Clinton Misled On Her Weak Stance On Iran

During the debate tonight, Clinton misled on her record on Iran. She touted sanctions passed by Congress during her tenure as Secretary of State but failed to mention that her State Department fought tooth and nail to water those sanctions down.

Additionally, Clinton has supported and defended the Iran deal even though it led to an increasingly aggressive Iran. Since the deal, Iran has harassed U.S. ships and detained U.S. sailors. Compounding the problem, the Iran deal made it easy for the country to continue developing its ballistic missile program. Finally, almost as if it was admitting the failure of Clinton’s Iran deal, the U.S. State Department rated Iran the world’s “foremost” state sponsor of terror for 2015.
