RELEASE THEM: Obama/Iran Nuke Deal Secrets Are NOT Classified, Just Kept From You
The leaders of the Islamic Republic are frightened. They face an American national security team that knows a lot about them, and, unlike the Obama administration, strongly dislikes them.
General Michael Flynn’s book was an underground hit in Farsi, and the quadrumvirate of Pompeo, Mattis, McMaster, and Kelly show no signs of wanting to pursue the shameful strategic alliance that Obama forged with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. On the contrary, all four stress Iran’s role as chief sponsor of international terror. All four know the ayatollahs are deadly serious when they lead chants of “Death to America.”
The Iranian leaders knew that they could get away with murder as long as Obama was in charge, and that Obama’s administration would protect large parts of the agreements between the two countries. Yet of late, we have heard Iranian officials warning us not to make public the secret elements of the nuclear “deal.” Listen to the words of Adam Kredo:
Senior Iranian officials are warning the Trump administration about disclosing secret agreements related to the nuclear deal that have long been hidden from the public by the Obama administration, according to recent comments that prompted pushback from senior sources on Capitol Hill.
Iran's warning comes on the heels of Kredo’s Washington Free Beacon report disclosing that former national security adviser Flynn had been pushed out of office partly due to his intention to release these sensitive documents to the American public.
I dare say you didn’t know there were many secret parts to the “deal,” did you?
It appears we’ve keeping Iranian secrets for them. I’m told that there are no less than seventeen of them (note to FBI: I don’t have clearances). And the more we learn about them, the more bizarre the story becomes: it turns out that the documents in question are secret, but not classified. And why would that be?
Here’s more light in this darkness from Kredo:
Secret side deals related to the nuclear agreement remain unclassified but have been stashed in a secure location on Capitol Hill, making it difficult for staffers and lawmakers to view them. Individuals seeking to view these documents must have security clearance and are barred from taking notes or speaking about what they see.
Those secrecy rules and regs don’t parse too well, in my opinion. It seems like an arrangement for material that, back when I worked at the White House on national security matters, we used to call “really secret,” since classified information so often leaked. Yes, the leaking is an old story, as are the messenger boys (WaPo, NYT) for the leakers (high concentration of intel people).
We are entitled to ask for the release of the secret arrangements with Iran. If the citizens don’t know what Obama/Kerry/Rhodes/Jarrett agreed to, then the whole “debate” over what Trump should do with regard to Iran is essentially meaningless.
