Fred Fleitz, Washington Times: More disturbing details about Obama’s nuclear sellout to Iran

In an article published Wednesday, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, a notorious Obama administration apologist, provided his latest endorsement of the president’s deeply flawed nuclear diplomacy with Iran. Ignatius also discussed some worrisome U.S. concessions to Iran that have not been previously disclosed.

During testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry denied that the United States has proposed a final nuclear deal with Iran last only 10 years. Although the 10-year limit has been leaked to many journalists, Mr. Ignatius confirmed that Obama officials want a deal with a “double-digit” duration of 10-15 years.
