    That's not the same thing. That list was from the National Intelligence director's office and is an outline of direct, current threats to U.S. assets.

    The U.S. State Department has had Hezbollah listed as a terrorist organization since 1997, when it first started listing terrorist organizations.

    You mean to say that Clapper and Obama are at odds with the State Department?

    No, I mean those are two entirely different lists/assessments.

    You seem to be interested in diminishing the significance of this White House removing Iran and Hezbollah from their terrorist list.

    Because there really isn't any significance to it.

    For starters, Iran is still highlighted several times in Clapper's assessment, especially in regards to its nuclear ambitions. However, neither at this time is considered a direct threat to U.S. interests. The state department list is simply a list of terrorist organizations around the world, whether they are a threat to U.S. interests or not.

    As I said, they are two entirely different lists and assessments. That's not "diminishing" anything, that's simply stating fact.

    What's in the Iran nuclear deal?

    Lots words like 'prostitution' 'kickbacks' 'expense accounts' 'first class' 'don't tell spouses' 'always pay cash' 'leave no paper trail'.

    Oops...those are the words that are not in the agreement. The above words are the things that the 'negotiators' do with their spare time.
    'What kind of sick and twisted toy factory is this?'
    'We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away.'

    To the bolded, I disagree, and consider it very significant.

    Why do you consider it significant?

    From a far left liberal, death to America is more habit than conviction. What a basket case.

    On CBS This Morning: Saturday, reporter Elizabeth Palmer did her best to channel the sentiments of Iran following the preliminary nuclear agreement between them and the United States.
