A brief look at the Obama-Kerry disaster

It’s f-word Israel today in America, thanks to President Nitwit and his legacy-hunting. Hell, it’s f-word America in America. Day of infamy, anyone, when the hand that holds the pen (and has a phone) has stabbed Israel in the back, and America too.

Details below, excerpted from Frederick Kagan’s op-ed in Wall St. Journal. Read them and weep.

* The document [signed and sealed, Sun-Times headlines] doesn’t mention the 60-day window for review by the U.S. Congress, and the language in this section suggests that action in the U.N. will not await any congressional vote.

. . . .

It is again noteworthy [after the proviso: “pending ratification by . . . the Iranian parliament”] that no mention is made of any action to be taken by the U.S. Congress, despite the nod to Iran’s legislature.

Noteworthy and damnable. F-word Congress.

Nothing in the text of the agreement itself supports President Obama’s assertion that the [international arms] embargo will last for another five years, although he may have that time frame in mind.

He can afford to toss that out, safe in knowing how little will be made of it by the Third Estate.

The U.S. is not in a very strong position to engage the Russians on [the arms embargo], since the Obama administration must get the resolution through the Security Council quickly or risk having the entire nuclear deal fall apart.

Hurry, hurry, ignoring Congress.
