When the Obama Administration is mercifully over and gone, it will be interesting to see how its various initiatives have worked out. Its signature health care program is in a death spiral, so it’s unlikely to survive in any currently recognizable form. As much of a disaster as that is for Americans, Mr. Obama’s nuclear deal with the Iranians could turn out to be a catastrophe for both the United States and a bunch of other nations.
The negotiations with Iran that led up to the deal have been anything but transparent. Some of that is to be expected as parties to the negotiations release or conceal information in order to bolster their positions. On the other hand, what has been hidden and later revealed has been very disturbing, and casts doubt on at least the competence of the Obama Administration in pursing the agreement if not its integrity.
