Lessons of 9/11: Iran nuke deal a bad idea


by Lars Larson

America marks the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks today even as the President of the United States celebrates the deal that paves the way to nuclear weapons in Iran.

Now that should make you pause.

Have we learned nothing? 14 years ago it was boarding passes and box cutters that allowed Islamic radicals to murder nearly three thousand Americans on our own soil. You’d think the reaction would have been to make America more secure against attacks.

The same President, who crowed about America’s success in Iraq four years ago, pulled all the troops out, allowed the rise of the Islamic state, drew red lines he never intended to enforce and now plans to welcome to America a crowd of Syrian refugees who are likely to include at least a few new Jihadis.

If you’re skeptical of that just remember the attempted bombing of the Christmas tree crowd in Pioneer Courthouse Square by Mohammed Mohammed…home grown terrorist.

Meanwhile in Iran, the centrifuges still spin, under an agreement opposed by 80 percent of Americans and a majority in Congress…an agreement by the way that Secretary of State John Kerry admits he hasn’t fully read.

If you really want to recognize the sacrifices of all those people 14 years ago, call the Democrats who have backed the President’s suicidal plan.
