U.S., others agreed ‘secret’ exemptions for Iran after nuclear deal

The United States and its negotiating partners agreed “in secret” to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year’s landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions, according to a think tank report published on Thursday.

The report, which was released by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, is based on information provided by several officials of governments involved in the negotiations. The group’s president David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector and co-author of the report, declined to identify the officials, and Reuters could not independently verify the report’s assertions.

“The exemptions or loopholes are happening in secret, and it appears that they favor Iran,” Albright said.

The report ignited a chorus of Republican criticism, including from the campaign of presidential nominee Donald Trump. His campaign sought to link the findings to Trump’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state when secret talks were held with Iran but had left office before formal negotiations began.

“The deeply flawed nuclear deal Hillary Clinton secretly spearheaded with Iran looks worse and worse by the day,” said a statement issued by retired Army General Michael Flynn, a top Trump adviser. “It’s now clear President Obama gave away the store to secure a weak agreement that is full of loopholes.”

    NO surprise. Once again we see obama favoring terrorists over America. If Trump wins he needs to put a stop to every penny going to terrorist supporting countries as a start on day one.

    Obama’s love for Iran, and may be a big thank you to Valerie Jarrett, her home place! No other terrorist country could be funded any better, because Opey knows as soon as these lab rats get the bomb, they’ll use it, and he’s hoping it’ll be America! D’N you to HE$$ Obama!
