Senators: Don't Attack Rex Tillerson for Opposing Some Sanctions on Iran
Just Foreign Policy
Urge Senators not to attack Rex Tillerson for opposing some sanctions on Iran.
Secretary of State-designee Rex Tillerson is being attacked by Marco Rubio, who wants more confrontation with Iran, for having opposed some sanctions on Iran in the past. Unfortunately, some Democratic groups, like American Bridge, are opportunistically supporting Rubio's attack.
Urge your Senators not to attack Secretary of State-designee Rex Tillerson for having previously opposed some sanctions on Iran, by signing our petition at MoveOn.
Every Member of Congress, Democrat or Republican, who supported diplomacy with Iran to address the issue of Iran's nuclear program at some point opposed some sanctions on Iran or sought to limit some sanctions on Iran. The Obama Administration opposed some sanctions on Iran and sought to limit some sanctions on Iran. Every NGO that supported diplomacy with Iran opposed some sanctions on Iran and sought to limit some sanctions on Iran. In particular, all these actors sought to limit sanctions on Iran so that they could be lifted if a diplomatic agreement with Iran on its nuclear agreement could be achieved, in order to make an agreement with Iran possible. It was common sense that if the goal of sanctions were to pressure Iran to negotiate an agreement, then Iran should believe that in the event of an agreement, those sanctions would be lifted.
Urge Senators to oppose opportunistic attacks on Rex Tillerson related to Iran sanctions by signing and sharing our petition.
