John Kerry exhibited outrage over a letter sent to the Iranian government by Congressman Tom Cotton
From The Boston Globe:
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John F. Kerry said Wednesday he was in “utter disbelief” when he read a letter from 47 Senate Republicans to Iran threatening to unravel a nuclear arms pact being negotiated by the Obama administration. He called it an unprecedented break from centuries of congressional action and a threat to US foreign policy.
In the letter written Monday by Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, the signatories threatened to undo any deal between the two countries to curb Iran’s nuclear program if the agreement is not approved by Congress. Addressed as ”An Open Letter to the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran,’’ it warned that any deal negotiated by the current White House could be reversed by a new president “with the stroke of a pen’’ in as little as 22 months.
However, during the Reagan years, he attempted to negotiate directly with the communist Sandanistas in Nicaragua, going around Henry Kissinger and the State Department.
What then Senator John Kerry did with Nicaragua bordered on treason, just like President Obama’s wanting to allow Iran to get one step closer to having a nuke, because Kerry’s aim back then, was to be nice to communists who were wreaking havoc in Nicaragua.
Fortunately, the Sandanistas were defeated. To understand how this matters, there would be no HGTV episodes of house hunters looking for an eco-home in Nicaragua, because the communists/socialists would have nationalized all property, like Fidel Castro and his brother nationalized all property in Cuba. Notice how there are no HGTV episodes of hipsters looking to amke an island eco-home anywhere in Cuba, or North Korea?
