Blumenthal: Questions Unasked And Unanswered

Where to begin?

Question: Mr. Blumenthal, who do you regard as being more corrupt, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or present Secretary of State John Kerry?

Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is valiantly attempting to power through yet another stone wall, this one involving the Clinton Foundation. A short while back it was disclosed that Mrs. Clinton’s cover-up accomplices used BleachBit to permanently erase from emails she had sent over a private, poorly secured server data that contained, according to FBI Director James Comey, top secret restricted information. The Clinton Foundation has now come under scrutiny. But Mrs. Clinton is not a lone player in the power game of using public office to advance the prospects of herself, her family or friends. John Kerry, a longtime U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and the present Secretary of State, appears to be following in his predecessor’s footsteps.

When then Senator John Kerry was the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which oversees both the Department of State and the Peace Corps, the Department of State funded a Peace Corps program created by officials from both agencies and Dr. Vanessa Kerry, Mr. Kerry’s daughter, according to official records examined by The Daily Caller.

The Peace Corps then awarded Dr. Vanessa Kerry’s group “now called Seed Global Health — a three-year contract worth $2 million of State Department money on Sept. 10, 2012, documents show.” The Peace Corps, the publication noted, “awarded the money without competition to a nonprofit Kerry created for the program.”

Question: If the Peace Corp and Ms. Kerry’s group had been private Connecticut organizations shuttling tax money about in such a discreditable way when you were Attorney General of the Connecticut, would you have opened an investigation to determine if all relevant laws had been properly observed?

ISIS Islamic warriors are not only terrorists; they are practiced in the brutal art of genocide. ISIS, operating in Mosel in Iraq, has decimated Christians and their churches. According to one of many reports, “In Mosul, Christians were given days to leave their homes or die. Their homes were marked with a Christian symbol giving them notice. Their churches were destroyed. Those who didn't leave after ISIS claimed ownership were cruelly executed or enslaved. Maronite, Greek-Orthodox, Melkite, Armenian, Chaldean and Syrian Orthodox all face genocide in the Middle East.” In early September, CNN reported “ISIS goes global: 143 attacks in 29 countries have killed 2,043.” Last July, Mr. Kerry announced “We Will Meet Obama's Goal of Admitting 10,000 Syrian Refugees by Sept. 30.

Question:  Of the 10,000 immigrants, how many were persecuted Christians? According to a CNSNews report, “1,037 Syrian Refugees Admitted in May: Two Christians, 1,035 Muslims."

In February, 2015,  the Daily Mail produced a map showing the spread of ISIS, Mr. Obama’s JV team, throughout  the Middle East and North Africa: “It has conquered regions of Iraq, Syria and recently Libya while building a terrifying support structure in Turkey, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt's Sinai Province, Afghanistan, Tunisia and Algeria.”

Following the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Iran -- formerly friendly to the United States, but since then actively hostile to both the United States and Israel -- remains the primary exporter of terrorism in the Middle East. As you know, Mr. Obama ended a successful multi-country embargo against Iran and concluded an  unsigned “deal” with the country that regards the United States as “The Great Satan” and Israel as a non-country that must be destroyed.

We cannot call the deal a treaty because treaties are signed documents approved by the U.S. Congress, and the unsigned deal arranged between Iran’s Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei and Obama was never submitted to you or your Congressional colleagues for approval.

You were present in Congress when Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the Congress and warned that the deal would be injurious to countries in the Middle East, Israel and the United States. We have recently learned that $1.7 billion in cash and gold was secretly sent by the Obama administration to the mullahs in Iran, after which the country returned to the United States several American captives – after which Iran secured more American captives. Iran also has boarded an American vessel and held American military personnel under arrest, and it continues to harass U.S. warships operating in international waters.

Question: Was Mr. Netanyahu essentially right when he visited the Congress and advised that you, Mr. Blumenthal, should reject a deal you approved?

Question: Do you regard Iran's recent behavior as a crude attempt to provoke an incident that will allow the mullahs in Iran to reject the nuclear deal?

And why should they not repudiate the deal -- now that the Obama administration has lifted an embargo that had “cost the country more than $160bn (£110bn) in oil revenue since 2012 alone,” positioned Iran “to gain access to more than $100bn in assets frozen overseas,” enabled Iran “to resume selling oil on international markets and using the global financial system for trade,” according to a BBC News report filed last January -- AND acceded to ransom demands that, it now appears, were a secret part of Mr. Obama’s nuclear deal with so called Iranian “moderates?   

Mr. Blumenthal’s Republican opponent, Dan Carter, recently has criticized Mr. Blumenthal of dodging a series of debates that might explore these and other important issues. In previous campaigns, Mr. Blumenthal has relied upon a too friendly media and media release narratives he himself has fashioned to escape close scrutiny.
