NYT Admits Iran Deal 'Welcome Change of Subject' from Obamacare

NYT drools that the deal "opens the door to a range of geopolitical possibilities available to no American leader since Jimmy Carter."

On Monday, The New York Times triumphantly announced that President Obama’s big sell-out of Israel to Iran had in fact been a “welcome change of subject” from Obamacare. Mark Landler called the agreement, which does virtually nothing to check Iran’s nuclear ambitions while making clear that the west is unwilling to take forceful action to stop such ambitions, “a seminal moment” presenting Obama with “the chance to chart a new American course in the Middle East for the first time in more than three decades.”

The Times notes that all of this would be contingent on an agreement actually working. But that doesn’t stop the Times sycophancy: “But the mere fact that after 34 years of estrangement, the United States and Iran have signed a diplomatic accord — even if it is a tactical, transitory one — opens the door to a range of geopolitical possibilities available to no American leader since Jimmy Carter.”

The Times even reported in pure propaganda style White House reports of how Obama was now an expert on the Iranian nuclear program: “Over the course of the negotiations, aides say, Mr. Obama became well-versed in the minutiae of Iran’s nuclear program. At a presentation last week with lawmakers, he ticked off the elements of sanctions relief that the West was prepared to offer Iran.”
