While we are on the Iran Nuke Deal……
As the deadline for renewal draws closer there is more and more BS flying around……there are many myths being perpetrated about this deal…..so if you want to know and are willing to look for the answers then I have a place for you…..
Claim 1: Iran will be allowed to inspect itself.
In August 2015 the Associated Press incorrectly reported that a leaked draft of an agreement between the IAEA and Iran indicated that “Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a site it has been accused of using to develop nuclear weapons.” Within hours, experts and the IAEA corrected the record.
IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano refuted this claim: “I am disturbed by statements suggesting that the IAEA has given responsibility for nuclear inspections to Iran. Such statements misrepresent the way in which we will undertake this important verification work.”
According to Cheryl Rofer, former program director at Los Alamos National Laboratory, “It doesn’t matter whose hands do the sampling. What matters is the verifiability of the sampling, laid out by the sampling and analysis plans as well as the chain of custody. The IAEA’s practice is to prepare sampling kits containing the necessary equipment, oversee the sampling, and be responsible for the chain of custody.”
The authenticity of the document the AP article is based off of has also been called into question; however, according to Jim Walsh, MIT security expert and Council for a Livable World board member, whether the document is real or fake is irrelevant to the primary issue: Iran will not be conducting its own verification or inspections.
Now that I have your attention check out the rest of the popular MYTHS that have been resurrected as the deadline cometh…….
The deal is probably toast….it will not be renewed and they will use the “ify” info from Israel. Then the toads like Pompeo and Bolton will go to work on the president to do something.
