Washington Free Beacon: “Leading members of Congress have petitioned Iranian officials to grant them entry to the country ahead of a major speech by a top Iranian diplomat scheduled to take place Friday in Washington, D.C., according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Three members of Congress, including a member of the House intelligence committee, have been petitioning Iranian officials to grant them travel visas so they can meet with American hostages and inspect Iran’s nuclear sites to ensure compliance with the recently implemented nuclear deal.

The lack of reply by Iran has led to accusations of hypocrisy by these lawmakers, who noted that the Obama administration has repeatedly permitted Iranian officials to travel to America for meetings and events.”

Opinion: I promise to try to not be sarcastic, but why would Congress be indignant about not being allowed to inspect Iran’s nuclear sites, when that same Congress, by approving one of the many secret side deals of the Iran nuclear deal, allowed Iran to use its own experts to inspect it’s sites?

Could it be that some members of Congress don’t trust Iran?

I know, that was sarcastic.
