U.S. lawmakers denounce new Obama admin concession to Iran regime

NCRI - Senior United States lawmakers have condemned the Obama's administration's decision to purchase 32 metric tons of the Iranian regime's heavy water, produced from Tehran's nuclear weapons program.

"A satellite flying in space over the American Super Bowl, unprovoked missile launches, the test of a so-called hydrogen bomb and threats to destroy Manhattan. This is just a snapshot of what North Korea has been up to this year alone. Although the circumstances and truth surrounding each of these actions remain murky, it’s probably safe to assume that Iranian experts were on site to witness these latest violations of international law. Why? Because Iranian scientists have been present at nearly every major North Korean missile test for decades," Rep. Poe wrote in The Hill on Wednesday.
