Remember the bomb diagram that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used in his 2012 United Nations General Assembly speech warning about Iran’s progress on its nuclear program?
The White House, which is far from done hitting at Netanyahu since his resounding election victory, released this image in its lobbying effort for the framework agreement reached in Switzerland:

It’s part of a White House page arguing that the deal it forged “will verifiably prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and ensure that Iran’s nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful going forward.”
Netanyahu said in a statement today, “Israel shares the view that upon the expiry of the nuclear agreement with Iran the latter’s breakout time to achieve nuclear weapons will be zero. This will be the inevitable result of the automatic lifting of the restrictions, which would enable Iran to achieve an industrial-grade production capability.”
