Posted on 10/22/2012 5:10:35 AM PDT by Josephat
Last week, Reza Kahlili, a former Revolutionary Guard member wrote that Iran had reached a deal with the Obama Administration to preserve portions of its nuclear program.
Hossain Ebrahimi told reporters yesterday that Obama sent the regime a secret message.
On Saturday, the Iranian regime confirmed this report. The Iranian regime revealed on Saturday that the Obama Administration sent them a secret message through the Swiss Embassy recognizing their nuclear rights. The Swiss government, acting through its Embassy in Tehran, serves as protecting power for U.S. interests in Iran. Fars News reported, via Weasel Zippers:
Senior Iranian parliamentary sources revealed on Saturday that the Swiss envoy to Tehran has quoted US President Barack Obama as acknowledging Irans nuclear rights.
Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti attended a meeting with senior Iranian foreign ministry officials a few days ago to submit a letter from the US president to Tehran leaders.
Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliaments National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA that during the meeting, Agosti had told the Iranian officials that President Barack Obama recognizes Irans right of access and use of the nuclear technology.
There are a couple of points with regard to this (US) message (to Iran), Ebrahimi said and added, Firstly, during the session to submit the message, the Swiss ambassador to Tehran quoted the US president as saying that we (the US) recognize your nuclear rights.
As regards the second issue, the lawmaker said that the Swiss diplomat had also quoted Obama as saying that I didnt want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.
Irans Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Sunday that Iran has received a US message regarding the Strait of Hormoz via three different channels.
The US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice had handed a letter to Irans Ambassador to the UN Mohammad Khazayee; the Swiss Ambassador to Tehran (Livia Leu Agosti) also conveyed the same thing; and Iraqi President Jalal Talabani delivered the same message to Iranian officials, he said last Sunday.
The US letter follows threats by Iran last month to shut off the Strait of Hormoz the worlds most important oil shipping lane if new US and EU sanctions over its nuclear program halted Iranian oil exports.
Just in time for a debate.
So sorry about the double post. It was unintentional but the content of the article may warrant a double post. This is nothing short of treason, if true.
Drill, baby, drill! Then they can do what they want with the Strait Of Hormuz!
Their timing is exquisite
Perhaps O's campaign is rattled by this revelation? Let's hope it is and that it continues through the debate this evening!
I’ll go ahead and call BS on this one. Obama can’t possibly be this stupid... Can he ?
I hate having a traitor with the title of President of the United States. What the is wrong with these brain dead leftists? I’m sick of it. They are disgusting, they use the best that this country has to offer, and they turn on it, as if this country is the enemy with all of their politically correct B.S., that makes no sense to even them, but they buy it, cause of their personal ambition and arrogance. I am fed up.
It was predictable...
Treason is all you can call it!
He prolly told them they could bomb Israel AFTER the election.
A couple of Mata Hari’s. May they meet the same fate.
Maybe I’m just thick in the head, but this makes no sense to me.
An “October Surprise” initiated by the Democratic administration that shows their candidate capitulating to the Iranians??
How could this possibly help him?
If he wanted to do this, why not wait till after the election?
Is there something else, something big, threatened that would require it be done now?
Head spinning. Someone help me understand.
By not MOVING TO IMPEACH OBAMA, the US Congress
supports this TREASON, every day.
EVERY SINGLE DAY.
It appears that either Iran prefers Romney, or neither Obama nor Iran understand how the American electorate will react to a one-sided concession.
I’m taking this with a grain of salt... I need more proof than this..
Mossad psyops perhaps?
isn’t that coluding with the enemy? Just asking.
I agree, but it seems highly unlikely to me that Iran prefers Romney over Obama the Incompetent. Unless they are just really, really stupid.
If this can be verified for tonight's debate, it will be fireworks going off underneath Obama. BUT I'll bet that the Obama camp will just deny, deny, deny, and try to use it as a trap for Romney.
I think it will hurt him more with the Jewish vote..
That is my thinking..
What's bizarre about this is that it's unclear that Obama even recognizes America's "right of access and use of the nuclear technology".
If left to his own devices, Obama would almost certainly unilaterally gut America's nuclear defenses.
Obama is a sick puppy and a dangerous idiot.
Rings true...remember what Zero told the Russians-—”I’ll be more flexible after the election.”
Agreed. I don’t trust a word anyone in the Iranian government says.
This should be major news if true.....it’s treason...yet nothing..crickets!! No one even asks the obvious questions.
Nuclear Arms race in the mideast in 3-2-1.....
Can’t wait for Romney to tear into this!
With the cover-up in Libya and now this as all possible talking points for tonight, how exactly is Obama going to reasonably explain this?? I’m half expecting him to turn up ill and have the debate cancelled.
One problem - The Iranians are even less trustworthy than the Obama White House.
Has this story been corroborated?
Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler worked so well at giving “peace in our time” I can see Obama doing the same. Perhaps he should bring Chamberlain’s trademark umbrella to the debate tonight.
How would one verify such a thing in time for the debate? My Spidey sense says this may be an attempt at getting Romney to accuse Obama in prime time of an unverified story so as to accuse Romney of "shooting first and asking questions later." That would explain this story (or shades of it in regards to reports of a "deal" with Iran) being put out by the NYT and other liberal mouth pieces.
What does the U.S. gain from this? Democrats always punish our friends and reward our enemies.
But his angle was that the announcement would break in favor of Obama because the Iranians would agree to some kind of major limitation on their nuclear program in exchange for recognization of the program.
What's interesting here is that the Iranians seem to be trumpeting the recognition part but not saying anything about the limitation part. Maybe that will come out later.
By downplaying the limitations, and given the timing, the Iranians seem to want to hurt Obama, not help him. At first blush that seems odd — you'd think they'd prefer a pushover Democrat over a toughminded Republican in the White House — except that they did the same thing to Carter. They withheld the release of the hostages in order to insure Carter's defeat. This despite the fact that Carter was a fan of Khomeini and had helped undermine the Shah. Maybe the Iranians can't help but indulge in the short term satisfaction of unseating an American president even at the expense of longer term advantages.
And even then you have to ask, what advantages did they ever lose under Republican presidents? Were they worse off under Reagan than they would have been under Carter? Maybe they see Republicans as toothless tigers. In fact, maybe they accept Obama's talking point about his ability to rally international support for his actions against Iran (sanctions) as compared to an “isolated” Republican’s. Maybe they see this as all upside.
‘Course this is all sort of speculative without seeing more sourcing for this development.
I agree. This smells like a trap. I'm have no doubt that Romney and his camp are savvy enough to ignore it for tonight's debate.
You are correct. This is a bogus story created by the Iranians to disrupt tonight’s debate and muddy the presidential campaign.
Iran wants Obama to win.
Is there any possibility that Israel/Mossad are providing underground information to Romney? You know Netanyahu would LOVE to see Obama the Incompetent go down the tubes.
If this is true, Obama should officially be toast. All his antics that were supposedly intended to keep Iran from going nuclear were just stalling. Obama is a foreign enemy combatant occupying our White House, and his intention is to see the Islamists overrun the entire world - destroying the US and Israel and instituting worldwide sharia - just as he told the Egyptian ambassador privately in January of 2010.
We’re asking. No one is answering. But we DO know obama sent a secret envoy to Iran to ‘sit in’ on some negotiation as an ‘observer’, so I believe this 100%.
Obama is a cyst on the hemorrhoids of mankind.
“Just in time for a debate.”
I smell a setup. If Romney jumps on this, it will turn out to have been the wrong thing to do.
This little ditty is very telling too.....especially in light of the O administration propaganda line that brags of putting ‘crippling sanctions’ on Iran and that it is having the desired effect:
“As regards the second issue, the lawmaker said that the Swiss diplomat had also quoted Obama as saying that I didnt want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.
If true the ploy makes perfect sense to me. It would not be directed at people like you or me who won’t support obama anyway. It would be directed to independents and mushy middle roaders who like parties and countries to negotiate. If this story is true the details would not get out in time. Obama would say the iran problem is solved and the deal is solid. since no one knows what the deal is it would be harder to challenge obama’s assertions.
I had the same reaction, but maybe Romney is smart enough to phrase it in a way that attacks both Obama and the Complicit Media.
Maybe a question asked of both Obama and Schieffer: There are reports from X (and name ALL sources including the Swiss) that say Y(nicely condensed summary of this revelation). Mr. Precedent, would you comment and Mr. Schieffer would you research this and report your findings as you and all the press should do on behalf of the people who depend on you for their news!
“..accuse Romney of shooting first and asking questions later..”
I agree - the Iranians cannot be trusted and this seems like a set up. Romney absolutely should not mention it unless he can 100% confirm it from a completely trustworthy third party. That this is a trap was my immediate first reaction. Iranians are Muslims and are allowed to lie (even encouraged) with impunity if it “advances” their Islamicist agenda (complete spread of Mohammedism) and concerns dealings with the infidel.
