I think the Iranians are telling their people (in press releases) one thing, and doing what they have to do with the world, as the the real thing.
Why would the entire world trumpet this deal as a historical change in Iran's direction if it was not?
I bet the Ayatollahs are pissed...

The 'death panel' argument was not a new argument; its been brought up before, and most of the people in-the-know, knew that it had to happen.

I remember when healthcare was first being debated, and i talked with several of my radiologists about the matter. They all said the same thing: "death panels", as we colloquially now refer to them, have to be a part of any meaningful health care legislation.
There is this exam we do in Radiolog...
