Cotton Statement on the Revelation that Iran will be Permitted to Inspect its Own Nuclear Facilities

August 20, 2015
Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the revelation that Iran will be permitted to inspect its own nuclear facilities:

"Allowing Iran to inspect its own nuclear facilities is reckless and illustrates yet again that this deal is little more than a dangerous list of concessions made by the United States. It is akin to allowing an NFL player to submit their own samples for drug testing. This revelation should be the last straw for any undecided Members of Congress. Put aside the billions we will give back to the ayatollahs to fund terror. Put aside the sanctions relief given to terrorist chief Qasem Soleimani. Put aside that this agreement legitimizes Iran as a nuclear threshold state within 10 to 15 years. Entrusting Iran to verify itself turns what is a bad deal into a farcical one. And the only ones laughing are the ayatollahs."
