Washington -- Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session Congress, in the wake of continued negotiations between the Obama administration and Iran. Congressman Ken Buck released the following statement:

"Prime Minister Netanyahu's address today came at critical time. The Prime Minister stated, 'the greatest danger facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons.' He exhibits clarity of thought that our commander in chief has failed to exhibit in his dealings with Iran. A nuclear Iran is unacceptable, and it is an existential threat to Israel.  American leaders must not be shortsighted.  There are evil actors on the international stage that eagerly desire the destruction of freedom-loving people around the world. For President Obama to negotiate with a regime that refers to America as the 'Great Satan' and organizes 'Death to America' rallies is utter nonsense.  I thank Prime Minister Netanyahu -- and all government officials who attended and supported his address -- for casting politics aside and speaking truthfully about the very real threats facing the free world today,"  said Congressman Buck.

Rep. Ken Buck (CO-04) serves on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.  He serves on the OGR Subcommittees on Government Operations and the Interior and is a member of the Judiciary Subcommittees on Immigration and Border Security and Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations.
