Nothing to see here, folks … except Iran violating its deal with the U.N. on the testing of missiles:

Oh, you want “disturbing”? Well, then check this out. The White House reaction is apparently to give Iran the “ALL CLEAR!” which would lead to sanctions relief as early as next month:

Here’s an excerpt:
The Obama administration is backing a resolution that would formally close an investigation by the United Nations nuclear watchdog into evidence Iran had secretly developed technologies for atomic weapons, according to a draft copy of the document.
The resolution, being discussed by the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 35-nation board of governors, is expected to be passed in the coming week, according to U.S. officials.
Passage could allow the U.S. and other world powers to lift economic sanctions on Iran as early as next month as part of the broader agreement reached last July to curb Tehran’s nuclear program.
“All the activities in the road map for the clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program were implemented in accordance with the agreed schedule and…this closes the board’s consideration of this item,” reads the draft resolution. A senior U.S. official confirmed the language in the document.
Fantastic. Iran violates U.N. resolutions and get a big, juicy reward from team Obama.
