obPresident Barack Obama heralded a framework nuclear understanding with Iran as an “historic” agreement that could pave the way for a final deal that would leave the U.S., its allies and the world safer.

Speaking from the White House Rose Garden Thursday afternoon, Obama said the agreement “is a good deal, a deal that meets our core objectives.” He said verification mechanisms built into the framework agreed to in Switzerland hours earlier would ensure that “if Iran cheats, the world with know it.”

Obama has invested significant political capital in the nuclear negotiations. The talks have strained the U.S. relationship with Israel, which sees Tehran as an existential threat, and deepened tensions with Congress.

One of Obama’s toughest challenges will be convincing lawmakers to hold off on legislation that would authorize new sanctions on Iran. He said his administration would fully brief Congress on the diplomatic efforts, which he called “our best option by far.”

  1. So the TEN YEAR LIMIT is apparently in the agreement. That after 10 years the sanctions would no longer be used and Iran can renew its nuclear weapons program as per agreement. Apparently European countries and our Obama would rather have IRAN as an Ally fighting ISIS which they view as enemy number 1 right now then deal with the fact that Iran supports Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah and its leaders regularly call for Death To America and Death to Israel. And the threat of this leading to Nuclear Proliferation in the Middle East in anticipation of an eventual Nuclear Shiite Iran.

  2. Just curious!
    Did he inform Boehner that it was being announced!??
    Also, was spelled out if they’re Earth years and not from some other planet or even dog years?

  3. 1. Peace in our time

    2. Unlike Chamberlain who didn’t even get peace for the rest of his term, it is fairly certain the Obama will be retired when this blows up.

    3. He’s probably afraid to submit the deal to the Senate as a treaty, so from an American perspective it will be a policy statement valid only until Jan. 20, 2017, and as the Iranians know this, they will see any concessions they made as expiring at the same time.

  4. 80%+ of American Jews, Obama’s useful idiots, may not say: We didn’t spill this blood, because this agreement leads to bloodshed, Jewish and non-Jewish.

  5. Everybody knows the joke: “How can you tell if a politician is lying,” but while that is generally true, you can see evidence that Obama is lying without knowing what he is saying.

    The body language gives it away. eple who tel the truth usually look straight ahead at the people they are speaking with.

    The classic sign of a liar is looking down and away generally to their right.

    Another sign is his tight lips, just like Bill Clinton.

    This is not the picture of someone who just achieved a major success, as he wants everyone to believe.
