Former Republican Congressman from Florida, Allen West has a lot to say after the agreement between the U.S. and allies with Iran over their nuclear weapons program.
West feels the deal with Iran is absolutely horrible and explained how even the prime minister of Israel felt it was a disaster of a deal. “The Saudis have said this is bad, and they’re looking at working with Israel. The prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, said that this was a disaster of a deal.”
On Tuesday during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, Sec. of State John Kerry explained how the Iran deal made the national security of the United States, Isreal, and Middle East a lot more secure and stable.
Allen West felt different however… He said Kerry’s remarks are “delusional.” “I don’t understand how he could say it improves the national security of the Gulf States, of Israel. And, definitely not ours.”
He also felt that Obama’s reasoning behind supporting the agreement with Iran was to build a foreign policy legacy. “I think that the president is looking for some foreign policy success. There is no doubt that the reset button with Russia has been a failure,” he said. “There is no doubt that we see what is happening with Syria was a failure.”
Well said, Allen West!
