“Americans are begging for a deal...” So says a high-ranking Iranian military official.
Ordinarily I'd dismiss such talk as posturing twaddle from an entirely unreliable source. These days? It's all too believable that the Obama administration would place more value on the appearance of a deal than on the substance of Iran being armed with nuclear weapons. The more paranoid on the conservative side even posit that Obama wants a nuclear-armed Iran, to counterbalance the nuclear-armed Israel. Is that likely? I don't think so. Is it plausible? Unfortunately, yes. Yes, it is.
