Cotton Statement on President Obama's Remarks at American University

August 5, 2015
Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement in response to President Obama's remarks on the Iran nuclear deal at American University earlier today:

Today President Obama once again presented a false choice between military action and his deeply flawed agreement with Iran. But President Obama is hiding behind this false choice because he knows he can't defend this deal on its merits. No one understands the horrors of war more than a soldier who has fought one. That's why I'm opposed to the President's deal. It will give Iran billions of dollars to finance a terrorist war on Israel and America that it has been waging for over 30 years. And it raises the prospect that in 10 to 15 years, Iran will be able to wage war with a nuclear weapon. Americans deserve a better deal that will deprive Iran of nuclear-weapons capability.
