“While UN ambassador Nikki Haley certainly didn’t come to the American Enterprise Institute Tuesday to praise the nuclear agreement with Iran, she insisted she wasn’t there to bury it either. But we think she doth protest too much. Because that is exactly what she set out to do. ‘I’m not making the case for decertifying (the agreement),’ she told her rapt AEI audience. ‘I’m just saying if he (president) should decertify, he has the grounds.’ … Her speech, delivered at the most hawkish think tank in Washington — a nesting ground for the key architects of the Iraq War and wider Global War on Terror, not to mention nearly every anti-Iranian hardliner in town — came just five days after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declared for the eighth time that Iran was complying with the 2015 deal, otherwise known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.” (09/06/17)
