Over at the Washington Free Beacon today, Adam Kredo’s report confirms what THE WEEKLY STANDARD has been reporting since the November meeting in Geneva where the P5+1 came to an interim agreement with Iran over its nuclear program: the sanctions relief that the Obama White House offered was worth much morethan the $7 billion administration officials initially claimed.

According to Kredo, it’s more than $20 billion—the sane figure Foundation for Defense of Democracies executive director Mark Dubowitz assessed back in November, before the deal was even struck.
