New York Times article reveals Obama’s Iran deal was a complete lie by an aspiring novelist with no policy experience.

In the fictional 1997 movie, “Wag the Dog”, a hopelessly corrupt White House hires a Hollywood writer to boost the President’s political fortunes by scripting a fake war.

Nearly 20 years later, Barack Obama has made it a reality.

In a shocking New York Times magazine feature, White House speechwriter Ben Rhodes reveals not only was Obama’s deal to ship nuclear materials to Iran built on a complete lie, but Rhodes himself has a direct hand in shaping U.S. foreign policy, despite holding zero foreign policy experience whatsoever.

In fact, Rhodes was hired by Obama because he was an aspiring novelist – someone who knows how to write a fictional story.

The New York Times reports:

The way in which most Americans have heard the story of the Iran deal presented — that the Obama administration began seriously engaging with Iranian officials in 2013 in order to take advantage of a new political reality in Iran, which came about because of elections that brought moderates to power in that country — was largely manufactured for the purpose for selling the deal. Even where the particulars of that story are true, the implications that readers and viewers are encouraged to take away from those particulars are often misleading or false…

… In the narrative that Rhodes shaped, the “story” of the Iran deal began in 2013, when a “moderate” faction inside the Iranian regime led by Hassan Rouhani beat regime “hard-liners” in an election and then began to pursue a policy of “openness”…

… While the president’s statement was technically accurate — there had in fact been two years of formal negotiations leading up to the signing of the J.C.P.O.A. — it was also actively misleading, because the most meaningful part of the negotiations with Iran had begun in mid-2012, many months before Rouhani and the “moderate” camp were chosen in an election among candidates handpicked by Iran’s supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The idea that there was a new reality in Iran was politically useful to the Obama administration. By obtaining broad public currency for the thought that there was a significant split in the regime, and that the administration was reaching out to moderate-minded Iranians who wanted peaceful relations with their neighbors and with America, Obama was able to evade what might have otherwise been a divisive but clarifying debate over the actual policy choices that his administration was making…

In other words, the White House deliberately lied when they said Iran had changed its ways, and more pro-American reformers crafted the deal.

In reality, Obama’s Iran deal was written by the same anti-American terrorist regime that intentionally used the money to finance the murders of American soldiers in Iraq.

Thanks to Obama’s deal, written by a novelist who knew it was fictitious, a radical terrorist regime now has nuclear materials and billions of dollars in new cash to fund global terrorism.
