Hillary Clinton Blasts Republicans Over Iran Nuclear Letter

5

LIBYA-CLINTON/Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday excoriated Republican senators for their letter warning Iran against a nuclear deal with President Barack Obama, saying they either were trying to help Tehran or harm the U.S. commander-in-chief, Reuters reports.

Monday’s open letter to Iran’s leaders, signed by 47 Republican senators, sparked a political firestorm.

Clinton, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, said the Obama administration is in the midst of intense negotiations for a diplomatic solution to close off Iran’s pathway to a nuclear bomb and provide unprecedented access to its nuclear program.

“And one has to ask, what was the purpose of this letter?” Clinton said in an appearance at the United Nations.

“There appear to be two logical answers. Either these senators were trying to be helpful to the Iranians or harmful to the commander-in-chief in the midst of high-stakes international diplomacy. Either answer does discredit to the letters’ signatories,” Clinton added. Read more here.

  1. Repeat after me:

    Hillary Clinton is no different than Barack Obama.

    Hillary Clinton is no different than Barack Obama.

    Hillary Clinton is no different than Barack Obama.

  2. On March 20, 1984, the Democratic Leader of the House and soon to be Speaker, Jim Wright, and a number of his congressional colleagues, sent a letter to communist leader “Commandante” Daniel Ortega.

    The press gave the “Dear Commandante” letter writers a pass in a way they refuse to give Republicans a pass. It is worth pointing out that the Speaker at the time of this letter was Tip O’Neil whose chief of staff was Chris Matthews. Matthews is now calling on the 47 Republicans to be prosecuted under the Logan Act. Neither he nor his boss objected to the “Dear Commandante” letter.

  3. Corrected comment:

    They sent a letter to one of our clear adversaries and declared their opposition to the President’s foreign policy in the country and their opposition to American military action. Further, the Democrats sought assurances from the regime separate from the assurances and demands of the President’s Administration.
