The Obama administration is scrambling to sell its Iran nuclear deal to the American people, but it keeps getting tripped up by its own words. One point that struck a nerve with many people is the fact that Iran can delay inspections of a suspected nuclear site by 24 days, allowing for the removal of any evidence of illicit activity.
On April 7, 2015, President Barack Obama’s National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “under this deal, you will have anywhere, any time 24/7 access as it relates to the nuclear facilities that Iran has.”
Now, on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Secretary of State John Kerry said, “This is a term that, honestly, I never heard in the four years that we were negotiating. It was not on the table. There’s no such thing in arms control as any time, anywhere.”
