Intelligence chief confirms Iran deal is a dangerous trick to fund terrorism

DENVER–Today, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee that Iran sees the president’s so-called Iran Deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is a dangerous trick that will help Iran maintain its strong nuclear infrastructure, while removing sanctions that get in their way.

The agreement was signed in July and implemented on Jan. 16, giving Iran an estimated $50 billion to $150 billion in sanctions relief. Experts say Iran’s objective throughout negotiations was to ensure the removal of sanctions while retaining nuclear weapons capabilities.

President Obama’s administration says the deal ensures Iran cannot obtain a nuclear weapon and is at least a year away from producing one. Secretary of State John Kerry recently admitted too, that “some” of the sanctions relief will fund terrorism.

Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:

“We are seeing the truth come out on the Iran deal, unfortunately after it has already been implemented. Government officials are admitting the Iran deal will fund terrorism and that the deal will allow Iran to continue their pursuit toward nuclear warfare. Coloradans opposed the Iran deal from the beginning, and we are only going to continue to oppose this dangerous foreign policy.”
