Jennifer Rubin at Contentions raises an excellent point: what ever happened to the deadline that Iran was supposed to meet on its nuclear program? Didn't that "deadline" expire weeks ago?

Actually, Iran met the deadline. The problem is that the Obama administration does not like Iran's response to the deal offered by the United Nations. In the words of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's position is:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday reiterated that his country’s rights on “the nuclear issue” are non-negotiable and its nuclear activities and cooperation happen within the framework of IAEA regulations, according to at report on the Iranian student news agency ISNA.

“Iran is ready for constructive and honest cooperation with western countries in the field of nuclear technology,” he was quoted by ISNA as saying, while warning that the West’s confrontation with Iran only makes the country “more powerful and more developed.”

In other words, the answer is "no" to the United Nations deal. At this point, the push for "tough" sanctions should materialize. Instead? President Obama warns against "consequences" while Iran builds nuclear facilities.
