Because THIS guy draws another false equivalence between the torrent of lies he spun selling the #IranDeal and Trump’s meetings that resulted in nothing similar, I’m compelled to call him out in vivid detail as I did in 2015 with this thread for the record 👇🏼
You can follow along with the article I wrote in @TimesofIsrael in 2015, "Framework Iran’ Sequel Leaves Audiences and Critics Confused" in which I demonstrate that at nearly every turn, #Iran's version of the deal was accurate and the White House lied.…
We should recall that in 2015, there was a sizable disagreement between the garbage Ben Rhode's and his #EchoChamber were selling, what Europe was saying, and what #Iran said happened.
The Obama White House lies didn't even begin with the 2015 #JCPOA. Remember what happened with the #JPOA rollout in 2013?
Back then the lie was that the agreement reached with #Iran in 2013 "halts the progress of Iran's nuclear program." Ben Rhodes and Co even held background briefings to lie even further.
But as Ben Rhodes knew, the agreement in 2013 did no such thing. On the contrary, in nearly every single aspect of the JPOA, the Obama White House lied. Name the provision; a White House lie accompanied it.
By 2015, Ben Rhodes and Co were well practiced in lying about the #IranDeal. It began immediately when they couldn't even get the EU onboard with the administration's lies about the timing of sanctions relief for #Iran. Khameini even Twitter-trolled the White House on this point.
In 2013, the White House lied about #Iran's ability to construct at its Arak plutonium reactor.
One of my personal favorite Ben Rhodes lie was in 2013 when his NSC said an Iranian ballistic missile test would “be in violation of the agreement” and cause the deal to “cease to exist.”
Of course, that didn't happen and days later, Iran announced it would launch yet another ballistic missile some 75 miles into the earth’s atmosphere.…
Being caught in such a boldfaced lie might be embarrassing but not if you're Ben Rhodes. @Kredo0 broke the story in 2013 for @FreeBeacon where we discovered the ballistic missile statement by the WH was just another lie. So the WH attacked the press.…
Of course, that was before we all realized that the ENTIRE ballistic missile aspect of the #IranDeal didn't exist at all whatsoever by 2015.
Yet, even more incredible was in 2015 where the Obama White House admitted to the New York Times that they were lying about deal, and #Iran was in on the White House con against the American people.…
And all of these lies Ben Rhodes told occurred within a lie sandwich in which Obama originally promised one kind of deal and then brought back a lemon to season with even more lies. And each time, #Iran was right about the deal.
So no, Ben Rhodes, the snake oil you and your team sold the American people while boosting #Iran throughout the region is not the same thing as Trump or Pompeo's private meetings with world leaders.
To quote Jules from Pulp Fiction, what you and Team Obama did and what Trump and Pompeo did "ain't the same [bleep]in' ballpark, it ain't the same league, it ain't even the same [bleep]in' sport." XX

This is what a #Hamas ceasefire looks like 👇🏼
#BREAKING: In response to over 36 rockets launched from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza, #Israel responded with air strikes. This press release describes what happened. 👇🏼
#BREAKING: At this point some 70 projectiles have been fired from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza today.

Interestingly, #Hamas is right about #Fatah’s intentions.…
#Hamas is not authorized to sign any agreement with #Israel because it has no representative status,” a senior Fatah official in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post. “The Palestinian Authority is the only legitimate party representing the Palestinians.”
What if we just got #Fatah and #Hamas their own Attaché badges like Edward Tavner on the show, Patriot? We could engrave, “Legitimate Palestinian Representative,” on it instead. 💡

Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go.…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas.…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough.…

Exactly. The issue for #Israel is #Iran in #Syria, not the distance from its borders. Iran has precision guided munitions and ballistic missiles that can strike Israel from anywhere in Syria.…
This would be akin to the Soviet Union offering to move it's nuclear weapons from Cuba to Jamaica. It's a non-starter.
To understand #Israel's logic regarding #Iran's military position in #Syria, read the report I co-authored with @JSchanzer and @AcrossTheBay of @FDD, "Controlled Chaos"…

New evergreen Tweet? "Netanyahu asks Putin to remove #Iran's forces from #Syria."

@AcrossTheBay @JSchanzer & I describe the stakes & provide policy options in @FDD's "Controlled Chaos: The Escalation of Conflict between #Israel & Iran in War-Torn Syria"…
The need for our new report and recommendations therein is best summed up two maps indicating today's developments in #Syria:
It's a few hours after Putin & Netanyahu met in #Moscow to discuss the removal of #Iran from #Syria. #Israel responded to the UAV that crossed into its airspace from Syria with strikes at 3 military posts near its border.
