Because of this deal we will for the first time be in a position to verify all of these commitments. That means this deal is not built on trust. It is built on verification. Inspectors will have 24/7 access to Iran’s key nuclear facilities.
However, that isn’t true at all. Inspectors won’t have 24/7 access.
… Negotiators failed to meet the standard of achieving “anytime, anywhere” access that several members of the United States Congress had demanded as a part of any nuclear deal. Instead, in the event Iran objects to an IAEA request for access to a specific site, a “clock” will begin that grants the two sides 14 days to negotiate.
If that period expires without any resolution reached directly between Iran and the IAEA, the Joint Commission would have seven days to advise them on a way forward. Iran would then have three days to comply with the commission’s final advice, bringing the total time on the clock to 24 days.
The media is out and about praising this deal as ‘Historic‘, ‘Landmark‘, etc. Will anyone in the media call the president out for this lie? You can be damn well sure that if there was a Republican in the White House, the press would have an orgasm over this.
Sadly though, thanks to Senator Bob Corker, the Republicans in the U.S. Senate have little chance at stopping this deal.
