Obama Outed As Two-Faced By "Negotiating Partner" Iran
November 17, 2014
November 13, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – It's no longer news - since it was revealed about a week ago - that President Obama has been engaged in a secret letter writing campaign between himself and Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. This is occurring as the deadline approaches on the public nuke negotiations between Tehran and the so-called P5+1 nations.
In the communication, Obama also suggested other areas in which the U.S. and Iran can "cooperate," such as the threat posed by ISIS. The latter despite the fact that ISIS, a revolutionary Sunni jihadist group, currently represents a more serious threat to Iran than it does the United States, though it certainly has America in the crosshairs of its long-term goals.
How lessening the pressure on Iran's weapons of mass destruction program while simultaneously removing a serious military threat across its border improves our diplomatic leverage against the rogue nation is difficult to comprehend.
It's generally felt that Obama's approach to the talks has been weak and that the measures suggested will, at best only temporarily slow down, Iran's relentless push to develop nuclear weapons. Indeed, many experts examining the process believe that Team O's negotiating posture and proposals are alarmingly weak, designed more for purposes of public consumption rather than to deal head-on with the grave threat a nuclear Iran would present.
While the WH concentrates on creating positive press in an area which it has been alarmingly weak, Iran's leaders have stepped up its campaign of Jew-hatred, once again threatening Israel with annihilation.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports:
Aside from the widely recognized weakness of this administration's proposals to "contain" Iran there has been another factor, one which further weakens his expressed goals.
Mr. Obama, having had no experience in diplomacy before his historic 2008 election, is hopelessly naïve when it comes to dealing with the genuine bad guys of the world. He seems to have no real understanding of what Donald Trump calls the art of the deal, what is more formally known as game theory.
Exhibit "A" here is Obama's expectation that his assumed private communication with the Ayatolocracy, would remain that way. Instead Iran, as any experienced negotiator would expect, has outed the president, humiliating in the eyes of world leaders including our erstwhile allies.
Published yesterday by one of Iran's state media outlets, Fars, Iran's Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani attacked the United States over alleged duplicity, taking a hard-line publicly, but adopting a much more conciliatory tone in what Obama thought would remain privileged communication.
As the nuke talks move towards conclusion, Iran's revelation have further weakened whatever leverage the United States might have had to pressure the Islamic dictatorship to cease its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
On a more personal level, the disclosure reveals Obama as a vainglorious man, who is so convinced of his ability – absent any demonstrable proof thereof - that he stubbornly engages in behavior regarding the most serious challenges facing America which even a junior foreign service officer would laugh off as being dangerously simple minded.
