Will Hurd is fighting to keep America secure.

When I served as an undercover officer in the CIA I collected intelligence on Iran’s nuclear program. So I can say from first-hand experience that Iran is trying to acquire a nuclear weapon and they cannot be trusted under any circumstances. This deal does not stop Iran from reaching its goal and does not hold them accountable to the degree that’s necessary. Not only should it be rejected, but additional sanctions should be placed on Iran until they come back to the negotiating table and agree to terms that allow ‘anytime, anywhere’ inspections, the complete dismantlement of dual-use facilities and recognize Israel’s right to exist. And for those who claim that our European allies will choose to trade with Iran rather than help us reinstate sanctions should give serious consideration to what that says about how this administration’s foreign policy has degraded our standing in the world.
