Obama: No Iranian Nuclear Weapon “on my Watch”

(Before It's News)

Whoa whoa whoa whoa waydasecond.

What’s going on here? The Israelis have picked up on something President Obama said in his interview with Tom Friedman, which appeared Saturday in the New York Times.

It appears the goal posts might have been moved a little bit, turning a 50-yard field goal try into an extra point kick.

“I’ve been very clear that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon on my watch, and I think they should understand that we mean it,” Obama told Friedman.

On my watch? Uhh, I thought the goal was to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon on ANYONE’S watch.

Well, Obama possibly has prevented Iran from getting the bomb during the next two years. But as Obama himself said, probably accidentally,  “What is a more relevant fear would be that in Year 13, 14, 15, they have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point, the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero.”

By then, Obama will be on the golf course EVERY DAY and President Chelsea Clinton will be dealing with it.

Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you while we were having a nice little discussion about Iranian nuclear weapons.

Former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations – talk about thankless jobs – Dan Gillerman expressed urgent alarm:

Mr. President, this is not about your watch. This is about the Iranian clock, which is racing towards a nuclear device . . . this is about the life of our children and our grandchildren as well as your grandchildren. So if you don’t care what happens in 20 months, when you leave the White House, we do . . . I think the way that the president is trying to appease Iran is very similar to the appeasement of Hitler.

Gillerman also took strong exception to the White House insult of Prime Minister Netanyahu, done with a tweet mocking Netanyahu’s attempt to delineate the Iranian threat with a drawing of a bomb.

Strong words here from someone who served for years as a spokesman for Israel to the international community.
