Obama Administration Refuses to Tell Congress Number Of Americans Killed By…

Just how many Americans have been killed by Iran and its terror proxies? This is what Congress wants to know, in fact, they have asked three times! THIS is what Obama’s Administration has to say about it…


You know, you’d THINK we’d be entitled to this information, considering the fact that we’re being forced to accept the crappy Iran nuclear deal.

Basically, the Obama administration is refusing to provide Congress with the number of Americans “killed by Iran and its terror proxies.”

The administration was repeatedly asked by Congress to release figures describing how many Americans and Israelis have been killed by Iran’s military and terror activities since the country’s 1979 revolution.
In a series of on-the-record responses obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon, and provided in written form to Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), Kerry sidestepped the questions on all of the three separate occasions he was asked to provide the figures.

I thought this was the most transparent administration in American history? Isn’t Congress entitled to that information? There can only be one reason the Obama administration is declining to give the details: It won’t help them advance their agenda.

As noted above, Kerry refused to answer the question THREE different times.

In the list of questions, Rubio asked, “How many U.S. citizens have been killed by Iran, including by Iran’s terrorist proxies, since 1979?”

Instead of answering the question, Kerry responded by assuring everyone that they’re taking the threat “very seriously.” So that should clear up concerns.

“The death of any U.S. citizen due to acts of terrorism is a tragedy that we take very seriously,” Kerry wrote. “As the President said in his Aug. 5 speech, a nuclear-armed Iran is a danger to Israel, America and the world.”

“The central goal of the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] is to eliminate the imminent threat of a nuclear-armed Iran,” Kerry continued.

The second time, Kerry wrote, “We are extraordinarily grateful for the service of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, and we mourn the loss of every service member…The JCPOA is not about a change in the broader U.S. relationship with Iran. It is about eliminating the biggest and most imminent threat—a nuclear-armed Iran.”

And the third time, he refused to answer. Again.

“The central goal of the JCPOA is to eliminate the imminent threat that Iran will acquire a nuclear weapon,” Kerry said. “But the JCPOA cannot erase decades of Iranian anti-American and anti-Israeli rhetoric and actions.”

Because of this deal, Iran’s about to have access to roughly $100- $150 billion in frozen assets. I don’t even want to BEGIN to think about what they’re going to do with it. (Financing more terror tunnels for Hamas, perhaps?)

Apparently, neither does the Obama administration.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, an open critic of the Iran nuclear deal, said it best:

“It is unconscionable that the Obama administration is refusing to answer questions on just how many Americans have been killed or maimed by Iran,” he told Free Beacon. “One thing we know— Iran says they will continue their efforts to destroy the United States and its people so one hundred billion dollars will allow Iran to kill and maim multiples of the numbers of Americans they already have killed and maimed, making the Obama administration knowing accessories.”

But seriously. Nothing to see here. All of this is just a giant waste of time. Right Kerry?

Truth be told…does Obama or Kerry even know themselves? I mean, that would require that they care about Americans enough to get a count…sooooo?
