Krauthammer: Obama Admin 'Will Not Let Facts Stand in the Way' of Iran Deal
Charles Krauthammer reacted tonight on "Special Report" to reports that the Obama administration knew that Iran was merely several months away from obtaining a nuclear weapon, but led the American people to believe otherwise.
"Why? They were pretending otherwise because in that way they could portray [Israeli Prime Minister] Bibi Netanyahu - who actually gave an accurate assessment - as an alarmist trying to stir up war," Krauthammer said.
He added that the White House also kept its assessment of Iran's nuclear timeline quiet to justify the long, drawn-out negotiations that were renewed twice.
The reason they are acknowledging the short timeline now is to serve their political purposes, Krauthammer asserted.
"This administration is determined to get a deal and will not let the facts stand in the way."
