Corker to Kerry: Dude, you got fleeced by the mullahs

posted at 12:01 pm on July 23, 2015 by Ed Morrissey

It all started off so well for Secretary of State John Kerry. At the beginning of his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the deal he crafted with Iran, Kerry got a hero’s welcome from a group of observers to the hearing. Granted, it was from the deep thinkers of Code Pink, but you gotta take what you can get, amirite?

Kerry told the committee that he could guarantee this deal would prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon during the term of the agreement, which prompted chair Bob Corker (R-TN) to reply, “You’ve been fleeced“:

The Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee tells Kerry point-blank that “you’ve been fleeced” by the Iranians in the recently completed nuclear agreement.

Kerry was greeted with applause from anti-war demonstrators as a handful of members from CodePink rose in the hearing room. But the mood turned critical immediately as Sen. Bob Corker, who heads the panel, gaveled the hearing to order.

Corker wasn’t alone with that sentiment:

Watch the video carefully at the beginning to see Kerry’s reaction to Corker’s remarks. Corker takes a shot at Kerry by noting how the Secretary of State has repeatedly shared the “tremendous warmth” that he has developed for his Iranian negotiating partners. Perhaps that’s part of why Corker pronounces himself depressed by this deal:

Corker tells Kerry he’s “fairly depressed” after listening to the secretary answer lawmakers’ questions Wednesday about the agreement in a classified briefing.

Corker’s blues come from a more substantive problem (although probably not from Corker’s role in providing the Obama administration some political cover with the reversed disapproval process). Experts on nuclear monitoring are not impressed with the verification claims coming from Kerry and Barack Obama. The 24-day gap for suspicious undeclared facilities is inadequate, assuming Iran cooperates with it in the first place, the New York Times reported today:

Olli Heinonen, a former deputy director of the agency, said in an interview that while “it is clear that a facility of sizable scale cannot simply be erased in three weeks’ time without leaving traces,” the more likely risk is that the Iranians would pursue smaller-scale but still important nuclear work, such as manufacturing uranium components for a nuclear weapon.

“A 24-day adjudicated timeline reduces detection probabilities exactly where the system is weakest: detecting undeclared facilities and materials,” he said. …

“Certain parts of the installation were renovated, leaving no trace of enrichment activities that had taken place,” Mr. Heinonen said. “However, nonrenovated parts had uranium in the 2003 contamination, which raised concerns.”

As impressive as the Iranians’ efforts at concealment were then, Mr. Heinonen said they would be better prepared to remove the evidence of illicit work if they decided to cheat on the accord.

“There will likely be plans to be executed promptly to avoid getting caught,” he said.

The issue of the side deals will likely not make Congress any more favorable to the deal, either. After the news of side deals emerged, the White House has pushed back against the notion that they’re secret, but …. they won’t share the text with Congress either. That’s because the deals involve negotiations between the IAEA and Iran to which the US was not privy, although Susan Rice says the Obama administration has been “fully briefed on the contents.” Given that the deal involves access to military-site inspections, Congress may want to see those details for themselves rather than rely on assurances from a “fleeced” Obama administration:

Nice line for Corker to repeat. You’ve got to appreciate the gall it takes to attack Kerry when Corker is the one who cut the deal which approved negotiations and the forfeiture of Congresses 2/3rd’s approval responsibility.

Because of Corker there will now be a veto which won’t be overridden.

But keep up the snarky comments, clown.

That is a completely worthless guarantee.

After the news of side deals emerged, the White House has pushed back against the notion that they’re secret, but …. they won’t share the text with Congress either.

According to my understanding, refusing to reveal something makes it a secret.
Those clowns, Obama and Kerry, are setting the world on a path to likely nuclear conflict, in complete contradiction to their spurious claims.

YOU got fleeced by changing the Iran Deal terms so just 33 senators are needed to approve it rather than the original 67.

Or was that the point? Smoke and mirrors so the repubs could duck and cover while they sell the country out yet again?

As for the Iran deal having any credibility – when the POS and his administration begins enforcing laws already on the books, ie amnesty and immigration, just maybe I’ll seriously consider their the truthiness of their Iran deal claims.

onlineanalyst on July 23, 2015 at 12:39 PM

Currently?

Talking to the Cubans about closing Gitmo started in Canada last year.

Currently merely trying to finesse the arrangement.

Cuba has already publicly demanded we give the entire Guantanamo Naval Base back to Cuba.

But, there is more difficulty on the US side than on the Cuban side.

Cuba would accept releasing ALL detainees, to a friendly third country or simply letting them go. Since we “recognized” Cuba, Cuba has jurisdiction over all persons within its borders, to include those “civilians” at Gitmo. The old treaty gives US service members a sort of immunity except for crimes committed towards Cubans. And the old treaty specified a process to end the treaty. Details.

Bottom line, Obama could not close Gitmo.

Cuba will.

Obama says “there was nothing I could do….” and walks away.

And the crowds will cheer, get all teary-eyed, and praise and bless his name.

It’s easy to fleece a stupid sheep.

Anyone with a brain knew in advance the ‘negotiations’ (terms of surrender) this administration were to have with Iran would end badly for everyone except iran, unless of course you were actually rooting for iran.

The left wingers probably were rooting for iran, I accept that. The funny part is the progressive GOP pretending they oppose the deal. They’ll probably pass it with token dissent if they can even scratch together enough people to pretend to oppose it.

I expect no less from our treasonous government.

Instead, he went back, groveling, hat in hand and just got hit with the biggest shaft ever. He has become responsible for much of what I’m afraid will be massive killings on planet earth.

It totally amazes me that people say this is what Kerry and O’s legacies will be – welcome to reality, democrats: WWIII and destruction like we’ve never seen before.

IF there is a way to negate this monstrosity of this piece of paper, I hope someone with some backbone will find a way. I’m not pessimist but realistically, this could be the beginning of the end of freedom.

Quite a legacy, K and O – a real, devastating Knock-Out to freedom.
