UPDATE: Puppet Bennet RSVP’s to Iran’s nuclear bomb debut
DENVER—Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., joins the ranks of senators lining up to support the president’s nuclear deal with Iran. His support of announcement comes after staying silent, not holding town halls and having closed-door meetings.
Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:
“Sen. Michael Bennet just RSVP’d to Iran’s nuclear bomb ribbon cutting ceremony and secured for the world a more dangerous future. Coloradans will hold Bennet accountable for his behavior and arrogance throughout the time he stalled on providing a clear position. Legislative phoniness and media reports aside, Bennet will not be known as a leader, but as a weak politician who chose playing the puppet rather than standing up to our lawless president and the leading state sponsor of terror.”
“Our primary objectives are to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon, make sure Israel is safe and, if possible, avoid another war in the Middle East,” said Bennet in a statement that was released first to The Denver Post. “This agreement represents a flawed, but important step to accomplish those goals.”
While Iran unveiled a new surface-to-surface missile, Bennet came to the conclusion that, “there is not a better deal available.”
From the Colorado Statesman:
“A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday found that 55 percent of those surveyed nationally oppose the deal while 25 percent support it, virtually the same results as its Aug. 3 poll despite heavy advertising since then on both sides.”
“While majorities of both the GOP-controlled House and Senate are poised to vote against the agreement, supporters of the multinational accord that aims to curb Iran’s nuclear weapons program are also hoping to get the 41 votes needed to filibuster the bill and prevent it from even getting to a final vote in the Senate.”
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.
The U.N. nuclear watchdog responsible for the oversight of Iran’s implementation of the nuclear deal said “it will run out of money next month” and asked member countries to “increase funding the costs of its monitoring, which will rise to $10 million a year.”
Bennet released the following statement in July:
“We will carefully scrutinize the terms of this agreement. The stakes are high, and the details of this deal matter. A good deal could bring greater stability to the Middle East, more security throughout the world, and help avoid escalation in the region. Congress has an important responsibility in this process, and playing politics right now is the last thing we need.”
