Loudermilk: Iran Cannot Be Trusted

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after reports of the Obama administration releasing $400 million to Iran earlier this year:

"The United States does not negotiate with terrorists. Unfortunately, it appears that the President did not get that memo. On the very same day American hostages were freed in Tehran, the Obama administration reportedly sent Iran $400 million in cash. Iran has proven repeatedly that they are anti-America and cannot be trusted; yet our own State Department seems determined to empower them in every way possible. We must gather all the facts in this situation, and someone must explain to the American people why our government feels compelled to assist a nation that has vowed repeatedly to destroy America and our allies. We simply cannot tolerate the incentivizing of terrorist activities.”
