Yesterday on “Secure Freedom Radio,” Andy McCarthy joined Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney to discuss the Senate’s failure to pass a resolution blocking the Iran deal, castigating Republicans for their inability to defeat the nuclear accord. Gaffney and McCarthy reasoned that Republicans must have been secretly hoping that the Iran deal would survive congressional resistance.
The two linked the GOP’s supposed unwillingness to block the agreement to donations the party and party leaders have received from the aerospace company Boeing, which they believe stands to profit handsomely from the loosening of sanctions against Iran.
Boeing, they agreed, should be chastised for effectively aiding the Iranian government and the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah.
As it would happen, Boeing is also a donor to none other than the Center for Security Policy.
Eli Clifton pointed out last year that Boeing, along with defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman, contributed to Gaffney’s group in 2013, in Boeing’s case to the tune of $25,000.
We hope that Gaffney can reassure us that his group is not part of the Boeing conspiracy to further Iran’s influence in the Middle East.
