PLEASE SHARE: Over 200 Ex-Generals And Admirals Say Iran Deal Risks War

Iran Deal: At least 214 former generals and admirals signed a letter warning that President Obama's Iran nuclear pact could bring war. It counters less than a quarter of that number publicly supporting the deal.
President Obama claims that the opponents of his surrender to Iran are neocon warmongers, "the same people who argued for the war in Iraq."
But the 214 and counting retired military brass who signed an open letter to the leaders of both parties in the two houses of Congress, urging rejection of the agreement, belie that claim. And their emergence upends a previous letter supporting the deal, signed by a fraction of this number of generals.
One of the signatories of that earlier letter, retired Joint Chiefs member Marine Gen. James Cartwright, was close to Obama and is now the subject of a federal investigation into whether he leaked national security secrets to the media.
Those signing the letter opposing the deal include Air Force Gen. Lance Smith, a decorated combat fighter pilot who was NATO's Supreme Allied Commander for Transformation; Air Force Gen. James Davis, who was chief of staff for the Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Powers, Europe; and the organizer of the letter, decorated Navy combat aviator and former vice chief of naval operations, Adm. Leon "Bud" Edney.
Their missive blasts virtually everything that Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry assert about the consequences of the deal.
"Removing sanctions on Iran and releasing billions of dollars to its regime over the next ten years is inimical to the security of Israel and the Middle East," the 214 generals and admirals argue.
