Roberts, Moran irresponsible in signing letter to Iran

Roberts, Moran

Shame on Kansas Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran for signing an open letter to the leaders of Iran aimed at undermining nuclear negotiations. Congress has a long, long record of respecting the president’s role in conducting foreign policy. As the saying goes, politics stops at the water’s edge. But with their near-unprecedented action, Roberts, Moran and 45 other GOP senators have attempted to insert themselves in the negotiations, essentially telling Iran and its hard-liners that an agreement wouldn’t be worth anything. The letter was reckless and irresponsible. – Phillip Brownlee
