After receiving recent German intelligence indicating that Iran has stepped up efforts to get their slimy hands on nuclear materials (in spite of their promise to discontinue this pursuit as part of the nuclear deal of last summer) Obama is pooh-poohing the report, according to one U.S. official's comments to the Free Beacon.
Germany's internal intelligence agency reported that sources have actually witnessed 'extensive Iranian attempts" to procure illicit materials, "especially goods that can be used in the field of nuclear technology." It goes on to say that Iran is breaching the agreement under the nuclear deal and not respecting the most critical commitments they've made.
What a surprise.
Even illegal immigrant hugger German Chancellor Angela Merkel said this week that the findings shows "Iran continued unabated to develop its rocket programs in conflict with the relevant provisions of the UN Security Council," especially the resolution that bars Iran from pursuing ballistic missile technology.
The report and warnings were met with the same lackadaisical response the Obama administration shows with all things Islamic: a giant yawn.
The administration declined to comment on the intel and told the Free Beacon that it will continue to view Iran as complying with the nuclear accord, a clear example of how Obama puts politics over national security all the time.
"We believe that Iran is continuing to meet its [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] commitments," a State Department official said.
When pressed to explain how this compared with Germany's warnings, the official said the administration "would refer you to German authorities for any comment about reports attributed to them," sounding a lot like Loretta Lynch referring to James Comey.
One CIA official declined to comment on the German intelligence findings and whether they agree with U.S. intelligence assessments.
Many lawmakers view the German intelligence as proof that Iran is in violation of international accords and the Obama administration stands in sharp contrast of that notion. The evidence of Iran's intentions is mounting.
I could go through a whole litany of lawmakers who believe Obama is putting us in a dangerous spot which will culminate in Iran getting a nuclear weapon, but I will spare you. Suffice it to say that the more rope we give Iran, the higher they will go to hang us with it.
There should be no doubts by the American public that Iran's ultimate goal is to develop a nuclear weapon and use it. Doing so will guarantee the coming of the Twelfth Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi.
In order to provide protection for a nation, one must err on the side of caution or risk calamity. Obama is definitely not erring on the side of caution by dismissing Germany's intelligence.
Obama is putting America in a collision course with Iran.
