John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., sounded off tonight on the news that Iran and Hezbollah were omitted from the latest U.S. terror threat list.
This year’s Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities doesn’t include Iran or Hezbollah in the terrorism section. Catherine Herridge reports that the office of National Intelligence Director James Clapper cites a change in formatting as a reason for this removal.
“It’s a flat lie […] the people who would say this is a format change are weasels,” Bolton said.
Bolton said he thinks Iranian negotiators told American negotiators to “go easy on us on this terrorism stuff.” Bolton explained that Iran wants to be free of sanctions imposed because of its state sponsorship of terrorism.
The omission of Iran and Hezbollah from the report was likely a concession by the administration in nuclear weapons negotiations, Bolton said. He wondered: How many other concessions has this administration made in an effort to get a deal done?
