Charles Krauthammer last night said that the Obama administration and Iran will agree to continue talks about the latter’s nuclear program this week because the administration wants to “come up with a fig leaf of a deal.”
Iran is “the most serious threat to the West,” Krauthammer said on Bill O’Reilly’s show, and any new nuclear offer will preserve its status as a nuclear threshold state.
“Under the proposal they’re talking about now, [Iran] would simply freeze what they have now,” Krauthammer said. “There’s not an iota of dismantling, or even taking stuff away, let alone talk about removing.”
“That’s what you would expect from a serious president,” Krauthammer said. But, instead, Obama’s desperation for a deal with Iran is just an effort to “put points on the board,” he said.
