State Department spokesman admits public was kept in the dark about side deal that would lift some of the nuclear restrictions on Iran.
Once again the American people are lied to by the State Department. Toner’s original statement on Monday was that this was not part of the agreement but simply a letter given to the IAEA. Now he agrees that it was included in the deal. He says it was not secret because the other super powers knew of it and approved. Yet it was totally kept secret from the American people.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner on Tuesday acknowledged that the public was kept in the dark about a side deal of the Iran nuclear agreement that would lift some of the nuclear restrictions on Iran in a decade.
The revelation was made Monday through a confidential document obtained by The Associated Press (AP).
The document says that as of January 2027 — 11 years after the deal was implemented — Iran will start replacing its mainstay centrifuges with thousands of advanced machines.
From year 11 to 13 of the agreement, the document reveals, Iran will install centrifuges up to five times as efficient as the 5,060 machines it is now restricted to using. More
