Iran Accuses U.S. of Lying About New Nuke Agreement

Says White House misleading Congress, American people with fact sheet

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Just hours after the announcement of what the United States characterized as a historic agreement with Iran over its nuclear program, the country’s leading negotiator lashed out at the Obama administration for lying about the details of a tentative framework.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused the Obama administration of misleading the American people and Congress in a fact sheet it released following the culmination of negotiations with the Islamic Republic.

    In this case, I may have to side with Iran. Obama has been bullshitting his way through public life ever since he denied hearing Rev. Wright’s sermons.

    Two liars in a negotiation, which lie is more believable?

    • I’m bettin on Iran frankly.

        They have less reason to bullshit. remember Obama’s recent climate change treaty with China? it meant nothing just as this pointless and dangerous exercise will.

    As if it matters since Iran will never from the first second bother to take seriously anything the US or anyone else or their claims about what may or may not have been agreed to. This was all theater from day one. The agreement has been in place since mid 2012 and all any of this was about was how to spin new lucrative trade agreements with Iran in a way that won’t get the democratic governments voted out of office. Since Obama doesn’t have to worry about that he was more upfront.

    Obumbles has alienated most of the US traditional allies in favour of a theocratic dictatorship who now are rejecting him. Obama and Kerry will be remembered not only as the fathers of the coming conflict .but as hopeless amateurs whose bungling allowed the genii out of the bottle.
