We are getting a very interesting look into the mind of the left.
The other day the Associated Press reported on a new revelation inside the Iran deal. According to the Associated Press, the United Nations is going to let Iran inspect its own nuclear sites. The Associated Press is standing by the story.
But after first reporting it, the AP released a summarized story that left out those deals. Left wing groups immediately pounced and declared that the AP was retracting its story without doing so. Actually, the AP announced it was just a summarized story, released the whole story again, and stands by the story.
Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a site it has been accused of using to develop nuclear arms, operating under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press.
The revelation on Wednesday newly riled Republican lawmakers in the U.S. who have been severely critical of a broader agreement to limit Iran’s future nuclear programs, signed by the Obama administration, Iran and five world powers in July. Those critics have complained that the wider deal is unwisely built on trust of the Iranians, while the administration has insisted it depends on reliable inspections.
Now that it is standing by its story after a day of sustained attacks from the left that the AP first retracted it, then got it wrong, then got it from an old side deal that is no longer a deal, the left has had to move on to something else.
According to left wing spin now, the AP got the story right, but they were fooled. The deal they reported on was actually forged by Jews.

It is worth noting that the White House has not refuted the Associated Press’s report.
The only people who are, are outside leftwing groups who oppose strong American-Israeli ties, which again suggests they know the deal will be bad for Israel and good for Iran’s nuclear ambitions. It is also amazing that Congress would consider even approving this deal when so much about it is still unknown or hidden.
