In 1994, then U. S. President Bill Clinton made statements about North Korea that sound very much like those President Obama has recently made regarding Iran: “This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. Under the agreement, North Korea has agreed to freeze its existing nuclear program and to accept international inspection of all existing facilities. This agreement represents the first step on the road to a nuclear North Korea. It does not rely on trust. Compliance will be certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency.”
Despite President Clinton’s assurances, North Korea got the bomb 12 years later! Analyst Charles Krauthammer wrote this about what happened on Jan. 16: “Give President Obama credit. His Iran nuclear deal may be disastrous, but the packaging was brilliant.” Why brilliant? Because the world was distracted from the deal by the prisoner exchange that happened at the same time. Krauthammer said the administration “cleverly used” the swap “to create a heartwarming human interest story to overshadow a rotten diplomatic deal” (Washington Post, Jan. 21). Here was the implementation of this terrible deal that is hastening World War III, and instead the media focused on five people being released from prison!
This deal makes global holocaust imminent. Yet the experts and onlookers focused instead on these few individuals coming home. With Clinton and Obama leading us we are doomed. Send a copy to Trump, he can use it against Hillary.
