Congressmen Confirm Two Iranian Nuke “Side Deals” Being Kept From Congress


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has struck two secret side deals with the Iranians on their nuclear program which are being kept from Congress. Sen Cotton suggests the White House is aware of this but hasn’t released the documents to Congress, who was under the belief they had everything to begin their 60 day review.

Iran only answered questions in one of these areas and rejected the rest as based on forgeries and fabrications.

Former Department of Energy official William Tobey explained in a July 15 Wall Street Journal op-ed why it is crucial that Iran resolve the PMD issue. According to Tobey, “for inspections to be meaningful, Iran would have to completely and correctly declare all its relevant nuclear activities and procurement, past and present…more
