UN Ambassador Bolton Refuses To Answer Kucinich's Questions About US Troops In Iran

I find it hard to believe that the United States Ambassador to the United Nations does not know about ongoing military activity in one of the world's most volatile regions, and in a country at the heart of current debate before the UN.

Congress has a Constitutional role to play in providing checks and balances of this Administration. Ambassador's Bolton testimony today, and his refusal to answer even the most basic questions about Iran, is just another example of this Administration's contempt of Congress.

This Administration has set our nation on the path to war against Iran.

It has done so without consulting the Congress, and without proper Congressional oversight. Today's hearing could have been an important moment to educate the public and the Congress about this Administration's policy towards Iran, and the role US military is already playing in implementing that policy. Unfortunately, Ambassador Bolton's stonewalling prevent this from happening.

This Administration has set our nation on a very dangerous path with Iran. Congress must intervene before this Administration begins a wider, and far more dangerous war in the Middle East.
