Reader Opinion: A bad deal

I've seen letters and articles from people supporting the Iran nuclear deal and it just shows people haven't read it or done their homework on it, including Congressman Nolan, who hasn't read the entire thing. This deal harkens back to ObamaCare, when we were told by the Democrats, "We have to pass it to know what's in it."

Any person who calls this deal strong must have missed the parts where it doesn't allow inspectors in at a moment's notice. They can delay almost a month.

The fox will be the one watching the hen house with this deal.

But even if the fox gets caught in the hen house it doesn't matter. The only thing this deal does is turn over the violation over to the UN. Then what happens you ask? Well they snap back into place the sanctions but there is a catch. The contracts signed by Iran up until the point of the snapback are grandfathered in. In other words, sanctions only affect future deals not those currently in place.

But one of the scariest things this deal does is freeing up the assets of page after page of people and companies whose assets were frozen. This includes people who are on terrorists watch lists.

Also buried in this deal five years from implementation is sanctions relief including the lifting of the conventional arms embargo on Iran and, in year eight, the lifting of delivery of ballistic missile components to Iran.

This deal is terrifying and it's obvious with the method used to put it in motion, with attempts to hide parts from Congress and the American people, that they know it's a bad deal.

Congressman Nolan shouldn't be supporting this deal but because he sits in President Obama's pocket he will do as he's told.
