Of course it is. Something that doesn’t factually exist can be just about anything you determine it to be. If an elephant walks through your front yard, how many pancakes does it take to fill a canoe?

(Via The Hill) The nuclear deal negotiated with Iran is a “forever agreement” that will last well beyond the next decade, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said Monday from the White House briefing room.
Moniz, who played a key role in negotiating the nuclear pact in Switzerland, said the framework agreement provides for intrusive inspections that would ensure Iran is not racing to build a nuclear weapon.
Many of those conditions would last for 25 years or more, he added, well beyond the 10-year limits on Iran’s ability to construct centrifuges.
“It’s not a fixed-year agreement; it’s a forever agreement,” Moniz told reporters at the White House. “The access and transparency is unprecedented,” Moniz said.
The comments from the Energy secretary are part of a full-court press the Obama administration is making to both build support for the deal, and to convince Congress to give negotiators time to reach a final agreement by the end of June.
President Obama called the agreement a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” in an interview with The New York Times released Sunday. He has touted the framework deal repeatedly in appearances from the White House and in the media. (read more)
