GOP: Obama Ignores Iranian Expansion to Get Nuclear Deal

At 1 hearing, Sen. Thad Cochran kept at it with Kerry.

“Do you agree with me that the Houthis in Yemen couldn’t last 15 minutes without Iranian assistance?” asked Cochran, R-Miss.

“They’ll in all probability last longer than 15 minutes, but obviously Iranian assistance is important,” Kerry answered.

“Do you agree with me that Assad is a puppet of the Iranian regime? Cochran asked.

“Pretty substantially,” Kerry stated.

“Do you agree with me that Hezbollah is a subcontractor of the Iranian regime?” Cochran asked.

“Totally,” Kerry answered. He then insisted the administration is not looking the other way. “We’re not oblivious to these tentacles,” he said.
