Biden ran on a promise to restore the hoax nuclear deal with Iran. The Shiite Islamic terror state responded, “Not so fast.”
Telling terrorists that you want a deal is dumb. It allows them to set the terms of negotiations and whether it’s in Israel, Afghanistan, or Iran, it always backfires badly. So instead of just being able to “restore the deal,” Iran has dragged out the process.
Biden has arranged with other countries, like South Korea, to funnel cash as sanctions relief to the terrorists, but he can’t get the overall deal done. So his administration is proposing sanctions relief in exchange for an “interim freeze” that would be even more worthless than the previous deal.
National security adviser Jake Sullivan raised with his Israeli counterpart the idea of an interim agreement with Iran to buy more time for nuclear negotiations, three Israeli and U.S. sources tell me.
Why it matters: The idea is only preliminary, and the Biden administration continues to insist that the full 2015 nuclear deal be restored. But with nuclear talks set to resume in Vienna on Nov. 29, it provides a window into at least some of the thinking inside the administration.
The thinking here is pretty clear.
