Cruz: "Administration gave Iran a win and sold out our Israeli allies"Submitted by sbar07 on Mon, 11/25/2013 - 20:32
Just saw this tweet (https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/405128215837954048) from Ted Cruz:
With Iran, the administration has gotten it backwards and it is time to reverse course before further damage is done.
I was somewhat surprised, but mostly just disappointed as my skepticism of Cruz seems to be confirmed. :(
According to the interim agreement regarding Iran's nuclear program that was reached this weekend in Geneva, not one centrifuge will be destroyed. Not one pound of enriched uranium will leave Iran. Not one American unjustly detained in Iran's notorious prisons will be released. But Iran will start to receive, in a matter of days, $7 billion in relief from international economics sanctions.
This appears to be an unfortunate case of history repeating itself. As happened with North Korea in 1994, fascination with the negotiation process has blinded American diplomats to the true nature of their negotiating partners. Substantive sanctions relief has been exchanged for vague promises that the growth of a nuclear program will be curbed.
