Remember those “secret side deals” no one was supposed to know anything about? According to a document seen by the Associated Press, a secret UN agreement will allow Iran to use its own experts to inspect an Iranian site that has allegedly been used to develop nuclear arms.
Calling it an “unusual arrangement,” the AP exclusive goes on to note that “the revelation is sure to roil American and Israeli critics of the main Iran deal signed by the U.S., Iran and five world powers in July.”
Those critics have complained that the deal is built on trust of the Iranians, a claim the U.S. has denied.
The investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the International Atomic Energy Agency is linked to a broader probe of allegations that Iran has worked on atomic weapons. That investigation is part of the overarching nuclear deal.

Meanwhile, via Ace of Spades HQ: Senators Rubio and Kirk charged today that Obama has been sending secret letters to foreign governments promising that no action will be taken against them if they do business with Iran.
Two leading U.S. senators are calling on the Obama administration to release secret letters to foreign governments assuring them that they will not be legally penalized for doing business with the Iranian government, according to a copy of a letter sent Wednesday to the State Department and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon…..
The Obama administration is purportedly promising the foreign governments that if Iran violates the parameters of a recently inked nuclear accord, European companies will not be penalized, according to the secret letters.
Ace sums it up quite nicely: “Obama is not hiding secrets from foreign enemies, but domestic enemies — American voters and their representatives in Congress.”
