U.S., others agreed ‘secret’ exemptions for Iran after nuclear deal: think tank

The United States and its negotiating partners agreed “in secret” to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year’s landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions, according to a think tank report published on Thursday.

The report, which was released by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, is based on information provided by several officials of governments involved in the negotiations. The group’s president David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector and co-author of the report, declined to identify the officials, and Reuters could not independently verify the report’s assertions.

“The exemptions or loopholes are happening in secret, and it appears that they favor Iran,” Albright said.

    There were so many claims that Iran was going to make a nuclear weapons and those lies have been trumpeted up since the late 1980’s. Much of the reason why people pay attention is because Israel is making those claims.

    Netanyahu even went in front of the US Congress and Senate in 2002 claiming that Iraq had WMDs and was getting weapons technology from Niger and that Iraq had massive stockpiles of weapons and all of these claims turned out to be false.

    All that happened in the end was that 1 million Iraqis died in the period when the oil-for-food program was going on and 500,000 Iraqis died to this point after 9/11.

    If people truly want no nuclear weapons, then stop Russia from building Iranian nuclear facilities, and ensure that Iran abides by the rules.

    This whole fearmongering, which is what it is and always has been, is just the same old same old fearmongering used by the US and their allies since the 1950’s with previous invasions and previous wars. It is about selling the agenda, having some kind of sanctions on for a war prelude, and then manipulating the American people. This song and dance has been used countless times by the United States and her allies. I think there should be an international system of real mechanisms to stop war before they happen like mediation, diplomacy and the rule of law and big powers having MAD, and then the wars will slowly decrease.

      Who said we want no nukes? Idiot does not begin to describe you but Jew hating asshole does.

        You probably want nukes used against Iran when Persians protected the Jews throughout history meaning before common era.

        The fact is Netanyahu represents the government, and I said nothing against Jews in general because Netanyahu did lie along with the parade of others to get Iraq started.

        How is pointing out the truth regarding pro-war politics being anti-Semitic? That is showing events and laying out what needs to change.

        We need alternatives to the systems in place.
