Franks Criticizes Obama on Handling of Iran

In a blistering 25-minute speech delivered last night on the floor of the House of Representatives, Arizona Congressman Trent Franks criticized the Obama Administration for waiting too long to address the threat of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons. According to Franks:

“I believe Israel knows a very inconvenient truth when it comes to a nuclear armed Iran: if we are to prevent, we must preempt. The choice with Iran is no longer a choice between the way the world is now, and the way the world might be after a military strike to prevent them from gaining nuclear weapons. Rather, the choice now is between what the world will be like after a preventative military strike on Iran, or what the world will be like after Iran gains nuclear weapons.”
