Weiner Chides Obama On Saudi Sale
Following news that the Obama administration has notified Congress of plans to sell up to $60 billion in advanced weaponry to Saudi Arabia, Representative Anthony Weiner released the following statement:
“Hiding this in a recess announcement is a sign of how unpopular it is. It’s bad policy that now is further tainted by a shameful process.
“As promised, I plan to introduce a resolution with my colleagues to block this arms deal. Saudi Arabia has not behaved like an ally of the United States. They have a history of financing terrorism, and it is a nation that teaches hate of Christians and Jews. They should not be rewarded with a weapons upgrade.
“Furthermore, this deal would destabilize the Middle East and undermine the security of Israel, our one true ally in the region.”
