Skip to comments.Fmr. Kerry Aide: Iran Should Not Be Required to Cease Terrorism Against U.S.
Posted on 01/14/2014 8:22:05 AM PST by ColdOne
Edward Levine, a Kerry confidant who formerly worked on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, lambasted the anti-terror mandate in a recent analysis for the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.
Requiring Iran to cease its terror activities against the United States could harm the negotiations over its contested nuclear program, according to Levine.
This language would mean that if, say, Hezbollah were to explode a bomb outside a U.S. firms office in Beirut, the sanctions would go into effect (because Iran gives financial and other support to Hezbollah) even if Irans nuclear activities and negotiations were completely in good faith, Levine wrote in his analysis. So, once again, the goalposts are being moved.
Levine goes on to say that because the bill does not set a specific time period on Irans terror activities, Irans past support of terrorism might make it impossible for the president ever to make this certification.

This is hitting rock bottom.
“..Requiring Iran to cease its terror activities against the United States could harm the negotiations over its contested nuclear program, according to Levine..”
This is satire, right?? Or hopefully not the normal liberal insanity that is being permitted to destroy our country??
Translation: you can keep giving us money and we will keep terrorizing you in the name of Islam so your defense contractor donors can stay in business until we can get all of Muslim buddies over there to complete the coup with your president’s assistance.
That it is not satire is unreal and frightening.
Jay Carney skipped FOX News James Rosen yesterday when the Gen. Ham news broke, I’m sure Mr. Rosen will be skipped today.
Correct. You see, genius, the whole IDEA is to get Iran to stop supporting terrorist groups.
This idiot's argument is analogous to complaining that a criminal's term of parole are unfair because they require the criminal to refrain from engaging in criminal activity, even if he intends in good faith to get a job.
He should be prosecuted for treason against US if true
Our Founding Fathers would have already lined Cary, Barry and the she-devil up against the wall with a blindfold and cigarette for their t reason ous acts.
I wonder if Kerry has one operating brain cell.
There is no lower level of intelligence in the multiverse.
Except, perhaps, for Baba WaWa.
WTF, you gotta be kidding. This is the Onion, right?
But the article says there IS a specific time period:
One of the requirements of a new bipartisan Iran sanctions bill in the Senate is that President Barack Obama certify Iran has not directly, or through a proxy, supported, financed, planned, or otherwise carried out an act of terrorism against the United States or United States persons or property anywhere in the world during nuclear negotiations with the West.
This is a statesman? This is ‘diplomacy’?
Violence against the USA is a project dear to the heart of the Mohammedan President and his overweight Mohammedan administration. Continuing acts of violence against the USA are probably a requirement from the American “negotiators.”
Bill Bennett this morning was quoting someone who called Obama a “walking moral stain” .... this in regards to his sending our military to die in an effort he did not believe would succeed, etc. Well, the “moral stain” has spread to the backstabbing of Israel ..... and everything Obama is doing in this country. Just read about a family who was kicked off health insurance - kids have brittle bone disease and they went through the hell of the website to get them on Obamacare, now Obamacare has cancelled their policy (WTF?) and they can’t find out why which keeps them from filing an appeal. The “moral stain” on this country is written in the blood on the hands of Obama and his thugs ... Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare .... people have and will continue to die because of the “moral stain” in the WH. Israel will have to take their destiny into their own hands .... Obama will let them swing in the wind while he goes out for another round of golf. No wonder the Dems are trying to change the penalty to something less than death for “treason”.
For most of them I say they know what they are doing. For Kerry, probably not.
I think I agree with him.
The sanctions should be tied to the Nuclear Program alone.
The U.S. leveling Tehran should be tied to Iranian sponsored terrorism.
I think you’ve got it right. Shocked or amazed? I’m not.
Kerry and his treasonous associates continue to mess up U.S. policy.
