The International Atomic Energy Agency will release a report on the “past military dimensions” of Iran’s nuclear program prior to the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said on Thursday.

Earnest was referring to “side agreements” that have been made between the IAEA and Iran to clarify “past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program,” such as PMDs or the possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear program.

Earnest said the deal struck in Vienna between Iran and world powers in which Iran received “some sanctions relief” in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program could not be implemented until the IAEA report was submitted.

Earnest also noted that the White House was aware of the confidential articles in the roadmap between Iran and the IAEA, and would share the information with lawmakers in private upon request.

President Barack Obama was set to up his lobbying of members of Congress to support the deal, especially beginning the last week of August.

    What other secrets, ‘confidential articles between Iran and the IAEA’, will the White House disclose’upon request’, if we catch them out? If anyone has not read Professor Dershowitz’s article on the Iran deal, it’s well worth reading. No wonder the Iranian leaders are smiling and laughing for the first time in many years! The joke is on us or US!

    No reason to doubt either the IAEA’s integrity, or this White House’s. Both have such impeccable track records.

    Remember when you were a kid, and your mom caught you with your hand in the cookie jar? (I do.) The harder you tried to explain, the worse things got.
