In July 2012, [then-Secretary of State] Clinton’s closest foreign-policy aide, Jake Sullivan, met in secret with Iranian diplomats in Oman, but made no progress in ending the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program. In a string of high-level meetings here over the next six months, the Secretary of State and White House concluded that they might have to let Iran continue to enrich uranium at small levels, if the diplomacy had any hope of succeeding.
The beginning of this administration’s decision to let Iran develop nuclear weapons behind the fig leaf of the JCPA.
Her diplomatic legacy, and President Barack Obama’s diplomatic legacy, are more important than the safety of Israel. More so than the safety of the United States, too, since the same fig leaf fundamentally removes barriers to Iran’s parallel intercontinental ballistic missile development program.
Remember this in 18 months. Remember this even if Senator Bernie Sanders (I, VT) is the Democrats’ nominee for the Presidency: these are Democrats who’ve perpetrated this. Remember this even if Vice President Joe Biden is the Democrats’ nominee: as the number two guy in Obama’s White House, he’s in this travesty up to his neck.
