Charles Krauthammer made his usual appearance on the Special Report All-Star Panel last night to discuss the deal concerning Iran’s nuclear program. He pulled no punches in his criticism of the agreement.
“It’s really hard to watch the President and the Secretary of State and not think how they cannot be embarrassed by this deal,” he said.
Krauthammer went on to say that the U.N. Security Council, on no less than six occasions, has passed resolutions stating that Iran stop all enrichment otherwise there would be no change in the sanctions. That means that China and Russia, both countries on the Security Council, agreed to stick with sanctions against the regime.
But now, he said, the U.S. has basically capitulated on the issue of sanctions and granted Iran permission to continue with enrichment.
“What do we get in return?” Krauthammer asked. “I just heard the Secretary of State say we’re going to get a destruction of the 20% uranium. That is simply untrue. What’s going to happen is the 20% enriched uranium is going to be turned into an oxide so it’s inoperable. That process is completely chemically reversible which means Iran holds on to its 20% uranium and can turn it into active stuff any time it wants. This is a shame from beginning to end. It’s the worst deal since Munich.”
