U.S., allies offered secret concessions to #Iran in nuclear deal 

The Obama administration and its allies cut a “secret” agreement allowing Iran to evade key restrictions under last year’s nuclear deal so Tehran would be able to receive major sanctions relief by the deal’s deadline, according to a report Thursday that put the White House on the defensive again about the controversial deal.The report from the Institute for Science and International Security — a think tank run by a prominent former U.N. weapons inspector — said loopholes have been created to allow Iran to exceed limits set by the actual deal on the amount of uranium it can keep on hand in its various nuclear facilities.Republicans were quick to jump on the report from the respected think tank, which comes as Iran’s military has staged a series of aggressive challenges to the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf and Mr. Obama was already under fire for his handling of a prisoner swap with Tehran in January that coincided with the payment of a major settlement to Iran.
