felt,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Iranian Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was quoted as saying late Monday following the announcement of an extension in talks.
    Seems that Kerry as a negotiator worked as well as the Russian Reset Button.
