Video: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Cites JINSA Iran Strategy Council Report on Senate Floor

On September 9, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cited the new JINSA-commissioned Iran Strategy Council Report on the floor of the Senate during a speech about the Iran deal:

"The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, in an assessment of the nuclear deal with Iran, expanded on the point:

Iran has acquired and developed various capabilities to execute this asymmetric strategy, including anti access/area denial...it possesses the region's largest arsenal of short and medium ballistic missiles, as well as a growing arsenal of cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles, to target military and energy installations throughout the Gulf, including U.S. ships. It also has a sizeable fleet of fast attack craft, submarines and large numbers of torpedoes and naval mines for choking off Hormuz and attacking aforementioned targets. The S-300 air defense systems could stymie U.S. air operations around the Gulf, in addition to complicating any strike on Iran's nuclear facilities."
