Pompeo: Iran Nuclear Deal is Not Foreign Policy -- It's Surrender


Date: July 14, 2015
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS) today released the following statement after the President announced an agreement reached between the United States and Iran that will allow Iran to develop a nuclear arsenal.

"The deal reached today between the Obama administration and Iranian leaders is an unconscionable arrangement that increases the risk to Kansans and all Americans. The Iranian regime is intent on the destruction of our country. Why the President does not understand is unfathomable.

"Instead of taking advantage of crushing economic sanctions to end Iran's nuclear program, the administration negotiated a deal against the will of the American people that does nothing but give Iran leverage and enable this totalitarian regime to continue growing its terrorist practices.

"This deal allows Iran to continue its nuclear program -- that's not foreign policy; it's surrender.

"This deal will have dramatic and negative consequences on our national security for generations to come. It is wholly unacceptable that the President has chosen to place the safety of the American people at such high risk with today's agreement."
