Secretar of State Kerry: “We have created the time and the space in order to be able to pursue an agreement that would finish the work that President Obama began on his first day in office…blah, blah, blah…”

I can hardly stand to listen to this.

On Saturday, Kerry — and by extension, our president — shook hands with the leader of the country near the top of the list of the world’s human rights abusers. And Kerry waxed eloquent about “mutual respect.” During the press conference the reporter from Bloomberg News cheerily said, “Congratulations to you and your team.”

Without getting too deeply into the weeds of the deal with Iran, it appears that we are going to hand over billions of dollars to Iran — removing sanctions — because Iran pinky-promised to stop making nukes. Did anyone check to see if Hassan Rouhani had his fingers crossed when he shook hands with Kerry and agreed to “provide the most far-reaching insight and view of Iran’s nuclear program that the international community has ever had.” Fox New’s Judith Miller chirped on Saturday about how wonderful it is that Iran has finally come to the table, saying, “I’m stunned that we got this much!”

President Obama spoke like a man who really, truly believes that the the Iranians are going to let his inspectors come in and snoop around at will, like Michelle ferreting out hamburgers and nachos from the White House pantry.

The problem is that  Iran does not have a stellar track record on the “far-reaching insight” front.

The International reported last week:

A U.N. report published in late October has criticized Iran’s recent human rights record. Compiled by Ahmed Shaheed, the U.N.’s Special Rapporteur for human rights in the Islamic Republic, the report focuses on executions and violations of freedom of expression.

The article notes that the UN’s Special Rapporteur had to rely on interviews submitted by human rights groups because “Shaheed has not been allowed to visit Iran since his appointment as Special Rapporteur.

Let that sink in for a moment.

If Iran has barred a UN human rights inspector from having access to the country, what makes anyone think nuclear inspectors will fare any better? It’s dangerously farcical.

To the ABEDINI FAMILY: Congress...the president....Lurch? No, no, no....scrape up all the money you can find from family, friends, donations and try to get at least $1 million - then find Valerie Jarrett, THEN you'll have a legitimate shot at having your loved one freed...VJ is the conduit to Iran and the Mad Persian Mullahs. No, the money is not for ransom, that's HER FEE for doing business - such as trying to free a religiously persecuted American citizen from a foreign terrorist nation-state. In Dear Leader's regime, the words "duty-honor-country" are as foreign and strange as "straight-white-male"... there's a price for everything with these corrupt radicals! God bless you and I sincerely pray for your husband's safe and swift return.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,,,,,WWW.Rush64.COM

There isn't much to say in addition to the article.
Why are we even contemplating giving Iran money?
Why, if we do give them money, don't we attach more demands to this money?

As it is, it looks as we are vassals paying our suzerain tribute.

I feel for this pastor's family. I have friends in similar situations in that general area.

I wouldn't be surprised to know that Iran has a few phoney atomic development sites all ready for inspection and dismantling, and one or two hidden that will continue purifying atomic fuel. Or they've already got their bomb(s) and will take our money for awhile before making it known.
