Obama’s Iran deal was a “horrible and tragic mistake”
And Israeli sovereignty should be respected in Jerusalem.
Fox News contributor and former chairman of Concerned Veterans for America, Peter Hegseth visited Israel this week, looking to learn firsthand about the Arab-Israeli conflict and life in the Jewish state.
“Seeing is believing and it is therefore critical that as many people of all backgrounds are encouraged to come to Israel,” Hegseth said.
A decorated former US Army officer who served in both Afghanistan and Iraq and a Harvard grad, Hegseth worked with the conservative Manhattan Institute for Police Research and several veterans organizations.
During his visit in Israel, Hegseth blasted last year’s Iranian nuclear deal, calling it a “tragic mistake” that empowered Iran while weakening the West.
“The Iran deal was a horrible and tragic mistake, with historical consequences for the United States and Israel. Barack Obama was obsessed with a deal – a legacy deal – and doesn’t believe the Iranian regime when they say ‘death to America’ and ‘death to Israel’, and he wanted a deal no matter what because he wanted something on his resume that made it look like he contributed to some form of world peace.”
“In reality what he’s done is empower the world’s most vicious sponsor of state-terrorism, a historic enemy of Israel and the United States who is now on a path to a nuclear weapon.”
