sanctions irrelevant?

Reader comment on item: Thoughts on the P5+1 Negotiations with Tehran

Were a deal to be agreed upon, the freedom to act would almost certainly be eliminated. And it would appear to me that in order to prevent such a surrender, and thus at least allow those intent on stopping the nuclear program to exercise action in the tenure of a hopefully more favorable future administration, some sort of definitive political disempowerment of the administration is not only desirable but necessary.
