Bennet’s Iran Deal-bolstering bill is a software useless update for a bad OS

 

DENVER—Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and other Democratic co-sponsors, today introduced new legislation meant to bolster the Iran Deal and it won’t contradict anything in the deal, according it its sponsors.

Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:

“Bennet’s rosy support for this optical and thematic illusion is an act of doubling-down on his support for the president’s deal with Iran. The Iran deal is dangerous and this bill does practically nothing to change that fact. This bill is a weak contingency plan and an admission of failure, it has no teeth and it is nothing more than a software update for a bad operating system.”

Members of Congress introduced legislation this week, the Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act, prohibiting sanctions relief for Iran until it pays the $43.5 billion in court-ordered damages it owes to victims of terrorism.

As the Iran Nuclear Deal debate began in Congress, Iran’s “Supreme Leader” said that Tehran will not expand talks with the United States beyond the international negotiations over its nuclear program and “predicted that Israel would not exist in 25 years.”

According to the Associated Press, Khamenei said America remains the “Great Satan” and warned that general cooperation with Washington would allow it to “penetrate” the Islamic republic.

The Associated Press released a shocking report that revealed Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a military site where it is suspected of conducting nuclear weapons work, under the terms of a secret agreement it signed with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

According to Newsweek, the unprecedented arrangement, which would, “involve Iranian personnel providing photos, videos and environmental samples from the Parchin military complex to the IAEA,” has fueled “concerns that the IAEA investigation of Iran’s past work on developing nuclear warheads will amount to little more than a public relations exercise.”

Multiple senior officials have said the Iranian nuclear deal will help the Islamic Republic fund its global terrorist operations. Their terrorist operations include the financial backing of Hamas and other regional groups.
