The World Will Pay a Heavy Price for a Naïve Deal with Iran

“A regime so committed to supporting terrorism, furthering instability across the region, violently oppressing its own people, threatening U.S. national security, and destroying Israel cannot be trusted. Let’s not allow America to make that mistake.”

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement today after the Administration announced a framework for a nuclear deal with Iran.

“The Administration’s preliminary nuclear agreement with Iran only further indicates the regime’s unwillingness to curb its nuclear program.  These parameters – and the delay tactics that accompany them – will not stop Iran’s terrorist aggression, sowing chaos throughout the region.  As these negotiations were underway, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, gave approval to crowds chanting ‘Death to America!’ on the streets of Iran.  

“A regime so committed to supporting terrorism, furthering instability across the region, violently oppressing its own people, threatening U.S. national security, and destroying Israel cannot be trusted.  If we lift the sanctions – a decision that must be reviewed by Congress – we are funding missiles aimed at Israel and Iranian surrogate forces in Lebanon, Iraq and Syria.  The world pays a very heavy price for a naïve negotiation with a known state sponsor of terrorism.  Let’s not allow America to make that mistake.”

Earlier this week, Rep. McMorris Rodgers wrote an op-ed addressing the Administration’s negotiations with Iran. Click here to read her op-ed on CNN.com.
