Your guess is as good as ours.

Did anybody expect anything else?

The nuke “deal” that the Obama administration is celebrating isn’t being heralded the same way in Tehran:

In an speech at a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”, Khamenei said he wanted politicians to examine the agreement to ensure national interests were preserved, as Iran would not allow the disruption of its revolutionary principles or defensive abilities.

An arch conservative with the last word on high matters of state, Khamenei repeatedly used the phrase “whether this text is approved or not”, implying the accord has yet to win definitive backing from Iran’s factionalised political establishment.

Ayatollah Khamenei doesn’t sound like a very good “deal partner” (paging John Kerry):

At least he changed “death” to “down.” See, the deal’s already made progress!

And remember, Susan Rice recently said that the lifted sanctions means we can expect a portion of those funds to go towards terrorism.

That sounds about right.
