Congress Must Investigate NPR, Ploughshares and National Security Fraud

Nearly a year has passed since the Obama administration finished negotiating its so-called "nuclear deal" with Iran. In recent weeks, we have learned that the administration deliberately lied to us about the nature and implications of this terrible agreement.
What has now become clear is that a taxpayer-funded media organization helped in this effort to propagandize and mislead the American people. As the Algemeiner newspaper reported recently, even National Public Radio's own in-house monitor, Ombudsman Elizabeth Jensen, has acknowledged that the network took $700,000 from one of the Iran deal's most aggressive promoters: the Ploughshares Fund. And NPR gave what amounted to overwhelmingly preferential on-air treatment to Ploughshares-associated advocates for the accord.
Congress must investigate the role played by the Obama administration, by taxpayer-subsidized public radio and by a tax-exempt charity to disinform us and perpetrate national security fraud.
