Sec. Tom Ridge: Dangerous deal with Iran’s mullahs

NCRI – Speaking on the sidelines of a major protest against the Iranian regime’s President Hassan Rouhani outside the United Nations building in New York, on Monday September 28, Tom Ridge, former U.S. Homeland Security Secretary and Governor of Pennsylvania told The Blaze that U.S. President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with the Iranian regime could make the world less safe. width=”560″ height=”315″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”> 

Secretary Ridge warned that Obama’s deal with the regime in Iran, which would last 10 to 15 years and allow for enrichment of non-weapon grade uranium, also includes a massive easing of sanctions that could result in more terrorisms in Europe and the United States.

“You better believe there will be individuals… that will bring their form of terrorism back to Europe and ultimately some of them may find their way to the United States,” he told The Blaze.

He also urged Obama to live up to “America’s word” to ensure the protection of thousands of Iranian dissidents, members of the main opposition group PMOI (MEK), in Camp Liberty, Iraq.

Secretary Ridge, who was the first United States Secretary of Homeland Security from 2003 to 2005, also served as the 43rd governor of the state of Pennsylvania.
