Exclusive: Obama’s Secret Iran Détente

by Eli Lake, Josh Rogin Nov 8, 2013 5:45 AM EST

Long before a nuclear deal was in reach, the U.S. was quietly lifting some of the financial pressure on Iran, a Daily Beast investigation reveals. How the sanctions were softened.


The Obama administration began softening sanctions on Iran after the election of Iran’s new president in June, months before the current round of nuclear talks in Geneva or the historic phone call between the two leaders in September.

While those negotiations now appear on the verge of a breakthrough the key condition for Iran—relief from crippling sanctions—began quietly and modestly five months ago.

A review of Treasury Department notices reveals that the U.S. government has all but stopped the financial blacklisting of entities and people that help Iran evade international sanctions since the election of its president, Hassan Rouhani, in June.

Senator Ted Cruz
We are going to unfreeze Iran’s assets and give them 6 months? Are we paying them to get a bomb?

I read last night on the TV crawl the admin said if they break the santions rules we will re-apply them...................

When Israel gets nuked then what bammy. Are these people this stupid to really think they can get Iran to stop its nuke weapon program? Or is this admin willing to let Iran nuke Israel?

Without Congressional approval too.. no surprise but if it were any other President the words Treason would already be thrown around.

It's entirely possible that this administration would secretly cheer Iran nuking Israel.

Not without Congressional approval.  But what will the spineless ones to about it? Probably not even an investigation.

It would help if Congress wasn't useless.

Pffft, Darrell Issa probably has an investigation in the works!

If Israel is not ensuring they have an unstoppable and complete first strike capability...total destruction...then they are as vacant as American Jews.

This is another major issue this Regime has been lying their asses off about.  Obama never intended to use force against Iran to prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons, and in fact there has been a great deal of very informed reporting over the last five years about how the Administration's long term goal has always been managing a nuclear armed Iran as opposed to preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons at any cost.

Netanyahu has already denounced this idea as extremely dangerous, and it is exactly this kind of mentality in the Obama Administration that has Saudi Arabia and its allies up in arms and actively seeking Chinese warheads to fit on the short range Chinese made ICBMs they already have.

This has never been secret, it has been ignored by the American press and denounced by the Administration as the deluded ravings of the Ted Cruz-Tea Party led racist Republican extremists.

And we have Lurch over in "Palestine" trying to stir up a distraction to the Iran foreign policy debacle as well as the Syrian foreign policy debacle that was supposed to be a distraction from the ongoing Benghazi foreign policy debacle.

The average American can't spell Iran, let alone find it on a map, or have the first clue about what's going on there.

The media used to almost inform the people, they have abandoned that task as if it were poison, (because an informed public is poison to liberalism).
