    It looks like those overacting Republicans in Congress were right to want to approve the treaty.

    For #7, the lifting of sanctions, it requires modification of the Iran Sanctions Act by Congress.

    Didn't the Iranian Negotiator say we were just lifting them on June 30?

    Re: What's in the Iran nuclear deal? 7 key points

    The Lusanne framework deal (JCPOA) is far more robust than I had originally envisioned. That said, there are definitely areas and issues that need tweaking and/or much better definition ... sanction relief, possible military dimensions (PMDs), and breakout time are among some key issues that either I am not happy with or are currently too murky to pass definitive judgement on.

    Nonetheless, I am surprised that the Iranian negotiators have (tentatively) agreed to such a baseline. This initial framework, in and of itself, will be a difficult sell to hard-liners in Tehran.

    All in all, I think this baseline is robust enough to warrant a continuation of the P5+1/Iran nuclear negotiations under the proviso that they not extend beyond 30 June 2015. Make no mistake though, it is critical that the P5+1 proceed and not recede from this JCPOA baseline.

    In order to terminate them that is correct. However, the president has waiver authority.

    Waiver Authorities: The President retains discretion to temporarily waive several of the financial sanctions on a time-limited basis that would require subsequent renewal. For instance:
    •The imposition of sanctions on any foreign financial institution that processes payments to Iran’s Central Bank and other designated Iranian entities can be waived by the President for a period up to 120 days with the option for successive renewal, upon a determination that such waiver is “in the national security interest of the United States.”
    •With regard to purchasing, or facilitating the issuance of, the sovereign debt of Iran, the President can waive sanctions for a period up to 180 days upon certification that such waiver is “vital to the national security interests of the United States,” with the opportunity for successive periods of renewal.

    The President does have the power to amend or revoke financial sanctions imposed through Executive Order and not tied to a legislative mandate, such as the prohibition on trade in the rial and the keeping of accounts denominated in the rial.

    If he decides to go this route until congress acts it obviously ends when his term does.

    Now we have a deal to discuss instead of baseless speculation.
    Now we have a framework.

    Iran's MO is to stretch it out then renege at the last minute.
