Anyone with half a fucking brain didn’t buy it, but Barky’s media hacks keep spewing the party line.
From the Washington Times.
Ben Rhodes, the talkative aide who is in charge of “strategic communications” for President Obama’s national security team, by Monday had managed to revive opposition to the president’s Iran nuclear deal, alienate journalists supposedly rooting for the president, raise hackles in Israel and even trigger a White House swipe at Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
……Mr. Rhodes, who was the president’s back-channel negotiator on Cuba and had a hand in the infamous Benghazi “talking points,” tried to defend himself from criticism after his comments in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine profile, in which he belittled the Washington press corps and bragged that he created a media “echo chamber” to sell the administration’s foreign policy to the public. The article said the administration’s story of the Iran deal “was largely manufactured” to convince Americans that talks did not begin until 2013, after moderates were elected in Tehran.
……Top Republicans in Congress seized on the episode to highlight weaknesses in the administration’s policy toward Iran and the Middle East in general. Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, Arizona Republican, said it’s “long past time for the Obama administration to disenthrall itself with the dangerous illusion of a new relationship with Iran and adopt a comprehensive strategy to counter Iran’s malign influence and protect America’s national security interests.”
“The spin campaign continues as the Obama administration ignores repeated Iranian provocations that threaten its narrative — the detention of U.S. sailors by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard in clear violation of international law, rockets fired near a U.S. aircraft carrier, ballistic missile tests in violation of United Nations resolutions, and continued support for terrorism and the murderous Assad regime that is destabilizing the Middle East and undermining American interests,” Mr. McCain said, referring to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
……Mr. Rhodes‘ comments are causing blowback in Israel, where the government opposes the deal. The Times of Israel said the revelation proved that “the background to nuclear talks with Iran was misrepresented in order to sell the impression of a more moderate Iranian regime and thus gain greater American public support for an agreement.”
Journalists in Washington, who have often been accused of being too cozy with the Obama administration, expressed irritation Monday with Mr. Rhodes‘ description of the press corps as a collection of inexperienced youngsters spoon-fed information by the White House. “They literally know nothing,” he said.
A network television reporter for NBC called it “quite a put-down” of the White House press corps. A veteran radio reporter, Mark Knoller of CBS News, told White House press secretary Josh Earnest, “We’re the ones talking to the 27-year-old [administration] spokesman.”
Dear media: You’ve been Grubered.
He essentially guaranteed Iran the bomb.
It lifts sanctions, gives them billions in taxpayer dollars, and restricts the inspections that would monitor their race towards a nuke.
And *surprise*, after Iran got the green light, the goat-smelling Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared: “Our policy towards the arrogant U.S. government won’t change at all.”
By extension, Barky has just enabled state-sponsored terrorism.
This SCOAMF was foisted into office by an adoring media, liberals, and minorities who deified him. If Obama had been properly vetted , this corrupt and incompetent malfeasant would have never been installed the first time.
Anyone who studied Obama’s personality, philosophy, friends, associates, and background, would understand that he is not fit to lead a Democratic Republic. Evidently they couldn’t get enough of the first four years of it. He has pushed some of the most depraved, obscene, destructive policies in our history.
For the last eight years this lying sociopath and muslim ass kisser has completely ruined America’s foreign policy, national security, and world standing. His advisors reflect the same morals.
The media got what they wanted. They can pat themselves on the back.
