HPSCI Chairman Mike Rogers Calls UN’s Selection of Iran to Serve on Disarmament Committee “Outrageous”

“Iran has been a sponsor of terror for decades, has threatened a key American ally with annihilation, conducts aggressive cyber attacks against the U.S. and our allies, and tried to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in Washington, D.C.  This is a country that has centrifuges actively spinning in an effort to obtain a nuclear weapon. The selection of Iran to serve on the United Nations’ Committee on Disarmament and International Security is outrageous and puts a fox in charge of the hen house.  Placing a patron state of Syria on this committee as the U.N. begins disarmament of Syria’s chemical weapons is a further blow to the credibility of the United Nations.”
