The case of the missing fatwa, take 6

The invaluable MEMRI observes:

In President Obama’s announcement of the joint statement following the conclusion of the negotiations in Lausanne, he again mentioned the nonexistent fatwa, stating as fact that Iran’s Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons.[1] This assertion by the president is not true. Such a fatwa has never been issued, and to this day no one has been able to show it, as MEMRI has detailed in five reports so far.[2]

The following is the sixth MEMRI report, constituting an update about this nonexistent fatwa.

The whole thing is posted at MEMRI along with the omitted footnotes as “Iranian Regime Continues Its Lies And Fabrications About Supreme Leader Khamenei’s Nonexistent Fatwa Banning Nuclear Weapons.” I call it The Fatuous Fatwa For Dummies, Take 6.

Obama continues repeating the Iranian regime’s lies and fabrications, and the apostle Tom takes it as a sign of his lord and master’s superior wisdom.
