> Put U.S. Security Interests First
>
> Senate Majority Leader John J. Flanagan today urged the entire New
> York congressional delegation – - including the state’s junior senator
> Kirsten Gillibrand – - to put the safety and security of America and its
> allies first by voting “NO” on the pending Iran nuclear deal negotiated by
> President Obama and the leaders of Iran.
>
> Flanagan also called on Senator Chuck Schumer, New York’s senior
> senator in Washington and someone who has often been mentioned as a
> potential future Democratic leader of the body, to use his clout to
> encourage the state’s delegation and other Democrats to vote down the deal.
>
> “New York’s entire congressional delegation must stand together and
> reject this shortsighted agreement. This ‘deal’ would put our state, our
> country and our steadfast ally Israel at great risk, and is really no deal
> at all. Any pact with Iran must ensure the safety and security of those
> living in the region and our people here at home, first and foremost,”
> Senator Flanagan said.
>
> Despite the fact that key proposals which may have prevented Iran
> from getting nuclear weapons were removed from the final agreement and
> Senator Schumer has said he’d vote against it, Gillibrand recently signaled
> she was inclined to support the deal.
>
> “I give Senator Schumer credit for doing the right thing and putting
> his state before his party. Saying that he’ll vote ‘no’ is a good first
> step, but it’s not enough. He must aggressively rally reticent Democrats
> in New York and across the country to this cause,” Senator Flanagan said.
>
> Senator Tom Croci, the Chairman of the Senate’s Veterans, Homeland
> Security and Military Affairs Committee and a U.S. Navy commander, echoed
> Flanagan’s comments.
>
> “I urge New York’s entire congressional delegation to join
> Congressman Lee Zeldin, and now Senator Chuck Schumer, in a bipartisan
> effort to reject President Obama’s proposed deal with Iran,” said Senator
> Croci. “Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. They
> brutally repress their own population and support surrogate terrorist
> groups who are actively engaged in killing Americans worldwide. With
> nuclear capabilities, America is handing a fundamentalist regime the tools
> of Armageddon. New York State is the number one target worldwide for
> terrorism, so this agreement will have a direct impact on the security of
> every one of our constituents. Approval of this flawed agreement will
> further increase the risk to New Yorkers and Americans nationwide.”
>
> A recent Monmouth University poll backed up Senator Flanagan’s
> position on the proposed nuclear pact, showing that 41 percent believe Iran
> got more of what it wanted from the deal, while only 14 percent believe the
> United States did.
