Announcing the new sanctions, President Obama said, "We will continue to enforce these sanctions vigorously. We are going to remain vigilant about it."
The sanctions are being imposed because the ballistic missiles tested by Iran in October are capable of carrying nuclear weapons. But, as Moon of Alabama blog points out, the UN certification on Saturday means that Iran does not have nor will it pursue a nuclear weapon. So the point is completely moot.
