Kerry One of Only 26 Senators Who Refused to Sign Letter Calling for End to Iran’s Nuclear Program

What’s extraordinary here is that this is a bipartisan letter initiated by three senators. Joe Lieberman, Kelly Ayotte and Bob Menendez. One independent, one Republican and one Democrat is as close to bipartisan as it gets. And there really is nothing all that controversial in this letter, which has four points.

The first point states that the closure of the Iranian nuclear issue requires the closure of the Fordow plant and IAEA inspections. The second point calls for tightening sanctions. The third point calls for Obama to with European and Middle Eastern allies in an international coalition to stop Iran if it gets too close to achieving nuclear weapons capability. And the fourth calls for outreach to the Iranian people and support for democracy in Iran.

The letter was signed by 74 Senators. Nevertheless Kerry became one of only 26 Senators not to sign it. Other Senators who refused to sign were Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Dick Durbin, Diane Feinstein, Rand Paul, Daniel Akaka, Jeff Bingaman, Bernie Sanders and Sheldon Whitehouse.

    This much is for sure – an anti-American POTUS would only appoint others of similar bent to the highest positions. Therefore, it would be a shock if he signed the letter!

    Radical revolutionaries travel in packs, and it was no accident that fellow Alinskyite, Hill, was picked as Sec of State and Eric Holder as AG. It was also no accident that the same POTUS sang the praises of Huma Abedin too.

    And his pick of Hagel -whether or not he gets confirmed – is of piece with his radical ideology. As such, his regime is bursting with anti-Americans –… their protestations to the contrary.

      They mentioned other Senators who wouldn't sign this letter. Reid, Boxer, Feinstein, and Durbin all have a past of belonging to Marxist/Communist organizations! In fact, Durbin is a paying member of the American Communist Party! And Kerry is the Richist member of both houses of Congress & both Parties! How does this SCUM get into control of our great nation!

      A poster on another forum said Valerie Jarrett was raised an Iranian.

      I wish I could find verification or a source on that.

        She did spend some time in Iran when she was younger, yes. I forget where I saw that.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        It's widely reported she was born there. I didn't know she was also "black," but that's what the report there says. Whatever.

        She was raised a leftist that's for sure. What kind of connections does she maintain in Iran? We won't be surprised, whatever the extent.

    Wow, Kerry's a bigger idiot than Bob Menendez.
