Obama Admin Will Not Reveal to Congress Number of Americans Killed By Iran
Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 18, 2015 | Adam Kredo

Posted on 09/18/2015 6:19:03 AM PDT by don-o

The Obama administration is declining to inform Congress about the number of American citizens and troops killed by Iran and its terror proxies, according to a document provided to Congress and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The administration was repeatedly asked by Congress to release figures describing how many Americans and Israelis have been killed by Iran’s military and terror activities since the country’s 1979 revolution.

In a series of on-the-record responses obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon, and provided in written form to Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), Kerry sidestepped the questions on all of the three separate occasions he was asked to provide the figures.

In the list of questions submitted to Kerry, Rubio asks: “How many U.S. citizens have been killed by Iran, including by Iran’s terrorist proxies, since 1979?”

The secretary of state declined to provide an answer, instead saying that the administration takes the murder of American citizens “very seriously.”

It’s worth shutting down the government to get that answer. Lets see how they would spin that.

Imagine if Bush or Nixon had done this.

"Sir, the nightly body counts on TV are eroding support for the war. What should we do?"
"From now on, casualty figures are classified information. No more TV reporting of casualties. Got it?"

Pick a number Redumblicans, run with it, and let Odunga refute it. I’ll go with 75,000, it’s now part of internet lore, therefore it must be true.

My opinion is that any soldier killed by an IED that was an EFP was killed by Iran. They supplied the expertise to build them and there are web reports they supplied the ingots, to boot.

That provides a welcome, sufficient cover for McConnell, Boehner, and the Republican caucus.

Of course this Muslim administration takes killing Americans “very seriously”.

It kills as many as it can every day, day in and day out.

It plots to kill Americans, day in and day out.

It was put on this earth by the heathan Allah to kill American so it thinks, so day in and day out, that is what it does, seriously.

Wow! Over 75,000 Americans killed by Iran or the groups they sponsor? No wonder Lurtch and Obummer won’t talk about it.

the number is close to 600 killed and thousands maimed and disabled...
I never understood why knowing that the qud force/iran was supplying the ieds abd supporting sadr, we didnt retaliate against iran.. that gave us the open door to level the radical islamic leadership and eliminate the quds top down...
WE THE PEOPLE ARE NOT BEING TOLD THE TRUTH OR GIVEN THE FACTS... BY EITHER PARTY

King Obama is a hard core Muslim and his club of communists Administration will not upset his conquest of America. Fear of losing your head is quite an incentive to shut up.

Who needs Congress - the GOPE has shown themselves to be irrelevant and Obie knows it - after all “He has a pen and a phone.” /s

Look for the lawlessness to ratchet up a few more notches over the remaining rein of this lawless little boy king.

There will be a chapter in the history books about this king as well as a uniparty.

This is what we sent these clowns to DC for? Afraid of their own shadow and ready to break out the tears on a moments notice.

Boehner: We Will Not Shut Down the Government

McConnell: 'We Will Not Be Shutting the Government Down'

Obama invites Muslim kid with fake ‘bomb’ to the White House hours after story goes viral

"This is President Obama’s priority problem in a nutshell:

The same man who could wait three days to issue a boilerplate statement about a police officer executed for wearing his uniform wasted no time Wednesday issuing a White House invitation to a Muslim teenager pulled from his classroom Monday for bringing a clock to school that teachers thought looked like a bomb.
