AP: Nuke talks to miss target; Iran foreign minister heads homeConservatives,
President Obama's nuclear talks with Iran are going nowhere fast with less than 24 hours remaining on the clock.
"The United States insists on more intrusive monitoring than Iran is ready to give. With these and other disputes still unresolved, the likelihood that the Tuesday target deadline for an Iran nuclear deal could slip was increasingly growing even before the U.S. confirmation."
Iran's leadership has made it clear that they will not allow international inspectors into the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities — essentially rendering any deal, no matter how bad, worthless. Iran will be able to cheat at will, and no one will ever know.
Given the emphasis the Obama administration has placed on getting a deal -- any deal, no matter how bad -- with Iran, it does make one wonder what kind of agreement will wind up coming back to Congress for approval.
If a deal isn't reached by July 9, then Congress gets an extra 30 days to review any ultimate final agreement.
No matter where the negotiations stand, the bottom line has not changed. Iran must never be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons. Not now.
