Coffman Statement on Netanyahu Address
(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) offered the following statement in response to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address to a Joint Session of Congress.
“I stand with Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu in our mutual fight to end the threat of a nuclear Iran,” said Mike Coffman, a Marine Corps combat veteran. “President Obama’s naïve negotiations with Tehran do nothing to strengthen regional and world security and would harm the interests of both the United States and our closest ally in the Middle East. In my four military deployments to the Middle East I have learned to never take the threat of Iran lightly. I fear the President is making that mistake in his negotiations. But after today’s address, you can rest assured Congress will not be rubber stamping this President’s policies toward Iran.”
