Negotiators from Iran and Western powers in Vienna working to hammer out a comprehensive nuclear agreement will not put their signatures to the final document, a U.S. official with knowledge of the negotiations told Israeli NRG news on Wednesday.

“A final deal, if we get to it, will be a ‘comprehensive joint plan of action’,” the official said, “the document itself will not be signed.”

The agreement, the official added, “will include a comprehensive political text and a number of technical annexes.” One of them, he said, is slated to become a text that will be presented to the U.N. Security Council for approval.

    It matters not.

    An Iranian signature would be as worthless as an Iranian word.

    Obama’s signature would be as worthless as Obama’s word.

    This entire drawn out play acting fiasco by all parties has been as worthless as the oceans of words expended.
    Except that Iran has been given even more time to flesh out its military and its nuclear ambitions.

    Obama’s legacy – the deaths of millions.

    For selfish reason and his legacy, Obama is ready to sign any deal, and begging the Iranians for a deal, what a joke.
