Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) condemns Obama Regime’s ‘adversarial’ stance towards Israel, says White House is ‘Iran’s lobbyist’
Franks contradicted a recent claim by Israel’s ambassador to the US that US Secretary of State John Kerry wasn’t threatening Israel when he warned of boycotts in the event that current negotiations with the Palestinian Authority fall through. Franks said that Kerry’s boycott remarks sounded like “a veiled threat”, and expressed his “outrage” over what he saw as the White House’s backwards foreign policy in the Middle East.
The conference, entitled “American Security and the Iranian Bomb: Analyzing Threats at Home and Abroad,” saw several prominent members of Congress and former CIA Director James Woolsey discuss the threat posed to the US by the Islamic Republic. Franks said, “It’s outrageous that this administration has become the chief lobbyist for Iran and has now extended them the ability to have a protected protocol going forward to be able to enrich uranium.”
