Dan Carter - Blumenthal's 'No Comment' on Ransom not good enough
For Immediate Release Contact: Info@CarterForSenate.com
"Iran is the world's foremost state sponsor of terror and
Senator Blumenthal cast the deciding vote that allowed $150 Billion to flow to
their coffers, putting Americans and our allies in danger," said Carter.
"Now we have heard from the Obama Department of Justice that they advised
against the $400 million payment, but the President did it anyway."
"The United States has a long history of not negotiating
with terrorists, not paying ransom and sanctioning rather than giving money to
nation states who view our country as the 'Great Satan' and a sworn
enemy," said Carter.
"Senator Blumenthal wants to have his cake and eat it
too," said Carter. "He wants to tell the voters he's 'concerned,'
tell the media 'no comment,' vote to support this dangerous foreign policy
agenda, and hope nobody figures it all out."
"Putting a price on American lives is dangerous,
negotiating with terrorists is foolish, and giving billions of dollars to a
nation state who would keep Americans hostage in the first place is
irresponsible and embarrassing," said Carter. "Senator Blumenthal
must answer for his support of these policies."
