Surprising precisely no one, Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran’s nuclear chief, confirmed on Iranian state media that the terrorist state flagrantly violated Barack Obama’s “nuclear deal,” even using Photoshop to fudge the evidence. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translation of the report, this was accomplished by secretly buying replacements and using Photoshop to fake “proof” of destroyed infrastructure. Salehi, of course, spun the duplicity not as one of strategic necessity but rather that the evil United States would renege. “The leader warned us that they were violators of agreements,” Salehi said. “We had to act wisely. Not only did we avoid destroying the bridges that we had built, but we also built new bridges that would enable us to go back faster if needed.” Thanks for that strategic move, Barry!

In yet another confirmation of Iran’s blatant violation of the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which is committed to translating into English otherwise-hidden primary source material from the Arab and Muslim world, has reported that the terrorist regime in Tehran secretly purchased replacements for its nuclear infrastructure that the nuclear deal had otherwise required it to destroy. Per MEMRI:
Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, was interviewed on Channel 4 TV (Iran) on January 22, 2019. He said that the negotiations surrounding the JCPOA had required Iran to destroy the Arak reactor’s calandria by filling it with cement, but that Iran had secretly acquired replacement tubes ahead of time so that the reactor’s functionality would not be ultimately affected. He also said that pictures that had circulated that showed the Arak reactor’s pit filled with cement had been photoshopped.
