This deal is getting worse all the time:

The United States is considering letting Tehran run hundreds of centrifuges at a once-secret, fortified underground bunker in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites, officials have told The Associated Press.

The trade-off would allow Iran to run several hundred of the devices at its Fordo facility, although the Iranians would not be allowed to do work that could lead to an atomic bomb and the site would be subject to international inspections, according to Western officials familiar with details of negotiations now underway. In return, Iran would be required to scale back the number of centrifuges it runs at its Natanz facility and accept other restrictions on nuclear-related work.

Let me see if I have this straight. We’re asking Iran to limit uranium enrichment at vulnerable above-ground facilities, and in exchange we’ll let them increase production deep inside hardened underground bunkers.

There might still be a few deniers out there, but for everyone else it’s impossible to conclude anything other than Obama wants Iran to possess nuclear weapons.

He wants it.
