President Obama’s foreign-policy guru Ben Rhodes has openly admitted to the false narrative created to support the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. He bragged about taking advantage of a stupid and compliant press. He took advantage of the press having no foreign offices of their own. Ben fed them the lie that the Obama deal was taking place with “moderates.” Ben Rhodes is even smug about it. America is held in contempt by these arrogant elitist.
This skilled storyteller duped America into passing Iran deal
By Bob Fredericks at the New York Post
The Obama administration cooked up a phony story to sell Americans on the Iranian nuke deal, lying that US officials were dealing with “moderates” in the Islamic theocracy who could be trusted to keep their word, it was reported Thursday.
The White House line — which Rhodes says he created — was that Obama started negotiations after the supposedly moderate Hassan Rouhani was elected president in 2013.
But Obama had set his sights on working out a deal with the mad mullahs as early as 2008, and negotiations actually began when strongman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was still president.
Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, concedes in the article that the so-called moderate regime is not moderate at all.
“We’re not betting on it,” he said.
Despite having little foreign-policy experience, Rhodes, 38, a former aspiring novelist who grew up on the Upper East Side, was in charge of a massive White House “messaging” effort that fed the bogus line to journalists.
“We created an echo chamber. They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say,” he admitted in the Times interview when asked about the plethora of “experts” praising the deal in the press.
