Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, Yukiya Amano of Japan.

Washington Free Beacon: “The head of the international community’s nuclear watchdog organization disclosed Monday that certain agreements reached under the Iran nuclear deal limit inspectors from publicly reporting on potential violations by the Islamic Republic.

Yukiya Amano, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA, which is responsible for ensuring Iran complies with the agreement, told reporters that his agency is no longer permitted to release details about Iran’s nuclear program and compliance with the deal.

Amano’s remarks come on the heels of a February IAEA oversight report that omitted many details and figures related to Iran’s nuclear program. The report sparked questions from outside nuclear experts and accusations from critics that the IAEA was not being transparent with its findings,”

Opinion: One of the candidates for president said this of the Iran nuclear deal: “It’s do bad, it’s suspicious”, to which I whole-heartedly agree.

Here’s why:

  • The agreement places trust in Iran
  • Iran never agreed to end its reign as the lead sponsor of terror in the world
  • The deal provides billions in sanctions relief without guarantees that those funds do not go to terrorist groups
  • The deal lifted the U.N. arms embargo for conventional weapons and ballistic missiles
  • The United States conceded to Iran the right to have its own nuclear reactors but not to develop indigenous capacity to enrich nuclear fuel, which doubles as the core element of nuclear weapons
  • The United States conceded to Iran the right to enrich but under strict limitations
  • The United States conceded to Iran that the strict limitations on enrichment would expire at a certain point in the future.
  • Iran has a total of 24 days to delay any set of inspections
  • There is only one penalty for any infraction, big or small – taking Iran to the UN Security Council for the “snapback” of international sanctions
  • The agreement includes a statement that Iran considers a reimposition of sanctions as freeing it from all commitments and restrictions under the deal
  • Signatories are prohibited from “re-introducing or re-imposing the sanctions” and, later in the text, are banned from “imposing discriminatory regulatory and procedural requirements in lieu of the sanctions and restrictive measures covered by the agreement.”

To make matters even worse, US inspectors are barred from setting foot in Iran.
