Graham Statement on Iran

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made the following statement on reports that Iran has enriched uranium. Graham is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The recent news that Iran has enriched uranium is very disturbing. There is nothing worse – short of Al-Qaeda having a nuclear bomb – than Iran having a nuclear bomb. “We know the President of Iran is a dangerous man. He has threatened to destroy Israel and continues to deny the Holocaust ever happened. Based upon his words and past actions, I’m very concerned that if Iran develops a nuclear weapon they would use it to attack Israel. “I agree with President Bush that a nuclear-armed Iran is a danger to the security of the Middle East and the world. I hope we can solve this problem through diplomacy. However, we must ensure that all options remain on the table.” #####
