House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., warned in Sunday that the extension of nuclear talks with Iran, which freed up $2.8 billion in frozen oil export revenues for Tehran, means that more money will be funneled to militants in the Gaza strip even as the U.S. works to conclude a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that any Iranian uranium enrichment could trigger a nuclear-arms race in the Middle East.

NCRI - A member of President Barack Obama’s inner circle on Iran says that the Iranian regime has been extending what he calls a “rights creep.” This involves the Iranian regime increasing over time its claims on what it entitled to regarding its enrichment program.

It has previously been suggested that the Rouhani administration and particularly Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif are engaged in a game of skillful diplomacy alongside Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. That is, while Khamenei directs combative rhetoric against the West and fixes the red lines for his negotiators as they discuss Iran’s nuclear program, Zarif gives the impression of willingness to compromise, thus keeping Western powers at the table.

TOWNHALL: When it comes to an agreement with Iran about its nuclear program, no deal is better than a bad deal. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered the news to President Obama this week that a deal was unlikely by the July 20th deadline agreed to at the beginning of talks last September -- which no doubt disappointed his boss, who is desperate for some foreign policy success to point to. But unless Iran is willing to give up its program -- and dismantle the uranium-enriching centrifuges it currently operates and destroy its existing stockpile of heavily enriched uranium -- economic sanctions should not be lifted.
