Krauthammer: Iran Prisoner Swap Diverts Attention From 'Disastrous' Nuke Deal
Charles Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight that the Obama administration's prisoner swap with Iran has successfully drawn attention away from the "absolutely disastrous" Iranian nuclear agreement.
He explained that he has no problem with the details of the exchange, asserting that the real story is that the U.S. gave away all leverage in the nuclear negotiations with the Islamic republic.
"We have given everything away," Krauthammer said. "We have guaranteed that Iran will acquire a nuke in about a decade."
He explained that the nuke deal means that with the stroke of a pen, Iran went from a rogue, pariah state to a normal state in good standing in the international community.
"This administration has shown with the seizing of the sailors that it will do nothing to jeopardize this deal in the future in calling out Iran if it cheats. It's guaranteed to be cheated on."
