John Bolton, former United Nations Ambassador, stated that President Obama is negotiating “an unprecedented act of surrender” with Iran, as reported by the The Hill. “This deal is fundamentally flawed … There really is no deal I’d trust Iran with. It is a regime determined to have nuclear weapons and this deal will give it to them,” Bolton condemned.
In exchange for removing economic sanctions, the Obama administration hopes Iran will slow nuclear armaments research. The Obama administration has received aid from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia in efforts to bargain with Iran.
But an open letter sent by the Republicans to Iran’s leadership, revealed this week ignited controversy. The letter signed by 47 GOP senators stated:
“What these two constitutional provisions mean is that we will consider any agreement regarding your nuclear-weapons program that is not approved by the Congress as nothing more than an executive agreement between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei. The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”
The letter affirmed that Congress can void any deal it finds unsatisfying and was signed by 47 GOP senators. According to The Hill, President Obama was “embarrassed” for the message’s signers.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) criticized the Ayatollah’s regime Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,”:
“They’ve been killing Americans for 35 years, they’ve killed hundreds of troops in Iran, now they control five capitols in the Middle East … They are nothing but hard-liners in Iran, and if they do all of those things without a nuclear weapon, imagine what they would do with one.”
As Rudy Giuliani stated in his speech at the International Women’s Day Conference in Berlin this month, “Obama’s negotiations with Iran are ‘extremely reckless’. The Obama administration is racing to meet their self-imposed deadline of March 24.
