Why isn’t it a national scandal when the senior White House advisor admits the Iran nuke deal was all a charade?
Senior White House advisor Ben Rhodes bragged during interviews with The New York Times Magazine that the administration purposefully deceived the public by leaking false information to the media.
One example: The administration claimed that negotiations didn’t really get going until after so-called moderate leaders like President Hassan Rouhani came into power. In actuality, they commenced long before that, and most of the details were hammered out with hard-liners.
The “negotiations” in Switzerland were all for show, and don’t you dare look behind the curtain.
The reporters the White House talked to “literally know nothing,” Rhodes told the Times. “We created an echo chamber,” and as a result the media “were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.”
What’s worse is that the White House doesn’t deny any of this. It’s as though they were proud they deceived the public.

Fox News Channel analyzed the move on “The Five.”
“Something tells me that if this were a Republican regime, Pulitzers would be won and impeachment would be in high gear,” Fox News host Greg Gutfeld offered.
But it’s not a GOP administration — it’s a Democratic administration, and to raise the alarm would be racist, “and this caper is cast as a victory.”
“It was put together like some bizarre, bad episode, poorly rated on ‘West Wing’” Kimberly Guilfoyle said, adding that the American public would be ill-served to elect Hillary Clinton who was neck-deep into the foreign policy lie.
Even Juan Williams, the resident liberal voice on “The Five,” thought the White House was “arrogant” in its handling of the press.
Fox News was one of the few outlets to question the State Department on the Iran nuke deal, and in yet another White House attempt to alter history, Fox News correspondent James Rosen claimed the State Department erased one of his questions from its video archive.
