The Obama administration used "vague" language in its nuclear arms deal with Iran to push it through, says Richard Grenell, a political consultant and former U.S. spokesman at the United Nations.
"We knew that the language on whether or not Iran could continue enriching [uranium] was a problem, and, matter of fact, it really was one of the sticking points," Grenell told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The solution that the Obama administration came up with was to write language that was very nebulous, that was very vague, and it solved both of the problems," he said Monday.
"It was a language [vague] enough where the Iranians could say, 'We win, we get to enrich,' and the Americans could say, 'We win, and they don't get to enrich. We're not explicitly saying it.' We knew that this was going to be a problem. We wrote this language."
Grenell says the Obama administration has no strategies and is mostly about politics.
"Their strategy is just to do whatever [President] George [W.] Bush didn't do. And so, they very much play politics with our national security," he said.
"I'm very uncomfortable when an administration official says things like what else can we do, we don't want to go to war. Well … if you're the leader of the greatest country in the world and you're in charge of our national security, you actually don't say things like that."
