CIA Director: Iran deal 'failed' to permanently block Tehran's path to nukes

(Worthy News) - The Iran nuclear deal failed to permanently cut off Iran's path to a nuclear weapon, as well as thwart its Middle East terror activities, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said at a conference Thursday.

US President Donald Trump had concluded the deal had only delayed Iran’s nuclear program, and that “the notion that entry” into the deal “would curtail Iranian adventurism, the terror threat, proved to be fundamentally false.”

Pompeo was being interviewed on stage by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ Center on Sanctions and Illicit Finance chairman Juan Zarate, just days after Trump decertified Iran’s compliance with the deal in a major speech. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

  1. The CIA knew it wasn't going to block Iran's path to nukes, all along, esp the CIA Director's knew.

    That's why the unprecedented visit by Netanyahu (invited) to speak to our US Congress happened. Because some politicians in the USA cared more about Israel and Iran having nukes than others did (I'll forgo the names), and those with brains and morals found a way to get the message to us and each other. But the CIA isn't surprised. They knew almost as soon as Netanyahu did, way back when. It's why Israel was screaming about the Iran deal all along.
