Rubio Slams Obama’s Spying of Israel in New TV Ad

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio on Tuesday slammed the Obama administration for the NSA’s spying of Israel in a new TV commercial released on Tuesday.

“Barack Obama released terrorists from Guantanamo, and now they are plotting to attack us. Instead of fighting to fund our troops .. he spies on Israel, and cut a deal with Iran,” Rubio says in the direct-to-camera spot.

In an Op-Ed for the National Journal on Tuesday, Rubio suggested that not only has the nuclear deal with Iran failed to stop their pursuit for a nuclear wepaon in the future, but they have already stretched the terms of Obama’s deal. “Iran is now trying to claim that a U.S. law aimed at protecting Americans from terrorists trying to come to the United States is an American violation of the agreement. This is a blatant attempt to pressure the Obama administration not to seek or enforce any new sanctions whatsoever, even those targeting human-rights abuses and support for terrorism, which are allowed under the deal,” RUbio wrote.

The Republican presidential hopeful promised, “I will pressure Iran on all fronts across the Middle East. I will increase support to our allies in the region that are on the frontline of Iran’s nefarious activities. The mullahs will no longer have an American president to push around.”
