Former FBI Assistant Director: Maybe Robert Mueller Did Not Know About FBI’s Uranium One Investigation When He Was Director

“We don’t know what Mueller knew,” said Ron Hosko, former assistant director of the Criminal Investigative Division at the FBI, hedging against assumptions that former FBI Director Robert Mueller was familiar with federal investigations of Russian state attempts to procure uranium assets in the United States and Canada via illicit measures.

Iran Orders Scientists to Develop Nuclear-Powered Boats

Enraged by the 10-year extension of America’s Iran Sanctions Act, which was recently voted through Congress and will likely be signed into law by President Obama, “moderate” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared that Iranian nuclear scientists have been ordered to draw up plans for a nuclear-powered surface fleet.

Obama Defends Clinton Foundation: ‘Saved Countless Lives’

U.S. Officials Fear Russian Smugglers May Sell Uranium on Black Market

Last month, there were reports of a joint effort between Eastern European countries, especially Moldova, and the FBI to crack down on nuclear smugglers. The deadly contraband for sale in those accounts was cesium, which could be used to create dirty bombs. The authorities were somewhat skeptical about these black marketeers possessing serious nuclear bomb fuel.

Technicians work at a uranium processing site in Isfahan 340 km (211 miles) south of the Iranian capital Tehran, March 30, 2005.

Fact Check: Deal Makes It Easier for Iran to Develop Nukes

In defending the nuclear deal reached with Iran in Vienna today, President Barack Obama said that the agreement cut off Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon. In fact, it does the opposite. The deal makes it far easier for Iran to develop nuclear weapons for four basic reasons. First, it allows Iran to continue hiding much of its nuclear research. Second, its main restrictions last for only eight years. Third, it lets Iran continue developing ballistic missiles. And third, it provides billions of dollars in sanctions relief that Iran will use to further its nuclear aims.

Iran’s Humiliation Of Obama Continues: Sanctions Must End Instantly When Deal Signed

The worst thing about this farce, assuming it ends with sanctions restored and Obama babbling about how the Iranians messed up his beautiful deal, is that it always involved conceding precious legitimacy to the terror state. Iran wasn’t required to make any concessions on its fanaticism, embrace of terrorism, hatred of Israel, or even hatred of America. They were put on a glide path to nuclear weapons in 10 years or less, without agreeing to anything that would contradict the silly story they’ve been peddling for years about how they just want peaceful nuclear energy for civilian consumption.
