Iranian officials have repeatedly said that Tehran would stick to the nuclear accord as long as the other signatories respected it. But it has warned about the consequences if the deal falls apart. "We will never accept their bullying over the nuclear deal ... Americans are using all the wickedness to damage the result of the nuclear talks," Khamenei said to chants of "Death to America" by students. "Any retreat by Iran will make America more blatant and impudent ... Resistance is the only option."

"The American president's foolish remarks against our people show the depth of America's hostility towards the entire Iranian nation," Iran's top authority Khamenei told a group of students.

"America is the number one enemy of our nation."

The CIA has released hundreds of thousands of new documents, images, and computer files recovered during the May 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad.

One 19-page file in the cache of documents contains a senior al-Qaeda militant's analysis of the group's relationship with Iran.

According to the author's version of events in the 19-page dossier, Iran had offered some ‘Saudi nationals' of al Qaeda all the support they needed in terms of ‘money', ‘arms' and ‘training' at Hezbollah camps in Lebanon, in exchange for targeting installations of American interest in the Gulf region.

Iranian intelligence agencies arranged the travel of some operatives, and provided shelter to others. Abu Hafs alMauritani, a radical with considerable influence in militant circles, helped facilitate the provision of safe houses for his al-Qaeda colleagues inside Iran.

Bin Ladin wrote a letter to his followers saying Iran was the organisation's "main artery for funds, personnel, and communication".

Well, well, well....

The Iranian nuclear agreement was very focused in its goal, which it largely met and is meeting, according to the international inspectors.

Yup, Iran is doing other evil things. There's never been a question about that.

But those other evil things were not covered in the nuclear deal.

So, instead of complaining and whining, Pres Trump should be putting together an international coalition to stop Iran from doing those other evil things.

I suspect, however, that Pres Trump thinks that it is easier for him to just deflect, whine and blame others, instead of actually doing something useful.

A black President struck the deal. So Trump has to oppose it. That's literally Trump's foreign and domestic policy.

Conservatives are simple creatures.
