The one-year anniversary of creation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has passed, leaving Republicans and Democrats perhaps more unified on the deal’s faults and the way forward. The problem, quite frankly, has been a weak and dishonest Obama administration that frustrated both parties in Congress and failed to produce the deal it promised. Once Obama is gone, there is room for bipartisan agreement.

He said the “JCPOA is Tehran’s redoubled radicalism” and that “Rouhani and his colleagues continue to demonstrate just how hardline they all are.”

The year since the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program was announced has been a strategic windfall for Iran and a disaster for the United States. Many of the deal’s shortcomings were glaring from the beginning, yet they have been magnified by serial and gratuitous U.S. concessions to unilateral Iranian demands.

A year after the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program was announced, Iran unquestionably has gotten the better of the deal. The agreement made public last July in Vienna, and the policy decisions attending its implementation, show a clear pattern of unilateral Iranian demands being met by unforced U.S. concessions. In consequence, Iran’s nuclear weapons program and sway in the Middle East will continue to grow, while U.S. deterrence and influence will diminish and the risks of conflict will mount.

July 14 marks a year since President Barack Obama announced an unsigned agreement with Iran on its nuclear program, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), perhaps the most important diplomatic event in recent memory. A majority of Congress and Americans opposed it; Obama considers it his crowning foreign policy achievement. Given these starkly different views, and the high stakes for our national security, it is worth asking, after one year, what has the JCPOA accomplished?

Never, it seems, has there been such dissonance between the media perception of a military operation and the reality a decade later as there is surrounding the 2006 Second Lebanon War.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on June 5 signed Executive Order No. 157, directing state entities to divest all public funds supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.

In his recent speech at Hiroshima, President Obama said the use of atomic weapons should serve as a "moral awakening" to pursue his vision for a nuclear-free world. Unfortunately, he severely understated both his own efforts to achieve this, and the most pressing threat that these weapons will spread. Obama should emphasize how the United States is actively and earnestly undertaking unprecedented steps toward nuclear disarmament. He should then leverage this against Iran's efforts to make a mockery of his vision.
