Rob Hotakainen’s May 2 article, Rubio: Lifting sanctions on Iran may threaten Israel, is misleading.
If you watch Sen. Marco Rubio’s complete speech on C-SPAN on April 29, his main objective is to be assured by the White House that the United States and Iran have the same deal in place. At present, there are many discrepancies. The most important difference is lifting all sanctions immediately (per Iran) or gradually (per the United States).
This discrepancy and others can be confirmed by viewing an interview on Charlie Rose with Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on the same date that Rubio gave his speech, April 29.
