July 14, 2016 was the one-year anniversary of the nuclear agreement with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA.
In his book, Obamabomb: A Dangerous and Growing National Security Fraud, Center for Security Policy Senior Vice President Fred Fleitz provides a detailed analysis of the dangers this agreement continues to pose to U.S. and international security, including:
- Why the threat from Iran’s nuclear weapons program is growing despite the JCPOA;
- How the nuclear agreement gave Iran a pass on its nuclear weapons work and led the IAEA to dumb down its reports on the Iranian nuclear
- How the agreement has made Iran a greater regional and international threat;
- The Obama administration’s deceptive campaign to implement the agreement; and
- How the Obama administration is trying to grant further concessions to Iran.
Fleitz speaks on the anniversary of the adoption of the agreement at the Heritage Foundation
Although Fleitz argues that the nuclear deal is so dangerous that the next president should tear it up and start over, Obamabomb also includes recommendations for new sanctions against Iran and these principles that should guide any effort by a future president to re-negotiate the nuclear pact:
- Iran must cease all uranium enrichment and uranium enrichment research.
- Iran not have a heavy-water reactor or a plant to produce heavy-water.
- Robust verification, including allowing anytime, anywhere inspections by IAEA inspectors to all declared and suspect nuclear sites, including military facilities.
- Iran must fully and truthfully answer all questions about its prior nuclear weapons-related work.
- Iran must curtail and agree to limitations on its ballistic missile program.
- Lift sanctions in stages in response to Iranian compliance.
- Iran must agree to end its meddling in regional conflicts and sponsorship of terror.
- Threats by Iran to ships in the Persian Gulf, U.S. naval vessels and American servicemen and servicewomen must cease.
- Iran must cease its hostility toward Israel.
- Iran must release all US prisoners.
Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney said about Obamabomb:
Fred Fleitz’s new book Obamabomb: A Dangerous and Growing National Security Fraud could not be more timely. Fleitz’s detailed analysis of this agreement not only proves the growing danger that the agreement poses to U.S. national security, he explains how the deal is making a U.S. enemy and leading actor in the Global Jihad Movement into a regional hegemon in the Middle East. Fleitz also discusses the dishonest Obama administration campaign to implement this agreement over bipartisan majorities in Congress and the dangerous precedent this set for future presidents.
