… Why Hide the Side Agreements ?? [#Iran Nuclear Agreement]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 8th,2016

.. why ? ..

.. to hide the real details of the agreement from the party that needs to know it most : the U.S. Congress ..

Due to His Lordship ‘ s [Obama ‘ s] legal and extralegal pirouettes , it is being treated as an ” executive agreement . ” Which , in this case , has it backwards . POTUS should be seeking votes to approve a treaty  . He is not . He is seeking support , instead , to sustain an expected veto …

His Lordship has , in effect , lied  to each and every member of the U.S. Congress , in addition to the P5 + 1 group , and , even , ironically , Iran . The added support would allow POTUS and the DemoCraps to filibuster the resolution of disapproval . It is a cowardly act , thus avoiding a full and free vote …
