According to a Washington Post report yesterday, a group of bipartisan retired generals and admirals have signed a letter urging Congress to oppose the nuclear agreement with Iran, citing national security concerns as their reason for disapproval:
A group of nearly 200 retired generals and admirals sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security. …
“The agreement will enable Iran to become far more dangerous, render the Mideast still more unstable and introduce new threats to American interests as well as our allies,” the letter states.
The letter, which included signatures from “every branch of service,” was so popular that people “rushed to sign on” before it was sent to Congress:
The opinions expressed in the letter were popular enough that people rushed to sign on, even in the hours before it was sent to Congress. The number of signatories almost doubled between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, copies of the letter showed.
According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, the majority of Americans also believe the Iran deal will make the country less safe.
