Earley Calls Biden Reckless on Hostage Exchange
By: Campaign to Elect Joe Earley
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. - Sept. 21, 2023 - PRLog -- Today Veteran and Republican Congressional candidate in West Virginia's 2nd District, Joe Earley called President Joe Biden's hostage exchange with Iran reckless.
"Like the failed withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden was more interested in grabbing a headline than protecting the national security of our nation. While I am happy 5 Americans have been returned, the President should not have unfrozen $6 billion of Iran's frozen assets. It should have been a one for one exchange, not a huge payment for freedom. The end result of Biden's huge mistake is that every American will now have a large price tag on their head."
"This Presidential failure will have repercussions for decades. First, this unfrozen money will allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon. It jeopardizes peace in the Middle East. Second, Americans will be less safe when traveling abroad," said Earley.
"Once again, I challenge my opponent Riley Moore to make a statement. Last week, he refused to endorse holding an impeachment hearing on Biden's dirty dealings. Will he hide on this issue as well?" challenged Earley.
