Outmaneuvered Again: Obama Blinked on New Sanctions for Iran to Get Some American Hostages Back, Others Still Remain

Barack Oabama continues to be Iran’s Bitch as he gets out negotiated by the world’s leading sponsor of Terror. 

NewsMax reports the day before the Obama administration was due to slap new sanctions on Iran late last month, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif warned U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry the move could derail a prisoner deal the two sides had been negotiating in secret for months. 

Kerry and other top aides to President Barack Obama, who was vacationing in Hawaii, convened a series of conference calls and concluded they could not risk losing the chance to free Americans held by Tehran.

This account of previously unreported internal deliberations was provided by two people with knowledge of the matter.
