MoveOn.org Statement from Anna Galland, Executive Director of MoveOn.org Civic Action, on news that Senators are trying to undermine Obama’s Iran Deal:
“Democrats like Senators Schumer and Menendez should stop supporting Republican efforts to undermine President Obama’s diplomacy. The last thing our country needs right now is another war. It is shameful and wrong for Senators to intentionally undermine the potential for a negotiated, diplomatic solution. We urge all Senators to avoid action that heightens the risk of conflict.”
CREDO Statement from Becky Bond, Political Director of CREDO
“It’s outrageous that Senators Menendez and Schumer would try to sabotage President Obama when he is in the midst of delicate negotiations with Iran. Any new sanctions against Iran at this point would put us on a path to war. Virtually the only Americans who want another war of choice in the Middle East appear to be a group of out-of-touch politicians from both parties in Washington DC. CREDO will hold any politician — whether Republican or Democrat — accountable who ties the hands of the White House in negotiating peace with Iran and pushes us into another unnecessary and costly war.”December 19, 2013
