Lead U.S. Negotiator Says She Didn’t See ‘Final Documents’ in Iran Deal

WAIMH Red ArrowEDITOR’S COMMENT: How is this possible? If the lead negotiator did not see the ‘final documents’, how does she know that both sides were finished negotiating. You start to sense the ‘hand’ of either unqualified Susan Rice or Valerie Jarrett! And now the administration doesn’t know ‘exactly’ what it signed, but it wants Congress to approve it. Frankly, I don’t understand why the Republicans and especially its leadership are not proclaiming that, since the Obama administration is not fulfilling the requirement to present ALL of the agreement to Congress for review, the law bypassing the normal constitutional ratification process should be considered invalid, and, thus, since they are not honoring the terms of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, it is back to a two thirds vote in the Senate to ratify.

While President Barack Obama delivered his much anticipated speech on the Iran nuclear deal — hoping to appeal to congressional Democrats who could sink or save the agreement — the only administration official to have purportedly seen “side deals between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency” has disclosed that the team was privy to only rough drafts, The Hill reports.

I didn’t see the final documents. I saw the provisional documents, as did my experts,” said Wendy Sherman, the Obama administration’s undersecretary of state for political affairs, who was one of the deal’s lead negotiators.

Sherman, according to The Hill, said she and her team were only permitted access to the side deals, which include Iran’s earlier efforts on a bomb and access to its Parchin military site, “in the middle of the negotiation when the IAEA wanted to go over with some of our experts the technical details.”

Sherman defended to the Senate Banking Committee the administration’s decision to allow the confidentiality agreements “despite the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act demanding all related agreements, because the administration wanted the IAEA to respect the confidentiality of their agreements with the U.S.,” The Hill reports.     (my emphasis)
