Last Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that the US has exported and continues to export hundreds of millions of dollars in commodities to Iran.
In fact, despite Bush Administration's ‘axis of evil’ rhetoric, the number of exports has increased “tenfold,” during the past eight years, including $158 million worth of cigarettes alone. When asked by a journalist about this issue, the Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain said jokingly that “maybe that’s a way of killing them.” However, What was more disturbing was the fact that he did know about this and had to check into it.
How could a Presidential Candidate who calls Iran the greatest threat to America not know this significant piece of information???
