Oh I have no doubt Obama is keeping quiet about what's actually happening in Iran, but the Iranians are certainly also lying to the U.S. about what they actually have. Nations lie to each other. Nations lie to their own citizens. We're not breaking any new ground over here.

Within 2 years Iran will be armed with nuclear weapons
What is more disconcerting for you exactly:
1. That a P.O.S politician lied to you?
2. That Iran might make nuclear weapons and "Islamic extremists" will consequently nuke the continental US?
If your answer is #2 I can understand - after all, have you seen the devastating effect the detonation of nuclear weapons has on another country and it's population?
That happened once (twice), in 1943.
For the door prize - can you guess which country detonated those nukes? and for a meat-platter prize can you guess the country that got nuked (twice)?
Now for the mystery prize - how many countries have nukes and how many countries have used them on other countries?
Given the way the US government is arming domestic law enforcement to the teeth whilst at the same time suffering from OCD gun grabbing syndrome towards US citizens, maybe...just maybe Iran wants a weapon or 2 as a deterrent - just like US citizens (the smart ones) are stockpiling guns and ammo at the moment.
America openly kill civilians from other nations in the thousands/millions, as do israel in the hundreds.
America has started many wars over the past century, they have caused so much death and destruction that the world has become desynsetized to the mass murder. Another 1000 civilians killed by the USA surgical strikes, and what is the reaction of the western world?
You sit happily and ignorantly behind your computer, ignoring the fact that while America and Israel are safe behind their weapons of mass destruction, middle eastern women and children are openly murdered, their lives ruined, houses smashed to pieces, environments mangled, ecomomies in pieces but it's okay right? Because it isnt directly affecting you??
And you would have me believe that America is the epitome of justice, and the the middle east are just stupid people ?
International inspectors have had daily access. What they describe is a complete freeze on certain activites and a possible technical problem/backlog on conversion of the highest enriched uranium. Iran says 'in dustrial sabotage'. Either way, the international inspectors say that Iran is not oving towards making a nuclear weapon.

It's not just to take a pop at Obama. If your country is the chief negotiator to limit a country's ability to build a nuke, and you tell the world that their program is frozen, you better be in a position to know. I don't for a moment believe that we just found out about this, and if we did that just proves these negotiations have been a farce from the beginning. If Iran won't let our people in to see what they are doing there's no logic in continuing to bicker at a negotiating table. This is just a waste of time - which is exactly what they want. So far we have been playing right into their hand.
Who would have thought that a little country like Iran could have duped the United States? If Obama didn't know he might as well wear a dunce hat for the rest of his term. But personally, I think he knew.
