Wednesday at the Senate Armed Services Committee on the Iran nuclear agreement, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said it was his “military advice” that under no circumstances should the sanctions on weapons and ballistic missiles be lifted for Iran which is now part of the Obama administrations nuclear deal with Iran.
Discussing the five- and eight-year lifting of sanctions on weapons and ballistic missiles, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) asked General Dempsey, “You said under no circumstances should we relieve pressure on Iran on those issues. So was it your military recommendation that we not agree to the lifting of those sanctions?”
Dempsey answered, “Yes that was my military advice.”
