Con­ser­va­tive take: Iran Shows Obama Is Putin’s Lackey

New York Post - - POSTOPINION -

For all the talk about Rus­sia want­ing Don­ald Trump in the White House, a “far more se­ri­ous evil is emerg­ing” in Iran — with Pres­i­dent Obama “paving the way for Vladimir Putin to help the mul­lahs go nu­clear,” charges Roger Si­mon at PJ Me­dia. He notes the lat­est dis­clo­sure that Washington has OK’d the trans­fer to Iran of 130 tons of Rus­sian nat­u­ral ura­nium, which is used to pro­duce weapons-grade plu­to­nium. “Much as with the Af­ford­able Care Act,” says Si­mon, “Obama is ap­par­ently will­ing to do just about any­thing to pre­serve the Iran deal, only the lat­ter is far more dan­ger­ous,” be­cause you can’t “re­form a nu­clear bomb.” As a re­sult, “Obama has left Don­ald Trump with his most prob­lem­atic is­sue.” And “a nu­clear-armed Iran is ISIS on steroids.”
