Dems On President’s Iran Policy: ‘No Response Is In Effect, A Response’
“Leading lawmakers, including supporters of President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, rapped the White House for delaying fresh sanctions on Tehran over its missile program, warning that the move would embolden it to further destabilize the Middle East. The abrupt reversal by the administration came as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani publicly ordered his military to dramatically scale up the country’s missile program if the sanctions went ahead.” (“U.S. Lawmakers Blast Delay on Iran Sanctions,” The Wall Street Journal, 1/02/2016)
[Democrats are s]o frustrated, in fact, that some lawmakers are introducing legislation to ensure the next time Iran violates U.S. or international sanctions in any way, they don’t have to wait on Obama to act. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) is preparing to introduce a bill, along with Rep. Theodore E. Deutch (D-Fla.) and a bipartisan group of co-sponsors, to expedite the procedure for imposing additional sanctions on Iran linked to terrorism, human rights violations, or ballistic missile activities. (“Democrats, Frustrated With Obama On Iran, Float New Sanctions Proposals,” The Washington Post, 1/07/2016)
‘Something Is Wrong Because The Silence Is So Deafening’
REP. STENY HOYER (D-MD):“I am disappointed that the Administration has delayed punitive action in response to Iran’s recent ballistic missile tests. . . . Iran must know with certainty that violating U.N. Security Council resolutions, both inside and outside the scope of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), will be met with serious consequences. . . . The recent missile tests, along with the firing in proximity to a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, raise serious concerns about whether Iran will adhere to the remainder of its commitments under the JCPOA.”(Rep. Hoyer, Press Release, 1/02/2016)
REP. JOE KENNEDY (D-MA):“No response is in effect, a response…if responses are nonexistent, ineffective or delayed, those are also responses. . . . there needs to be a mechanism to allow for stronger and more rapid response going forward.” (“Democrats, Frustrated With Obama On Iran, Float New Sanctions Proposals,” The Washington Post, 1/07/2016) LETTER TO PRES. OBAMA FROM SENATE DEMOCRATS:“We are deeply concerned by Iran’s continued violations of UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1929 by testing a second ballistic missile on November 21, 2015. Once again, the international community has an opportunity to demonstrate its resolve in the face of Iranian violations of its international obligations. . . . If there are no consequences for this violation, Iran’s leaders will certainly also question the willingness of the international community to respond to violations of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and UN Security Council Resolution 2231.” (Sen. Casey, Press Release, 12/17/2015) LETTER TO PRES. OBAMA FROM DNC CHAIR REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FL), HOUSE FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE RANKING MEMBER REP. ELIOT ENGEL (D-NY) AND OTHER HOUSE DEMS:“The United States and our allies must take immediate, punitive action and send a clear message to Iran that violating international laws, treaties and agreement will have serious consequences.”(“Democrats, Frustrated With Obama On Iran, Float New Sanctions Proposals,” The Washington Post, 1/07/2016)
