Obama Administration Loosens Nuclear Deal After Iran Violates It

The Iranians have openly cheated the nuclear deal, so the Obama administration will not penalize them.

"The International Atomic Energy Agency said in a recent report that Iran violated the nuclear deal by exceeding its limit for heavy water, a material used in the production of weapons-grade plutonium. The State Department would not call the incident a formal violation Wednesday, and told reporters Thursday that it did not see the 130-metric-ton threshold laid out in the nuclear deal as a hard, certain figure.
"If you look at the wording within the [nuclear deal], it actually says that Iran's needs, consistent with the parameters … are estimated to be 130 metric tons. State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. That's not a hard certain figure............
"After Iran exceeded the heavy water threshold in February, the Obama Administration bought thirty-two tons of Iranian heavy water for roughly $8.6 billion. The purchase ensured that the country remained in compliance with the nuclear deal."

So the Obama adminstration is openly covering for Iranian cheating on nuclear weapons.
