During the imperial emperors speech yesterday he put Congress and pretty much all of America on notice (preemptive pointing finger of blame) that if the Iranian nuke deal fails it's our fault. Yet almost immediately after the press briefing following the announcement of an agreement on the framework of a deal Iran came out saying America lied and the French have come out saying there is no deal! Obama and Kerry are playing games to look good to the world body, but think how insane this is when you have France coming out saying there's nothing there! FRANCE!!

Iranian leadership smiling and people dancing in the streets should be a clear indicator how bad this deal will be if it goes through.

From that point, the Journal reports, the U.S. accepted that any possible deal would likely enable Iran to continue to enrich some uranium to produce nuclear fuel and turned their focus to extending Iran's so-called "breakout time" or the minimum period that Iran would need to build a nuclear weapon.
