We are beginning to assemble the trail of what has factually taken place within the backstory of the Iranian nuclear negotiations. The dots are all over the place, but essentially the construct looks very familiar.
♦ The White House Team constructed the political “talking points” approximately 2 days ago 3/31/15 (photo above). [Note subsequent to this meeting not a single media interview by the State Department team]
♦ Those White House points are based on domestic political needs and influenced by increasing domestic backlash. Goal = Historic, Magnificent, Amazing, etc.
♦ A deal is reached by the Secretary of State team with the Iranian team which does not align with the White House construct (talking points). [The actual deal doesn’t really need to line up with the talking points because that’s not the most important aspect – Think “Tax” VS. “Mandate” in ObamaCare].
♦ The Iranian team then points out those talking points don’t align in fact with the deal reached by the negotiation teams. Subsequently calls them “LIES” (link)
Politically the White House now has options:
Option #1. Gruber the electorate (requires an acquiescing media). Meaning, sell an evident fraud as something it is not (ie. Obamacare strategy).
Option #2. Claim the Iranians have changed approach and quash the deal before June; positioning themselves to appear strong, and hiding the fraud.
Remember, this is Machiavellian type stuff – This is what McDonough, Jarrett, Rhodes and Blinkin excel at. “The Truth Is What They Say It Is” !
…. And so President Obama calls Benjamin Netanyahu:
