Should the Obama Administration be making special conditions in dealing with Iran?

The Obama administration is pressing Congress to provide an exemption from Iran sanctions to companies based in "cooperating countries," a move that likely would exempt Chinese and Russian concerns from penalties meant to discourage investment in Iran.

  • It's incredible the administration is asking for exemptions, under the table and winking and nodding, before the legislation is signed into law," Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Florida Republican and a conference committee member, said in an interview. A White House official confirmed Wednesday that the administration was pushing the conference committee to adopt the exemption of "cooperating countries" in the legislation.

    "The administration wants to give a pass to countries for merely supporting a watered-down, almost do-nothing U.N. resolution," she said.

  • Iran is a huge threat. They don't see kowtowing as respect, they see it as weakness.

  • I believe that O is handling Iran in the completely wrong way, from Day 1 of his administration. A-jad is nothing more than a tin-hat dictator, who thinks he controls the world. But, then, we have the same kind of leadership..

  • What's the point of sanctions then? Aside from the usual communist countries China and Russia are the biggest enablers of Irans agenda. I don't care what anyone says, this administration is harming our Country at every move.
