Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva.

Iran and Western nations including the United States came to an agreement on the framework for an interim deal late Saturday night in Geneva. The deal has yet to be implemented

The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced.

However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday rejected the White House’s version of the deal as “invalid” and accused Washington of releasing a factually inaccurate primer that misleads the American public.

“What has been released by the website of the White House as a fact sheet is a one-sided interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva and some of the explanations and words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of Action, and this fact sheet has unfortunately been translated and released in the name of the Geneva agreement by certain media, which is not true,” Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham told the Iranian press on Tuesday.

Afkham and officials said that the White House has “modified” key details of the deal and released their own version of the agreement.

Iran’s right to enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, is fully recognized under the draft released by Tehran.

“This comprehensive solution would enable Iran to fully enjoy its right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes under the relevant articles of the NPT in conformity with its obligations therein,” the agreement reads, according to a copy released to Iranian state-run media.

“This comprehensive solution would involve a mutually defined enrichment programme with practical limits and transparency measures to ensure the peaceful nature of the programme,” the Iranian draft reads.“This comprehensive solution would constitute an integrated whole where nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.”

Iran’s objection to the deal raises new concerns about final stage talks meant to ensure that the deal is implemented in the next few weeks.

Uh, no, we're not out of Iraq.

Uh, no, we won't be out of Afghanistan next year.

Yes, but lifting the sanctions and giving them extra time and billions of dollars is allowing Iran to get up off its knees.

What foreign policy accomplishments? Benghazi? Egypt? The fact Israel, our greatest ally in the Middle East is enraged at the deal we made with Iran?

The ACA has nothing to do with Bush.

Reports emanating from UnionLeader.com indicate that state Rep. Marilinda Garcia is notifying Granite State Republicans she’s likely to challenge Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster for Congress in the 2nd district.

At age 30, and having served as a state representative since 2006, she’s oft-regarded as a future for rockstar in the New Hampshire GOP, having been given a “Rising Star” award by the Republican National Committee this year.

“A GOP source says Garcia is about 90 percent ‘in,’ and said she is eyeing an announcement in early November,” wrote Union Leader’s John DiStaso.

Should she mount a challenge to Kuster, Garcia will first face former state Senator Gary Lambert in the Republican primary, with the seat considered a tossup next November.

Kuster has consistently sported lackluster polling numbers, with last week’s poll showing just 23 percent of district residents approve her job performance, compared to 28 percent unfavorable and 40 percent not knowing enough to form an opinion.

Lambert was virtually tied in a head-to-head, 34-33 percent.

Garcia currently serves on the Finance Committee in the state House, and sits on the executive board of Americans for Choice, a pro-immigration reform group founded by former NHGOP chair Fergus Cullen.

Hi there Thread Dummy!

Question for you. We now know there will be a panel of 15 people deciding on Obamacare "rationing".

What were you saying a long time ago about this?

They just tried exercising freedom of speech. Their pleas for help from the outside world - especially the U.S.- were ignored.
It took Obama nine days to respond. By that time, some had been shot and many imprisoned.
Why do you suppose he waited that long?
Maybe if the French had waited to respond to the Patriots' plea for help during the American Revolution, we would've remained under King George's oppression a lot longer.
Just a timely response by this president would have at least been something positive to show our solidarity.
So... who doesn't plead for free speech in your world?

So,you think all sanctions are the same? This shows just how GD stupid you are.
Yep, Bush slapped sanctions. Unilateral sanctions that did nothing. Why didn't other countries join us? Maybe because while Bush was screaming sanctions, Cheney's Halliburton was still working in the country because of loopholes Cheney, as CEO of Halliburton, lobbied for. What good is to try economic sanctions when Cheney's Halliburton is helping them produce more oil to generate more money to fund nuclear ambitions.
Great huh.
Obama worked to get a unified, multilateral sanction networks in place that put the Iranian powers to be in trouble with their masses. These sanctions drove Iran to the table.
Something Bush never could do. You would think after good old George took out Iran's number one enemy, that the Iranians would treat Bush favorably & certainly negotiate. But nope.
Hi Thread Dummy.

Now that we know there was a willful misrepresentation from Obama about ACA and peoples lives are being controlled by your fascist government (Government too powerful, controlling), taking away freedoms, dictating who can have what. "You can keep your doctor",

what do you fascists say to the people that were lied to by you fascists?
