- US Will Scrap Iran Deal to Continue Regime Change Policy – Former US Diplomat
US President Donald Trump has a May 12 deadline to extend or rescind the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran Nuclear Deal. Most analysts believe the president will cancel it. Trump announced on Monday he will announce his decision on the deal Tuesday afternoon at the White House.
Former US Army Colonel and State Department official Ann Wright, who resigned from the State Department one day before the United States invaded Iraq in 2003 to protest the invasion, joined Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear to discuss Trump’s dismissal of important evidence.
“This very comprehensive agreement with six countries has been totally dismissed by President Trump as he did dismiss it as a candidate,” Wright told Loud & Clear hosts John Kiriakou and Brian Becker. “It is very disturbing that none of his advisors, those people that have been in government for a long, long period time, have not been able to convince him of the importance of keeping this agreement.”
