Jaw dropping stupidity? - White House: Iran's positive talk due to sanctionsTopics: Iran, Political News and commentaries
USA Today reports that a top national security adviser to President Obama apparently believes that newly installed Iranian President Hasan Rouhani's efforts to open diplomatic channels with the United States are due in large part to sanctions the Obama administration has levied against Tehran over its nuclear program.
Please tell me that the Obama administration doesn't actually believe that Iran's efforts to "open diplomatic channels" has anything to do with sanctions (because it absolutely doesn't) or that Iran has even the remotest intention of opening diplomatic channels with the U.S. for any reason other than to delay, delay, delay ... while they continue to buy time to complete the development of their nuclear weapons program ... as they have been doing for years!
Is the Obama administration somehow unaware of Iran's long history of using protracted negotiations as a stalling tactic to buy time as they continue to race toward completing the development of nuclear weapons, or does Obama still actually believe that he can do what the United States and its international partners haven't been able to accomplish in over a decade simply because he is - Barack Obama?
Sadly, we all know the answer to the latter ... in other words we're so so screwed!
